(AllHipHop News) After news broke that Nicki Minaj’s 37-year-old brother Jelani Maraj was arrested in New York for raping a 12-year-old child, reports began to circulate that the superstar rapper put up bail money for her older sibling. According to Bossip, Nicki was not the person that offered funds for Jelani’s release.
The site reports:
Court papers obtained by BOSSIP show that it was their mother, Carol, who put up her Baldwin, N.Y. home along with two $50,000 [promissory] notes. A judge signed an order of protection, and Maraj must stay at least 100 yards away from the alleged victim and surrender any weapons.
Page Six previously reported the house Carol Maraj was living in was actually purchased by Nicki, and the Queens native bought a separate home that her brother used as his residence as well. The Pinkprint album creator has yet to comment publicly about Jelani Maraj’s charges or bail situation.
