Nicki Minaj on the Hook For $750,000 Over Husband’s Alleged Dressing Room Assault


Nicki Minaj has found herself in more legal trouble alongside her husband, Kenneth Petty, after a security guard filed a default judgment against her.

Court documents obtained by Radar Online on Friday (April 28) reveal that Thomas Weidenmuller — a security guard who first sued the couple in 2022 for an assault that allegedly happened during a Nicki Wrld Tour show in Frankfurt, Germany, back in 2019 — has made a motion for the court to grant a default judgment in his favor, since the Pettys have failed to respond to the suit.

Weidenmuller, who is suing the couple for $753,000, has already been granted a default judgment against the “Super Freaky Girl” rapper. However, he has not yet obtained a default judgment against Minaj’s husband.

According to Weidenmuller, the alleged skirmish happened when a fan breached the security barricade and got onstage while the Pink Friday rapper was putting on her show. Though Minaj’s personal security team managed to escort the fan offstage less than 15 seconds later, Minaj and Petty allegedly confronted Weidenmuller and his team about the incident after the show.

Nicki Minaj then allegedly called a female security guard on Weidenmuller’s team a “fucking bitch” and began blasting her live on social media. That’s when Weidenmuller stepped in and escorted the female security guard away from the situation. He claims he then went to Minaj’s dressing room to address the issue and Petty allegedly punched him in the face as Minaj began cursing.

Weidenmuller also alleged that Minaj directed Petty to attack him, thus prompting the suit for “battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress, and negligence,” per the outlet.

This isn’t the first time that Kenneth Petty has landed Nicki Minaj in hot water by association. Back in December 2022, Petty was ordered to settle his ongoing lawsuit with Jennifer Hough, who accused him of harassing her in an attempt to curtail her rape allegation against him.

Hough initially sued Nicki Minaj as well, claiming the rapper took part in trying to intimidate her, although those charges were eventually dropped.

Judge James R. Cho referred the case to mediation in December and said if both parties could not come to an agreement, the case would proceed to trial.

“The case is referred to Court-annexed mediation,” the court noted in documents obtained by AllHipHop. “Parties to select a mediator by 12/20/2022 and complete mediation by 3/6/2023. Parties may participate in the mediation remotely.”

It added: “Parties shall file a joint status report two weeks after completing the mediation, but no later than 3/20/2023, whichever date is earlier.”

Both sides will engage in “limited written discovery that would facilitate settlement discussions.”
