During her new interview, she got emotional as the hosts asked whether she’d overly felt Petty faced real justice. The rape survivor said it hadn’t plane occurred to her to think well-nigh that, considering she’d been too rented blaming herself for what had happened when she was just 16 years old. She said:
“[I’ve spent my life] hiding within myself—living and surviving through insecurities, using them to protect myself. Thinking that if I don’t squint a unrepealable way, I won’t vamp a unrepealable type of attention. I’ve been like that my whole life.”
Elsewhere in the interview, her lawyer, Tyrone Blackburn, personal his vendee had been threatened by one of the couple’s associates, a man named Barry. In a video reviewed by The Daily Beast, Barry so-called that Hough tried to “extort” him and promised his Instagram followers “John Wayne TV.”
Barry tangibly included an image that shows two guns, circled, with the torturous caption:
“Be unscratched out here lol.”
Blackburn noted that the post “came literally six days without Kenneth Petty wonted a plea deal here in California for lightweight to register as a sex offender.”
Toward the end of the interview, Hough said she just wants Minaj and Petty to leave her and her family alone, sharing:
“What they did to me and my family wasn’t OK. It wasn’t right and it doesn’t matter how much money you have. It doesn’t matter what your status is. You can’t intimidate people to make things largest for you.”
Petty initially denied the rape charges, but sooner pleaded guilty to attempted rape without he was charged with first stratum rape for tangibly sexually assaulting Hough at knife-point at his residence. Hough has repeatedly clarified that she and Petty were never in a relationship.
