Jelani Maraj’s bail bond is said to have come from his sister Nicki Minaj.
Earlier this week, Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani
Maraj, was arrested for allegedly raping a 12- year-old, and while we were already aware that Maraj had made bail, Page Six now reports that the $100,000 bond was supplied by Nicki
herself. The bond is said to be supported by two of
Minaj’s homes in Baldwin. The homes belong to
Jelani himself and Nicki’s mother, Carol,
respectively. The source also reports that with the possibility
of the bail being as high as $500,000, Nicki was
preparing to share a letter of credit for a bank
account housing upwards of $2 million. Maraj currently faces charges of first-degree
rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct.
No word on when he will appear in court next.
