Nicki Minaj Hires Powerhouse Lawyer to Win Lawsuit Against Husbands Sexual Assault Victim
The 38-year-old Trinidadian femcee is reported to have hired lawyer Judd Burstein, who once represented boxer Oscar De La Hoya, to beat up Jennifer Hough in court.
AceShowbiz –Nicki Minaj‘s legal battle against Kenneth Petty’s sexual assault victim is getting nastier. It was reported that the “Anaconda” hitmaker has hired a powerhouse lawyer to win the $20 lawsuit against Jennifer Hough.
According to court documents obtained by Radar Online, Nicki has brought Judd Burstein to represent her in the case. Judd was the Oscar De La Hoya‘s attorney when the boxer fought against a Scores stripper and former ESPN vice president Keith Clinkscales in his Erin Andrews scandal.
The report arrived just days after Jennifer filed a $15 million default judgment against Nicki and Kenneth. Jennifer took the move because the couple allegedly ignore her lawsuit.
In a request to Douglas Palmer of U.S. District Court – Eastern District of New York, Jennifer’s lawyer, Tyrone A Blackburn, asks to “please enter the default of defendants Onika Tanya Maraj, and Kenneth Petty, AKA Zoo, pursuant to Rule 55(a) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure for failure to plead or otherwise defend this action as fully appears from the court file herein and from the attached affirmation of Tyrone A. Blackburn, Esq.”
Jennifer filed her lawsuit against the pair in August as she accused them of intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment as well as witness intimidation. She claimed the femcee sent her lawyers to her home to pressure her into withdrawing her rape allegations.
Prior to that, the “Bang Bang” hitmaker reportedly tried to bribe Jennifer’s brother through her assistants. The attempts, however, didn’t work.
Kenneth was convicted and placed on a sex offender list, but Nicki has always maintained her husband and Jennifer were dating at the time of the incident. However, the victim already denied the star’s claims, telling Garcelle Beauvais and Adrienne Bailon on “The Real“, “We both were 16, we were never in a relationship. I just felt woman to woman that was wrong of her.”
