Nicki Minaj has filed a defamation lawsuit against a blogger over a drug allegation.
Judd Burstein, an attorney for the “Super Bass” rapper, submitted documents to a New York court on Wednesday in which he claimed that the woman allegedly behind the @noseyheauxlive social media account, Marley Green, “outrageously” stated in a video posted on Monday that Minaj was a “coke head” and had been “shoving in all this cocaine up her nose.”
“In a different age, Green’s lie would have been meaningless,” he stated in the lawsuit. “While social media is an extraordinarily effective vehicle for spreading lies… it does not confer a license to do so.”
In addition, Burstein alleged Green was “acting as a proxy” for one of Minaj’s rivals, presumably, Cardi B.
“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,” the lawyer continued.
“Now let’s hope the ppl you guys r doing all this dirty work for love you enough to hire top notch lawyers for you & to pay your bills once I own your blogs, your shows, those IG pages y’all tried to protect so bad. Couple artists in the folder too. I’ll own your publishing. Duds,” Nick Minaj said.
Nicki Minaj, 38, has denied ever using cocaine. She is seeking $75,000 in damages. Green has not yet officially responded to the lawsuit but she took to social media to claim Nicki was harassing her.
“Nicki Minaj is unhinged and harassing me on Instagram. She doxxed me and sent her barbz to threaten to kill me. 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,” Marley Green wrote.
