Nicki Minaj Sues Twitter User She Says Called Her a ‘Cokehead’

Nicki Minaj is suing a social media persona referred to as “Nosey Heaux” for defamation over a viral video on Twitter during which the account allegedly referred to as the rapper a “cokehead.”

In a grievance filed Wednesday in New York federal court docket, Minaj’s attorneys claimed {that a} lady named Marley Green was behind the @noseyheauxlive account – and that she had “outrageously defamed” the rapper with a video this week claiming she was “shoving all this cocaine up her nose.”

Attorneys for Minaj (actual identify Onika Tanya Maraj) stated Green was only a “nobody” who was spreading “lies” concerning the star, however that social media had allowed her claims to “metastasize” as they had been retweeted and appreciated by hundreds of different customers.

“In a different age, Green’s lie would have been meaningless,” Minaj’s attorneys wrote. “While social media is an extraordinarily effective vehicle for spreading lies,” they added,” it doesn’t confer a license to take action.”

According to the lawsuit, the Nosey Heaux account on Twitter posted the video on Monday (Sept. 12). In it, Green allegedly acknowledged that Minaj was “shoving all this cocaine, shoving in all this cocaine up her nose. Allegedly. Thank you. Allegedly. But we all know it’s true. Fuck—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 coke head.”

In a tweet Wednesday morning after information of the lawsuit broke, the @noseyheauxlive account tweeted that Minaj had “lied.” In one other tweet days earlier, the account stated: “I stand by wtf I said @NICKIMINAJ WAS ON INSTAGRAM WITH COCAINE RUNNING OUT OF HER NOSE.” The account didn’t return direct messages looking for touch upon the brand new lawsuit.

In a press release to Billboard, Minaj’s lawyer Judd Burstein stated: “Marley Green is a disgrace — someone so lacking in fundamental decency that she has posted vile comments about Nicki’s one 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.”

Minaj’s new lawsuit echoes an analogous case filed by Cardi B towards a YouTuber who made claims about drug use and different illicit conduct. Following a trial earlier this yr, Cardi won a $4 million verdict after jurors stated the girl had defamed the rapper.

In his assertion, Burstein warned that extra such circumstances might be coming: “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.”
