Kenneth Petty and Nicki Minaj are currently battling a $20 million lawsuit. In court, attorney Tyrone Blackburn, representing Jennifer Hough, presented the judge with a video, stating the two are affiliated with the Makk Balla Brims Blood gang of Queens, New York.
“[Kenneth] Petty and Maraj were both in this district, in Jamaica, Queens, New York. As seen on an Instagram live video currently up on Maraj’s Instagram page, both Maraj and Petty were seen associating with members of the Makk Ballers set of the Bloods Gang. Petty and Maraj are both members of this gang,” Blackburn said.
According to HipHopDX, the faction has been labeled the most dangerous criminal organization in New York, very organized and heavily involved in drugs, guns and rap.
Blackburn added, “Shortly after Petty and Maraj are spotted with their gangster colleagues, a member of the gang posted a death threat to Ms. Hough on Twitter, stating: ‘Jennifer if you see this, the Makks are coming to get you.’”
Hough states Petty and Minaj recently offered her $500,000 to recant her story of being raped in 1994. Kenneth Petty accepted a plea deal to the charge in 1995 and spent four years in prison.
Hough then alleged Nicki’s associates attempted to pay her a large sum of cash to help them with the situation as she detailed the harassment she experienced.

“[They were] sending people to negotiate numbers as far as money is concerned with family members, and Nicki is the one who personally reached out to me in regard to helping her, helping them in this situation,” she continued. “And then the threats that I received because I kept saying no to every offer, to every suggestion. The last incident was when one of their associates put $20,000 on my lap, and I still kept saying no. The last message I received was that I should have taken the money ’cause they’re going to take that money to put on my head.”
During an appearance on social media platform, Clubhouse, Jennifer Hough had some onlookers believing she was contradicting her claims. You can listen to the segment below.
