On Wednesday (Jan. 12), Hough’s lawyer Tyrone Blackburn filed a Notice of Voluntary Dismissal in the case. According to TMZ, attorney Judd Burstein, who represents the “Seeing Green” emcee, is accusing Hough and her legal team of trying to get money through a settlement. Minaj is now planning to go after Hough to recoup money that was lost in legal fees.
“You forced my client to spend over $300,000 in fees to defend a case which even my labradoodle, Gracie, could see was frivolous on both the facts and the law,” Burstein reportedly said in an email to Blackburn.
As REVOLT previously reported, back in 1995, Petty was convicted of first-degree attempted rape against Hough. Petty denied the allegations, however, he later pleaded guilty to the charges and served four-and-a-half years in prison.
Last September, Hough made her first public appearance on “The Real” to talk about the incident with Petty. She said that she was on her way to school when he approached her and grabbed her by the jacket. Hough stated she felt him press something into her back, which she believed to be a gun, as he led her to a house. According to her lawsuit, the weapon was later discovered to be a knife.
Hough said that she was later forced to relocate herself and her family due to the assault. On Aug. 21, 2020, she filed a lawsuit against the Pettys, alleging that they’ve been tormenting her and her relatives to try to get her to drop the allegations.
Although the harassment suit against Minaj has been dropped, the one against her husband is still in place. The Pink Friday rapper seemingly responded to the news by tweeting a unicorn emoji, which she uses to represent the Barbz.
