Nicki Minaj’s Brother Receives Divorce Papers Days Before Anniversary
BY: NISHA THOMAS
Rapper Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, is now facing a divorce and his wife has decided that she wants out after almost one year of marriage, due to the fact that he is now in the midst of a felony rape case.
According to the Daily Mail, Minaj’s brother was hit with the divorce filing back on August 18th of this year, days shy of what would have been his one-year anniversary. The reason for the filing being “Uncontested Matrimonial,” indicates that the separation is agreed upon by both sides.
Maraj, 37, was given the choice to take a plea deal in his case for 15 years to life if found guilty, after being accused of allegedly assaulting a 12-year-old girl on multiple occasions.
He was given four days to make his decision.
Being indicted back in April, the suspect was arrested in December of last year and that was when reports began to circulate that Minaj had posted his $100,000 bail, however, the news was false, as it was later made clear that her mother was the one to get him out of jail.
She’d allegedly put up her house, as well as promissory notes.
Minaj attended her brothers wedding back in August of 2015 and he is now being scheduled to appear back in court this month for a conference.
Back in January fans went nuts after seeing that Minaj posted an image of herself hanging out with her brother.
“Bowling con mi familia.” The posting sparked thousands of her followers to respond in outrage.
“He needs to be locked up [bleeping] on little kids,” wrote one follower of the alleged offender. Another questioned: “Isn’t that your pedophile brother?” And yet another: “Your brother is a rapist yuckkkk.”
The pop singer has yet to respond to the situation, but many of her fans came to her defense, even with one fan posting a message, which wasn’t the most helpful but she said, “If Nicki Minaj wanna take a pic with her pedophile bro . . . then let her!! Y’all need to stfu and keep scrolling.”
So, what are your thoughts on this situation? Think Maraj is guilty?
