Celebrity gossiper Marley Green, known to her online followers as “Nosey Heaux,” has had a lot to say about Nicki Minaj and it appears her distasteful words may cost her big time. According to The FADER, the rapper has filed a $75,000 lawsuit against Green over comments the vlogger made regarding her alleged use of illegal substances.
The complaint was filed in New York on Wednesday, Sept. 14. In it, Minaj’s attorney Judd Burstein, accuses Green of defamation, claiming she’s lying about the rapper’s drug use.
The comments in question stem from a video Green shared on social media in which Green makes allegations that Nicki Minaj does cocaine and refers to the rapper as a “cokehead.”
“[Nicki’s] shoving all this cocaine up her nose,” Green exclaimed in the viral video that has since been retweeted nearly 300 times since Monday. “Allegedly. But we all know it’s true. F***—listen, I can’t even say allegedly with that because I—we know it’s true. I’m not saying allegedly on that. Nicki Minaj is a cokehead.”
The complaint also says that Green made a “vile comment” about Minaj’s one-year-old son, whom she affectionately calls “Papa Bear.” According to the complaint, Green says Minaj’s son is “going to be a rapist, too,” referencing Minaj’s husband, Kenneth Petty who was convicted of attempted rape in 1995 and served four years in prison.
Minaj and her legal team believe that Green is working for an unidentified enemy of the rapper who also happens to be a performer as well. The allegations read:
“On information and belief, and as discovery will likely reveal, 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.”
Although Minaj’s legal team refers to Green as someone “whose main accomplishments in life have been a string of criminal charges, bail jumping and bad debts,” per TMZ, the rap star is adamant that does not use cocaine and does not want to run the risk of someone believing the lies cooked up by the social media personality. So, not only is Minaj asking for $75,000 in damages, but she’s also asking for the “Nosey Heaux” name.
“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 in a statement to The FADER. “Anyone else who spreads lies about Nicki will suffer a similar fate. My marching orders are to aggressively sue anyone with a media or social media following who damages her with intentional lies. Eventually, the lesson will be learned.”
Meanwhile, Green has spoken out about how Minaj has “harassed” her since she released the video alleging the star’s drug use.
“Nicki Minaj is unhinged and harassing me on Instagram. She doxxed me and sent her Barbz to threaten to kill me,” tweeted the vlogger. “She’s been commenting under my IG posts since like 24 hours ago. No one around her is smart enough to just take her phone.”
