This just makes an already awful situation that much worse.
We were devastated to report yesterday that Nicki Minaj's cousin, Nicholas Telemaque, was murdered early Monday morning in Brooklyn, NY, after he left the C-PAC nightclub with his friends, and according to his cousin, Carol Clarke, he may have been shot because of a mistaken identity!
“He was shot in the chest as he walked towards his car close to his home. Nicki is absolutely devastated as are all our family - she was very close to her cousin but now he has gone. She has reached-out to Nicholas’ mom Victoria to offer her words of comfort but she is too distraught. Nicholas was a quiet person but he could be the life and soul of the party too - he did not run with gangs or anything like that. His friends have told us there wasn’t any trouble that night and we believe it could have been a case of mistaken identity but the police are still investigating the case. We are still trying to make arrangements for his funeral but I will really miss him because he was a good person.”
Unfortunately, we have no way of knowing what actually went down, but we sincerely hope that whomever was responsible is caught soon, and punished accordingly!
Our thoughts continue to stay with Nicholas' family, friends, and loved ones during this time.
May he R.I.P.
