Nicki Minaj Bails Brother Out After Being Arrested For Rape Charges

While Nicki Minaj is out winning music awards, her brother is traveling a path very different from the pop star. According to a recent report from Associated Press, the “Anaconda” rapper’s brother, Jelani Maraj, was recently arrested for sexual assault charges with a teenager. Maraj has been accused of raping a minor, under the age of 13, several times between the months of April and November. He has been charged with first degree rape and first degree sexual-conduct with a child.

The 37 year old was arrested on Tuesday, but was soon transferred to Nassua University Medical Center reasons regarding an unknown medical condition. Maraj was soon released from jail after having a $100,000 bail paid. Sources have confirmed that Minaj paid her brother’s hefty bail, but the rapper has not commented on either the case or Maraj’s bail.
