Jennifer Hough, the woman who was suing Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty for alleged harassment and intimidation in efforts to get her to recant her account that Petty sexually assaulted her, voluntarily dismissed her case against Minaj on Wednesday, January 12.

According to TMZ, there was no financial settlement that made Hough drop the case, however, Petty still remains a defendant, meaning the case against him is still active.

“The case was voluntarily dismissed as to Nicki in NY,” Hough’s attorney, Tyrone Blackburn said in a statement. “The case against Kenneth is ongoing. This does not mean that Nicki Minaj is in the clear. In fact, she’s probably in a worst position now than prior to when the case started. So, I would say, stay tuned.”

Petty was convicted of assaulting Hough in 1995 and served four years in prison. Hough spoke about the incident publicly on The Real, back in October.

Minaj has not addressed the dismissal, but tweeted a unicorn emoji in response to a tweet that quoted her verse on Tasha Cobb Leonard‘s 2017 release “I’m Getting Ready,” which read, “I don’t gotta talk the lord defends me.”

The Queen rapper’s attorney,  Judd Burstein, responded to the dismissal by e-mailing Hough’s lawyer.

“In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”

Judd continues, “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.”

Petty is to return to court in March for sentencing after accepting a plea deal back in August for failing to register as a sex offender in the state of California.
