Damn. This entire situation is SO disturbing.
According to court records, Nicki Minaj‘s brother Jelani Maraj has officially been indicted for allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl. While the news of the scandal first broke in December, this recent development proves a grand jury found enough evidence to charge Jelani with the crime.
The legal docs reveal on April 4 Maraj was formally indicted with felony predatory sexual assault against a child, along with felony sexual conduct against a child under age 13, and sexual conduct against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
If convicted, Nicki’s bro could face between fifteen years to life in prison.
At the current time, Jelani is free on $100,000 dollar bail thanks to his mother. It also appears that all is cool between Minaj and her big brother considering they went on a family outing shortly after the horrific news broke.
Hopefully these turn of events will make N.M. rethink her support of Jelani… things aren’t looking good for the 37-year-old at the moment.
