Nicki Minaj’s older brother, Jelani Maraj, has been charged with first degree rape.
According to Newsday, recently married Maraj allegedly raped a 12-year-old .
The 32-year-old Anaconda rapper is close to her brother and even paid $30k to help pay for his wedding to Jacqueline Robinson back in August.
Maraj was arraigned Thursday on Long Island, NY, 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.
Writing on her Instagram, next to a photo of her standing next to her brother at the time of his wedding, Minaj said:
“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.”
