A judge has mandated that Nicki Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty, settle his legal dispute with Jennifer Hough, who has accused him of sexual assault.

Hough sued Petty in 2021, alleging harassment, infliction of emotional distress, and intimidation of witnesses. However, in an effort to facilitate a resolution between the parties, Judge James R. Cho has requested that the case be sent to mediation.

According to court documents that AllHipHop has access to, “Parties to select a mediator by 12/20/2022 and complete mediation by 3/6/2023.” “[They] may participate remotely in the mediation. A joint status report must be submitted by [both sides] no later than 3/20/2023, or two weeks after the mediation concludes.

Hough had already sued Minaj, charging her with taking part in the alleged intimidation and harassment. She further asserts that Minaj intimidated her in an effort to persuade her to retract her claims that Petty had assaulted her when they were both teenagers; this accusation resulted in his conviction for first-degree attempted rape and nearly four years in prison.

As Minaj avoided a $20 million default judgment against her after Hough’s legal team claimed she neglected to reply to the action, Hough has subsequently dropped her case against Minaj.

Minaj sent a letter to the judge presiding over the case stating, “My inability to answer to the lawsuit was the product of an innocent mistake, and I beg the court to allow the delay so that I can defend what I feel to be an absolutely ridiculous matter.” Petty, who admitted guilt to failing to register as a sex offender last year, has made an effort to redeem his name by claiming that he was never given the chance to refute the allegations. However, the court ruled that his claim was “meritless” because the statute of limitations had already run in the case.

On January 6, 2023, Hough and Petty are expected back in court for oral arguments.
