The recently married brother of rapper Nicki Minaj has been charged with raping a child on Long Island, the Daily News has learned.
Jelani Maraj, 37, was arraigned Thursday on a first-degree rape charge and freed from a Nassau County jail on $100,000 bail, sources said.
Nassau County prosecutors say Maraj engaged in intercourse with a child under the age of 13 at 6:30 p.m. on Nov. 30.
Newsday reported that Maraj’s victim was a 12-year-old girl.
His wife, Jaqueline Maraj ignored questions as she left her home with a young boy and hopped in a maroon minivan.
Maraj is due back in court on Dec. 9.
In a creepy twist, among the “likes” listed on a Twitter page belonging to a Jelani Maraj is a news story about William James Vahey, a child predator who killed himself in March 2014.
