Nicki Minaj and Husband Fined $500K in Lawsuit Payout to Security Guard

A Los Angeles County Superior Court judge ordered musician Nicki Minaj and her husband Kenneth Petty to pay $500,000 to a security guard who filed an injury case against them. Judge Lynne M. Hobbs granted the plaintiff a default judgment on Friday due to the couple’s failure to reply to the action, as reported by XXL.

The lawsuit, Thomas Weidenmuller, accused Minaj and her husband of violently abusing him at her 2019 concert in Germany. In his 2022 lawsuit, Weidenmuller claims he was assaulted while working as a security guard at Pink Friday’s concert. The lawsuit said that it occurred on March 22, 2019.

According to the lawsuit, an unauthorized fan entered the stage area during the concert. Although security officers soon moved the fan out of the area, Minaj became enraged by the breach and began screaming at a female security guard at the show, according to the lawsuit.

Weidenmuller attempted to defuse the situation, but Minaj became enraged. According to XXL, the 41-year-old rapper and Weidenmuller had a heated disagreement before the latter allegedly tossed a sneaker at the plaintiff.

According to the lawsuit, artist Onika Tanya Maraj notified her husband about the incident with Weidenmuller. The plaintiff said Minaj eventually forced him into a separate room with Petty and her two bodyguards. According to the lawsuit, Petty then physically assaulted Weidenmuller, while Minaj and her security stood by and did nothing.

Weidenmuller stated that he had significant injuries from the incident. In addition to eight surgeries to repair a broken jaw, the plaintiff claimed he experienced head, neck, and facial pain.

Weidenmuller sought a $724,000 settlement to cover medical bills and mental suffering caused by the alleged violent assault.
