Keep reading to learn everything we know about the lawsuit.
Why Is Nicki Minaj Suing Nosey Heaux?
In court documents obtained by In Touch, the “Super Bass” rapper filed a complaint against Green on September 14, 2022. In the paperwork, Green is labeled as the “defendant” and Minaj is known as the “plaintiff.”
“The Defendants herein have outrageously defamed Plaintiff by posting a video on their Twitter page in which Defendant Marley Green (‘Green’) who goes by the name of ‘Nosey Heaux,’ falsely and maliciously stated that Plaintiff is a ‘cokehead’ who is ‘shoving all this cocaine up her nose,’” the documents read.
The paperwork also pointed out that the Twitter account Nosey Heaux Live has amassed more than 3,000 followers, noting that the video accusing Minaj of using cocaine garnered almost 2,000 “likes” and was retweeted more than 260 times.
“[Minaj] is shoving all this cocaine, shoving in all this cocaine up her nose. Allegedly. Thank you. Allegedly,” Green was heard claiming in her video. “But we all know it’s true. F—k. Listen, I can’t even say allegedly with that ‘cause I — we know it’s true. I’m not saying allegedly on that. Nicki Minaj is a cokehead.”
Aside from Minaj, the court documents also noted that Nosey Heaux “posted vile comments about Plaintiff’s 1-year-old son.” The MTV Video Vanguard Award winner shares son, nicknamed “Papa Bear,” with husband Kenneth “Zoo” Petty.
Toward the end of the court records, the complaint alleged that Green “has been acting as a proxy for another performer who, mistakenly, believing that she and Plaintiff are stars of equal stature, has repeatedly used other social media intermediaries in a hopeless effort to advance her career at Plaintiff’s expense.”
“However, the fact that Green was acting at the behest of another does not make her conduct less egregious or excuse her from the consequences of the damages she has caused Plaintiff to suffer,” the documents concluded.
TMZ was the first to report the news of the defamation lawsuit.
