Nicki Minaj’s husband Kenneth Petty’s accuser Jennifer Hough gave her first TV interview this week, and she’s reportedly received waves of abuse since.

TMZ writes that Hough, who spoke about being attacked by Petty when she was a teen in 1994, has become a target of online harassment from Nicki Minaj fans after the interview aired. During the episode, Hough recounted her assault, which was followed by a court case that saw Petty plead guilty to attempted rape in 1995. Earlier this month, Petty pleaded guilty to failure to register as a sex offender in the state of California.

Hough’s attorney Tyrone Blackburn told TMZ that among the messages are death threats, and allegations she’s only accused Petty for financial gain. “Hope you die bitch … Clout chaser leave nicki alone,” reads one message in a screenshot. Another said, “You’re just a thief trying to make money off Nicki Minaj and Kenneth’s name.”

Blackburn added that a Minaj fan shared a concerning tweet containing Hough’s personal contact information, and that the behavior of the Barbz reinforces Hough’s comments on living in fear.

Last month, Hough filed a lawsuit against Minaj and Kenneth Petty, claiming they’ve continued to harass her and pressure her to recant her story. Hough claimed Minaj personally contacted her to get her to recant, offering to fly Hough and her family to Los Angeles. The suit additionally claims Nicki’s team contacted Hough’s brother with a $500,000 cash bribe to get her to rescind the story.

Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, said she’s being harassed by reporters after she shared COVID-19 vaccine misinformation online.

“My cousin in Trinidad won’t get the vaccine cuz his friend got it & become impotent,” she wrote in a much-talked-about tweet. “His testicles became swollen. His friend was weeks away from getting married, now the girl called off the wedding.”
