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

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.

Watch the conversation (above) and share your thoughts (below).

Nicki Minaj WON’T Be Testifying In Brother’s Child Rape Trial

Nicki Minaj is distancing herself.

Despite previous reports, it sounds like Nicki Minaj will NOT be supporting her brother in his rape trial.

In case you haven't been keeping up, Jelani Maraj is in court for the alleged rape of his preteen stepdaughter during his marriage to Jacqueline Robinson. His lawyer David Schwartz claimed the rapper would testify that his ex-wife told her she could "make the charges go away for $25 million."

Except according to TMZ, Nicki is staying the hell away from her brother's controversial case!

Their sources say she never planned to be involved, and won't be in the future.

That's probably in her best interest, considering the victim's 10-year-old brother testified to witnessing the rape.

Nicki Minaj has her brother's back — despite the monstrous things of which he's being accused.

In case you hadn't heard, Jelani Maraj is on trial for the rape of his preteen stepdaughter, and now it seems the defense's case rests on discrediting the accusers.

During opening statements on Thursday, Maraj's attorney David Schwartz explained to jurors their version of events — Jacqueline Robinson married Jelani as part of a long con to get to his sister's money. She then forced her children to lie to police about the rape.

Nicki Minaj's Brother's Lawyer Calls DNA Evidence In Child Rape Case 'Meaningless' — WHAT??

nicki minaj brother rape case

Nicki Minaj's brother may want to get another lawyer.

Why? Well, because, the defense strategy the legal expert is using in Jelani Maraj's child rape case is kind of bananas.

As you may recall, the Anaconda rapper's flesh-and-blood is standing trial for allegedly raping and sodomizing a 12-year-old girl between April and November 2015. To make matters worse, Jelani's semen was found on the tween accuser's pants.
