Nicki Minaj older brother Jelani Maraj is in some serious legal trouble after he was arrested and charged with first degree rape.
Maraj, 37, was arrested last week Tuesday and had to be taken to the hospital for an undisclosed medical condition. Nicki Minaj later posted a $100,000 bail for him.
The PageSix reported that Minaj bonded out her brother Jelani Maraj out of the Nassau County in New York on Friday. Two homes in Baldwin belonging to the “Only” rapper were used as collateral for the bond. She is also responsible for the 6-10% fees associated with securing a bond.
Prosecutors in the case initially asked the judge to set bail at $500,000 and Minaj was prepared to cough up a letter of credit for a bank account in California worth $2 million.
Investigators state in their court documents that Jelani Maraj raped a child younger than 13 several times between April and November of this year. He was slapped with first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct against a child.
No word yet on when he will return to court or his plea.
