Nicki Minaj has often expressed a ton of love for her older brother, she got very emotional when he got married earlier this year, writing this on Instagram:
I would cross the ocean for u. I would go & bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man. Can’t believe I cried during his wedding and his first dance like a punk. May God bless him and his union. Tonight has been one of my favorite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.
Well this morning the blogs are buzzing with some seriously sad news! Her brother has been charged with raping a 12 yr old according to reports.
According to the NY Daily News
Jelani Maraj, 37, was arraigned Thursday on a first-degree rape charge and freed from a Nassau County jail on $100,000 bail.
“The victim was someone he had access to,” a source close to the case said.
Maraj is due back in court on Dec. 9.
We do not know much more than that and many of the comments about the case have been about how embarrassed Nicki must be. However with a 12 year old involved Nicki’s embarrassment seems pretty minuscule. We will see how this case develops.
