Jennifer Hough, Kenneth Petty’s alleged victim, is breaking her silence in her first-ever tv interview with the hosts of The Real.
The Real announced the exclusive interview on their social media channels earlier this week announcing that Hough will be speaking about the 1994 assault and the alleged harassment from the Pettys camp.
Hough’s reasoning behind coming out now is that she no longer wants to be afraid and wants to finally speak her truth. “I feel like the actions that were taken in regards to this whole situation have put me in a different type of fear at my age now, and it was wrong. I don’t want to be afraid anymore so the only way not to be afraid is to continue to speak up,” Hough told The Real hosts.
As we’ve previously reported per TMZ, Hough has accused the Pettys of “intentional infliction of emotional distress, harassment and witness intimidation on top of the Petty’s sexual assault related to the 1995 conviction.” After the 1994 assault, Petty pled guilty to attempted rape and served four and a half years in prison.
However, Hough’s recent desire to speak has angered Nicki Minaj’s fans. The Barbz have voiced their “theories” as to why the Pink Friday rapper is being roped into Petty’s legal issues. They claim since Nicki has been speaking out against COVID-19 vaccines as of late, it is all a ruse to dismiss their favorite rapper’s message.
Take a look at what the Barbz have to say:
So let me get this straight , Nicki argues with some powerful ppl last week and this week the real interviewing the alleged victim? Y’all don’t see the connection ? It’s just me ? Ok— Raneé • 🦋🏳️🌈 (@DaBrooklynWay_) September 21, 2021

You're definitely spilling. I said the same thing. There's no way Nicki nor Kenny would be walking free right now if any of the statements she made were true. This girl is being paid by Atlantic to sue Nicki and it's so clear. They also got her an appearance on The Real.— INVASION OF P-A-Y-O-L-A (@mettaxwur) September 21, 2021
They doing anything and everything to tarnish Nicki reputation including helping pay Jennifer lawyer allegedly but I know for a fact God and Nicki angels got her covered and no weapons form against her will prosper— marion (@marion19787379) September 21, 2021
Although some Barbz did come to the defense of Hough and mentioned her retelling the story accusing Hough of being a white woman who was just lying on behalf of Petty.
Nicki really lied and said Jennifer Hough was a WHITE WOMAN to pin a different narrative… insane. https://t.co/9Do4acyhdp— mylia ❤️🩹 (@itstrahuna) September 22, 2021
The barbz should be throwing a divorce party because I don’t see how Nicki can stay with him after this interview with Jennifer Hough 💔 pic.twitter.com/x3aknuFmN4— DeMarko (@freakymarko) September 22, 2021
