Nicki Minaj Visits Her Convicted Rapist Brother In Jail

Singer and actress Nicki Minaj34, has been attending to messy family business lately. Minaj’s older brother Jelani Minaj was convicted of raping his 11 year old step daughter on November 9th. His rapper sister, made a visit to Nassau County Correctional Center in East Meadow, New York where the elder Minaj is currently doing time. The singer and actress has been saying that the only reason she is showing any support for her brother is because she wants to support their mother Carol. The mother has not seen her son Jelani  since he was convicted earlier this month.

According to Jelani’s attorney, David Schwartz, they plan on aggressively filing an appeal of all charges and convictions. Minaj who has not yet been sentenced for his conviction is facing a possible 25 year to life prison sentence. The charges are that the step daughter who is now 14 stated on the witness stand that her then step father repeatedly sexually violated her when her mother was at work. The sexual abuse took place from April to November of 2015. The defense claimed that the allegations are a lie, and occurred due to the child’s mother trying to extort money from her then sister in law Nicki Minaj.

The victim’s younger brother now 10, testified that he saw his former step father Jelani expose his private parts to his sister. The brother also said that Jelani slapped him and threatened him with being given away if he ever told anyone what he saw. DNA testimony indicated that with the DNA evidence, the conclusion is that the allegations by the former step daughter are true. A scientist testified that semen found on the victims underwear was in fact Jelani’s. He said the chance of it being the defendants was a 1 in 291 billion match to Jelani Minaj.
