Nicki Minaj Visits Brother For First Time Since Rape Conviction

Nicki Minaj has made his first visit to the penitentiary to lay eyes on her brother, Jelani Maraj, since he was found guilty of raping his stepdaughter. According to TMZ, Nicki hasn’t been close to Jelani since he was charged earlier this year. Sources say the only reason Nicki went to see him was because her mother insisted they go. Jelani is set to be sentenced next month and he’s facing up to 25 years in prison. Sounds like Onika doesn’t want to give the SLIGHTEST impression that she’s down with Jelani’s predatory behavior. Can’t blame her.
