Nicki Minaj will be a star witness at her brother’s child rape trial

Nicki Minaj is set to take the stand at her brother’s child rape trial and tell jurors that the mother of the alleged victim offered to make the charges disappear if the rapper handed over $25million.


An attorney for Minaj’s 38-year-old brother, Jelani Maraj, told jurors at Nassau County Court in New York on Thursday that the rape charges against his client were all part of an elaborate plot to extort money from Nicki.

Maraj is accused of raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter multiple times in 2015 soon after he married her mother Jacqueline Robinson.


During the opening arguments on Thursday, Maraj’s attorney David Schwartz told jurors that Robinson hatched a plan to marry the accused so she could try and get money out of his famous sister.

He added that Robinson forced the alleged victim and her younger brother to lie to authorities about the rape allegations as part of her extortion plan.


Schwartz said Robinson allegedly told Minaj: ‘I can make the charges go away for $25million.’
It is not clear when Minaj will take to the stand but she will be the defense’s star witness, according to TMZ.


Prosecutors, however, gave harrowing details of the alleged sexual abuse during their opening arguments, saying Maraj raped the sixth-grader as often as four times a week for eight months.
