Jelani is said to have been released from police custody after posting his $100,000 bond. No one in the family has made any comments on the matter, and neither has Nicki or her team.

This is a sticky situation for Nicki.

Earlier this year, Nicki and her family attended Jelani’s wedding, where the female rapper posted tons of family photos from the event. She even sent out a very touching tribute to her brother, along with photos of the two on his wedding day.
