On Wednesday (Jan. 12), the lawsuit against Nicki was voluntarily dismissed by Hough.
A source tells TMZ that there was no money exchanged to make it go away. Nicki’s husband, Kenneth Petty, remains a defendant.
Nicki is reportedly planning to go after Hough to recoup legal fees. The rapper’s attorney, Judd Burstein, claims it was all an attempt to shake down Nicki down for money.

Burstein sent an email to Hugh’s lawyer, which reads, “In my view, your conduct in pursuing this case against Nicki represents the worst of our legal system: bottom-feeding lawyers who pursue frivolous actions against a celebrity assuming that they will be paid off if they throw enough dirt.”
Judd continues, “You forced my client to spend over $300,000 in fees to defend a case which even my labradoodle, Gracie, could see was frivolous on both the facts and the law.”
