Weidenmuller was working as head of security for the Queens rapper in Germany when a fan attempted to get on stage while she was performing her hit cult classic, Did It On Em, according to the report. The security guard says security personnel, members of her entourage and Petty all jumped in.
“The concert-goer did not cause harm to any other person, nor did he damage any property during or after his limited time on stage,” court documents say. “He simply danced on stage to the music. He did not attempt to, and did not actually, make any physical contact with Minaj while on stage.”
But after the incident, Minaj allegedly threw a fit at Weidenmuller and threw shoes at him. He then says he was forced to apologize while he held back tears. He was then forced to apologize again on camera.
The filing also states that Minaj verbally assaulted him and Petty subsequently punched him on the right side of his face. He was hospitalized for 10 days following the incident, according to The Blast.
This is not the first time the couple has faced legal trouble. In 2021, a woman named Jennifer Hough sued the couple after claiming she was pressured and intimidated to retract allegations that Petty raped her in Queens when they were both 16. According to The New York Times, Petty was “arrested that day and was charged with first-degree rape.” He subsequently accepted a plea deal in the case and was convicted of first-degree attempted rape, serving four years in prison.
