Nicki Minaj Stands Behind Her Older Brother, Post $100,000 To Get Him Out Of Jail After Being Charged With Rape Of Minor
Nicki Minaj stands behind her older brother who has been accused of raping a child younger than 13 several times between April and November.
Jelani Maraj, 37, of Baldwin, was arraigned Thursday in a Long Island hospital on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct against a child, a Nassau County court official said.
Although he was arrested on Tuesday reports alleged that he suffered an unknown medical condition that required him to be arraigned two days later at Nassau University Medical Center.
Citing court documents, the New York Post reports that Nicki paid for Jelani’s $100,000 bail on Friday, using two of her houses as collateral.
“She was prepared to do anything for her brother,” a source told the news outlet.
Minaj and her brother are very close. Back in August, the “Pills N Potions” artist is said to have paid $30,000 on her big bro’s wedding.
In an Instagram post from the big day, Minaj wrote, “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.”
Investigators wrote in court documents that the victim was younger than 13 and that Maraj raped the child several times. Some details in the court documents were blacked-out by a judge.
A spokesman for the district attorney’s office declined to comment on the allegations.
