Nicki Minaj has shown strong loyalty in the past, and when it comes to family, the star is no different- as she preps to serve as the star witness in a child sex abuse trial against her brother, Nicki stands by her brother Jelani Maraj lawyer’s statement that the case is merely an extortion scheme.
The accuser, Jacqueline Robinson is the mother of the little girl, and reportedly told Nicki Minaj that she could just make the charges “go away for $25 million.” I mean the language seems pretty clear there, but from Page Six, Robinson claimed that Maraj and her daughter had married at the age of 11, with the little girl telling authorities that her stepfather was raping her up to four times a week.
All of this is nasty business- Assistant District Attorney Emma Slain told jurors that the young girls brother whom was 8 at the time reported to authorities the abuse. Authorities obtained a warrant and searched the house, by which they found Maraj’s DNA all over the girl’s pajama’s.
Maraj and his lawyer are claiming that this is all a complete fabrication, and that Robinson purposely put his DNA on the pajamas to be discovered by the authorities.
“Why would [Jacqueline] lie and force her children to lie? I can give you 25 million reasons why,” David Schwartz, Jelani Maraj’s lawyer told the courtroom. “Jackie became obsessed with Nicki Minaj — getting her hands on her money.” He added, “an evil Jackie targeted [Jelani]. Trying to get him to marry her, and then just four months after they were married, we have this.”
Nicki posted his $100,000 bail and has consistently supported her brother throughout this entire affair. If Nicki and her brother win this case, the internet may just owe Jelani the biggest public apology ever.
