Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj has been sentenced to 25 years in prison for repeatedly raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter.
Jelani who was handed his jail sentence by Judge Robert McDonald in a New York court on Monday, January 25, was found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child.
Though Nicki Minaj’s brother repeatedly denied the allegations, claiming the story was concocted to extort his famous younger sister, his stepdaughter took the stand in a 2017 trial to narrate how he raped her in their Baldwin home while he was married to her mother.
He was sentenced to 25 years in prison, two years after a jury handed down the guilty verdict for the sexual abuse which began in 2015.
