Onika “Nicki Minaj” Maraj-Petty has reportedly filed a lawsuit against blogger Marley “Nosey Heaux” Green. According to TMZ, she is seeking $75,000 in damages.
The lawsuit centers around an Instagram Live video featuring Green discussing Minaj. During the video, Green, known on social media as Nosey Heaux, allegedly called the rapper a “cokehead.”
“[She was] shoving all this cocaine, shoving in all this cocaine up her nose. Allegedly. Thank you. Allegedly. But we all know it’s true,” Green said, according to TMZ.
“Listen, I can’t even say allegedly with that ’cause I, we all know it’s true. I’m not saying allegedly on that. Nicki Minaj is a cokehead.”
The lawsuit also claims that Green made disparaging comments regarding Nicki Minaj’s son.
“Your baby is going to be a rapist, too,” she allegedly said, referencing the child’s father’s previous conviction for attempted rape.
Minaj has not addressed Green by name, but her attorney, Judd Burstein, issued a statement to Pitchfork.
“Marley Green is a disgrace—someone so lacking in fundamental decency that she has posted vile comments about Nicki’s 1-year-old son. 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,” Burstein said.
Green has taken to Twitter to respond to the lawsuit.
“Nicki Minaj lied,” she wrote as she tagged TMZ.
