Nicki Minaj’s older brother, Jelani Minaj has been accused of raping a child younger than 13 on several occasions in between the months of April and November. This was written in the court documents from the investigators. A Nassau County Court official said. He was arrested on Tuesday but suffered an unknown medical condition that required him to be arraigned two days later at Nassau University Medical Center.
According to the New York Post, Jelani Minaj was released from Nassau County Court on Friday after his sister put up $100,000 bond. The bond is guaranteed by two homes owned by the rapper, 32, in Baldwin, New York – one that is home to her mother and the other that is used by her brother.
Nicki has yet to comment on her brother’s arrest or on the reports that she bailed him out of jail for $100,000. This is not the first time she’s had his back. Back in August, she reportedly footed the bill for his wedding to long-time girlfriend Jacqueline Robinson.
“Jelani, I love u more than you’ll ever comprehend,” Nicki captioned an Instagram photo at the time. “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.”
Court papers obtained by the New York Post revealed that Maraj was “charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct” against the minor. The Mail Online report states that the victim’s gender is not mentioned or has not been revealed yet. Nor has the rape been declared or whereabouts it actually happened. The report added that each of the charges filed against Minaj’s brother carries a sentence of nine to 25 years in prison.
