Nicki Minaj Files Defamation Suit Against Youtuber Over ‘Cokehead’ Allegations
Nicki Minaj is suing a YouTube named Nosey Heaux, born Marley Green, following the release of a video in which she claimed that Minaj is ” . . . shoving in all this cocaine up her nose.” According to TMZ, the court documents say that she later doubled down and said, “But we all know it’s true. I can’t even say allegedly with that ‘cause I, we all know it’s true. I’m not saying alleged on that. Nicki Minaj is a cokehead.”
Minaj’s legal team has also said that Green made “vile” comments about the rapper’s one-year-old son. Green reportedly told Minaj to get therapy for her infant son because, “Your baby is going to be a rapist, too.” Minaj is married to Kenneth Petty, who was convicted of rape in 1995.
In the suit, Green is labeled as a “nobody” whose “main accomplishments in life have been a string of criminal charges, bail jumping and bad debts.” Nicki’s attorney Judd Burstein said the “cokehead” video garnered 2,000 likes and over 250 retweets on Twitter.
Burstein added, “When this case is over, she will no longer be permitted to use the name ‘Nosey Heaux’ because we will take her trademark from her when she does not have enough money to pay the judgment. Anyone else who spreads lies about Nicki will suffer a similar fate. My marching orders are to aggressively sue anyone with a media or social media following who damages her with intentional lies. Eventually, the lesson will be learned.”
Minaj has claimed she’s never used cocaine and is seeking $75,000 in damages.
