This is stomach-turning
Fans were devastated to learn earlier this year that Nicki Minaj’s older brother, Jelani Maraj, was arrested on child rape charges. While the female MC has stayed mum on the entire situation, fans have still had access to information in the case, and things aren’t looking good on his end. Now, more updates are coming to light, and there is a high chance that Jelani could be doing some hard time in prison.
Jelani Maraj is being convicted of child rape charges
The brother of the Young Money signee was arrested after a 12-year-old girl accused him of molesting her multiple times between the course of April 2015 and November 2015. Police reportedly took Maraj into custody just after the last incident occurred, where they charged him and investigated the case.
BOSSIP learned that his DNA matches the semen found on his accuser
The Nassau County District Attorney’s Office is reportedly saying that the semen found on the minor was consistent with Maraj’s DNA, which is enough for them to offer him a hefty plea deal. The D.A. is offering Maraj 15 years to life at this time, but we’ll have to see if he decides to take it.
Nicki has yet to speak on the case at all
This has put the rapper in a tough position, as she was previously gushing over her brother publicly on Instagram just before he was arrested and charged. She has not spoken on her brother, nor has she addressed the topic in any way publicly.
