The older brother of singer Nicki Minaj has been accused of raping a child on Long Island.
Newsday reports, "Jelani Maraj, 37, of Baldwin, was arraigned Thursday on first-degree rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child, according to online court and jail records. The child is 12, according to the source."
He was released on $100,000 bail. Newsday says the Nassau County DA's office "declined to comment on the case, including the circumstances of the case, the age of the child and how the matter came to authorities’ attention."
Maraj recently got married. Minaj paid for the $30,000 August wedding at the Coral House in Baldwin, NY.
I would cross the ocean for u. I would go & bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man. Can't believe I cried during his wedding and his first dance like a punk. May God bless him and his union. Tonight has been one of my favorite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.
