The rap superstar Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, have been sued by a woman he attempted to rape in 1994 after allegedly harassing her to recant her story.

The woman, now 43, alleged she was attacked at knifepoint as a 16-year-old in Queens, New York City, by Petty. He was arrested on suspicion of rape and pleaded guilty to attempted rape, serving four and a half years in prison.

The victim has filed a lawsuit alleging Minaj and Petty, who has an 11-month-old son, have been harassing and intimidating her to force her to recant her story.

Minaj, 38, is accused of contacting the victim’s family and lying to her social media followers about the incident.

The lawsuit, filed in the US district court for the eastern district of New York, claims Minaj offered her $500,000 (£360,000) to drop the story.

Nicki Minaj Biography, Wiki

Nicki Minaj was born Onika Tanya Maraj on December 8, 1982, in Saint James, Trinidad, and Tobago, and moved with her family to Queens, New York, when she was 5 years old.

Minaj’s father was a severe drug addict with a long history of violence. At one point, he set fire to the family’s home in a failed attempt to kill Minaj’s mother.

Those early struggles, Minaj has said, helped fuel her drive to rise above the life her parents knew. “I’ve always had this female-empowerment thing in the back of my mind,” she told Details magazine, “because I wanted my mother to be stronger, and she couldn’t be. I thought, ‘If I’m successful, I can change her life.'”

To reach that point, the young Nicki Minaj developed personas for herself that would allow her to reinvent herself. An early incarnation was “Cookie,” then came “Harajuku Barbie” before finally settling on Nicki Minaj.

“Fantasy was my reality,” she has said. Minaj clearly had a knack for performance. At the age of 12, she authored her first rap, then went on to delve into acting at LaGuardia High School of Music and Art, the school that inspired the movie Fame.

But her acting career didn’t take off, and she took up a range of steady jobs, including waitressing at Red Lobster, where she was fired for being rude to customers.
