Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty is certainly a controversial figure who has had trouble with the law in the past. That troubled past is still causing him problems. It seems they were accused of associating with gang members recently.
For those who don’t know, Kenneth Petty is due to stand trial on federal charges of failing to register as a sex offender when he moved from New York to California in 2019. The charges are from a 1995 incident when Petty and his victim were both 16.
Petty was convicted of one count of attempted rape in the first degree, assault in the second degree, unlawful imprisonment in the second degree, and criminal possession of a weapon. He also pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter in 2006 and was released from prison in 2013 and would marry Nicki Minaj in 2019.
Jennifer Hough, the woman who accused Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty of rape, recently opened up about the incident as well. According to All Hip Hop, Tyrone Blackburn, the attorney representing Jennifer Hough, accused Minaj and Petty of associating with the Makk Balla Brims gang based in Queens, New York.
“[Kenneth] Petty and Maraj were both in this district, in Jamaica, Queens, New York. As seen on an Instagram live video currently up on Maraj’s Instagram page, both Maraj and Petty were seen associating with members of the Makk Ballers set of the Bloods Gang. Petty and Maraj are both members of this gang.
Shortly after Petty and Maraj are spotted with their gangster colleagues, a member of the gang posted a death threat to Ms. Hough on Twitter, stating: ‘Jennifer if you see this, the Makks are coming to get you.’”
Hough is suing Minaj and Petty and they could be facing a $15 million defamation lawsuit as well. Hough previously claimed Petty sexually assaulted her in 1994 when they were both 16. It is highly unlikely that the ongoing sexual assault case will end anytime soon from the looks of it.
