Nicki Minaj and Husband Ordered to Pay $500K for Backstage Assault in Germany 

Default Judgment: Nicki Minaj and Kenneth Petty were ordered to pay $500,000 in a default judgment after failing to respond to a lawsuit over an alleged backstage assault. 

Security Guard's Lawsuit: Security staffer Thomas Weidenmuller sued Minaj and Petty, claiming Petty broke his jaw in a backstage beating during a 2019 concert in Frankfurt, Germany. 

Alleged Altercation: Weidenmuller intervened when Minaj berated a female security guard. Minaj threw a shoe at Weidenmuller, and Petty later allegedly struck him, causing serious injury. 

Injury and Treatment: Weidenmuller suffered a broken jaw and underwent multiple surgeries. He continues to experience ongoing pain and requires further medical treatment. 

Requested Damages: Weidenmuller initially sought $21,000 for medical bills and $700,000 for ongoing injury and emotional distress. The judge awarded $503,318 in damages. 

Unsuccessful Attempts to Serve: Weidenmuller's lawyers made repeated attempts to serve Minaj and Petty with the lawsuit, but were unsuccessful. They eventually published the summons in a newspaper. 

Lack of Response: Minaj and Petty did not respond to the lawsuit, leading to a default judgment against them. 

Legal Troubles for Petty: Kenneth Petty faced legal troubles before, including house arrest and probation for threatening remarks and failing to register as a sex offender.
