December 09, (THEWILL) – Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty and his sexual assault accuser, Jennifer Hough, has been ordered by Judge James R. Cho, to settle their lawsuit.
Hough had sued Petty last year for causing emotional distress, harassment and witness intimidation against her.
However, Judge Cho, has referred the case to mediation.
“Parties to select a mediator by 12/20/2022 and complete mediation by 3/6/2023,” documents show. “[They] may participate in the mediation remotely. [Both sides] shall file a joint status report two weeks after completing the mediation, but no later than 3/20/2023, whichever date is earlier.”
Hough also sued Kenneth’s wife, Minaj, claiming that the rapper took part in the harassment campaign.
According to Hough, the couple harassed and threatened her to make her recant her rape allegations against Petty.
Hough later dropped her claims against Minaj, but her allegations against Kenneth still stands.
Petty is also pursuing legal action against the State of New York over his sex offender status. He wants to get his name removed from New York’s sex offender registry.
The 44-year old claimed that he has never been able to challenge his sex offender status. However, the court didn’t meet for Petty’s claims.
