Nicki Minaj & Husband Sued For Alleged 2019 Backstage Assault

On Wednesday (Feb.28), Radar Online broke the news that a security guard sued Nicki Minaj and her husband, Kenneth Petty, over an alleged backstage assault in 2019. Thomas Weidenmuller, the plaintiff, submitted medical evidence related to his broken jaw and requested a default judgment.

Weidenmuller served the couple; however, neither has responded.

Weidenmuller asked for $503k in damages after Minaj and Petty failed to respond to his suit. His previous attempts to obtain a default judgment failed due to technicalities.

Weidenmuller said he worked as a security guard at Minaj’s concert in Germany on March 22, 2019. In the middle of her performance, a fan jumped on stage. The fan didn’t contact Minaj, but the incident reportedly upset her.

Weidenmuller saw Minaj yelling backstage at a female security guard about a fan making it on stage. Minaj was filming the female guard with her phone while demanding answers. When Weidenmuller tried to intervene, she threw a shoe at him but missed.

Weidenmuller was asked by the guard to come to a private room for Minaj. Upon arrival, he found Minaj, Petty, and two of Minaj’s personal guards inside. The court documents read the following:

“[Minaj] repeatedly screamed obscenities at him. She shouted, “Who do you think you are?” and demanded to know why he interrupted her when she attempted to video record her confrontation with the female security guard. She once again referred to the female security guard as a “fucking b—-” and falsely insisted that Weidenmüller must have a physical or romantic relationship with her.”

“While Minaj screamed obscenities at me, Petty repositioned himself out of my eyesight and without warning struck me in the fact, which stunned and disoriented me. Because of the surprise nature of the attack, I am not sure as to whether Petty hit me with his fist or with a weapon.”

Weidenmuller told the court he had to undergo multiple surgeries for his injuries, including a broken jaw.

“I now have five plates in my jaw and my jaw has not yet been fully reconstructed,” said Weidenmuller. “The doctors must still insert implants into my jaw as a part of the reconstruction process. In the interim, the doctors have inserted donor bones from a deceased person into my mouth in order to preserve space for future implants.”

The judge has deferred the ruling. Nicki Minaj is set to embark on a world tour in March.
