Nicki Minaj’s brother Jelani has been charged with RAPE in NY
Nicki Minaj's brother Jelani Miraj has been charged in New York's Nassau County with rape.
The 37-year-old was arraigned yesterday on first-degree rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a 12-year-old child, Newsday reports.
He was shortly released from jail on a bail set at $100,000 (€92,000).
He was last seen with Nicki when the singer shared a snap on Instagram at Jelani's wedding in August. Nicki paid for the extravagant $30,000 (€27,000) wedding as well as posting a heartfelt caption with the photo of her sibling.
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 favourite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.
