Nicki Minaj's Mom Speaks Out On Her Son Jelani's Child Rape Conviction

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooLegal MattersNicki MinajFamilyDysfunctional FamiliesControversy

We have the latest from Nicki Minaj's mom.

Carol Maraj sat down with Charles Fisher of The Hip Hop 'Hood Report' to discuss her son Jelani Maraj's child rape conviction.

If you need a quick refresher, he was convicted in 2017 for predatory sexual assault of his then 11-year-old stepdaughter. The Queen rapper's sibling is facing 25 years to life in prison, but his mother and legal team are still working to clear Maraj's name.

Nicki's mother is extremely candid in the lengthy interview (above), and believes several instances of jury misconduct played a factor in the 39-year-old's trial.

Carol claims that the prosecutors used "inconclusive DNA evidence", called the case a "witch hunt," and says that jurors were negatively influenced by her daughter's celebrity and notable absence from the trial.

The Pinkprint star's mother also reveals an alternate juror's claims that her son would be a free man because there was no real evidence against him. The juror was turned away from the case and spoke out to the press after the fact.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman says it's downright "uncomfortable to watch" the duo when they're together!

In her new book, Unhinged: An Insider's Account of the Trump White House, the former White House staffer wrote that she believes the president "covets" Ivanka and that their relationship crosses the line of appropriate father-daughter behavior.

And now, for the first time, we are really starting to understand that recent relapse and what caused it: Luann's first husband, Count Alexandre de Lesseps, sued her over the breach of their divorce settlement centering on whether or not she could sell an $8 million home in the Hamptons.

Luann had long wanted to move to upstate New York for more privacy, and when the lawsuit came down, she was so stressed and anxious about it, she relapsed.

She told Kelly:

A source told E! News:

"She will be in rehab for several months and is doing an extensive program to ensure she gets the help she needs."
