The Rap star’s attorney, Judd Burstein, calls the commentator “the ultimate ‘nobody’ without any accomplishments to her name” in court papers. However Burstein claims the lawsuit is merited stating: “But this is the age of social media, one in which a ‘nobody’ can find an undeserved following through relentless self-promotion.”

The alleged comment, appeared in a September 12 video posted to Twitter. Minaj is suing Green for defamation saying she’s never used cocaine and wants a jury to decide damages of no less than $75,000.
