Nicki Minaj has been dropped from the harassment lawsuit filed by Jennifer Hough, the woman who accused her husband, Kenneth Petty of sexual assault.

According to court documents reviewed by TMZ, Hough agreed to voluntarily dismiss the suit against Minaj, but is continuing her litigation against Petty.

An insider told the outlet that no settlement had been reached in coming to the accord to release Minaj from the suit, in which Petty had stated that the 39-year-old artist had made harassing and threatening maneuvers toward her.

Minaj’s lawyer Judd Burstein told TMZ that Hough and her legal team had sought to obtain money from the wealthy singer throughout the case, which was filed last August, and had strived to reach a settlement the entire time.

The outlet cited an email it reviewed sent from Burstein to Hough’s lawyer Tyrone Blackburn in which Burstein ripped his legal rival in the case for trying to make an easy dollar off of the star.

‘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,’ Burstein told Blackburn in the message.
