Nicki Minaj’s lawyer, Judd Burstein, has responded to the accusation that she has “a reputation of supporting sex offenders,” leveled by the attorney for Jennifer Hough. Burnstein slammed the accusation as a “baseless and disgusting attack.”
The accusation is a reference to Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, who was convicted of first-degree attempted rape in 1995. Hugh claims the two have attempted to silence her from speaking out about her experience. Petty was also arrested in 2020 for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.
Burstein added: “Mr. Blackburn surely included this outrageous accusation knowing that the media will likely report on the lie, thereby creating the very reputation which he had no basis for alleging in the first place.”
