According to Billboard, the Super Freaky Girl rapper is taking someone who uses the moniker Nosey Heaux to court for defamation. Minaj is accusing the poster of placing a viral video on Twitter calling the rapper a “cokehead.”
The lawsuit was filed against Marley Green in federal court in New York. In the filing, Minaj’s attorneys claim that Green posts under the @noseyheauxlive account. According to the lawsuit, Green posted a video earlier this week on Monday that stated that Minaj was “shoving all this cocaine up her nose.”
Minaj’s attorney, Judd Burstein, told Billboard, “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.”
Here’s the reaction from the Nosey Heaux account about the filed lawsuit.

Green followed up with this message:
Darling Nicki, it’s too early for this dear. Shouldn’t you be pouring a bowl of cheerios for papa bear? He’s a growing boy and a healthy breakfast is important when your eyes are still developing with love beloved #itsgivingcoke #nickiminaj #Survivingthepettys #NickisTeaParty pic.twitter.com/poKnyuZnmR

Burstein also warned anyone who wants to speak ill of his client.
“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.”
Minaj doubled down on her attorney’s statement earlier today on Twitter.

Minaj’s suit is similar to Cardi B’s lawsuit against YouTuber Tasha K, in which the rapper won $4 million.
Earlier this year, Cardi was awarded the verdict on three claims of defamation, invasion of privacy, and intentional infliction of emotional distress. The federal judge in Georgia ordered the blogger to take down the various videos that referred to Cardi as “Cold Sore B” and “cokehead.”
