Nicki Minaj Bails Out Brother Arrested for Assaulting a 12-Year-Old

Now for news that will make you sick to your stomach ... Nicki Minaj's brother has been arrested for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old. The singer bailed out Jelani Maraj to the tune of $100,000, after he was arrested for raping a child.


According to court documents, the 37-year-old was accused of repeatedly raping a child younger than 13 between April and November. He was arrested charges of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct against a child.

It's not known what his plea was, but he was reportedly released on $100,000 bail, which was secured by his famous sister. She apparently put two of her homes in Baldwin, New York, on the line to back the bond.

Minaj has not commented on the allegations against her brother, but she has to think he's innocent, right? This is a very serious crime, after all. Raping a child is just about one of the worst things you can do in my book, and if I ever found out that one of my brothers did something so atrocious, I sure as hell wouldn't be bailing them out of jail.

I have a 12-year-old daughter, and in no way, shape, or form could she be considered anything other than a child. The thought of anyone touching her in a suggestive manner, let along raping her repeatedly makes my blood boil.

I don't know how this kind of thing could be a misunderstanding, or a false accusation, but the idea that it actually happened is far worse to stomach. Whatever happened in this case, I hope prosecutors get to the bottom of it.
