Queen of Hip-Hop, Nicki Minaj‘s brother reportedly appeared in court on Wednesday for a preliminary hearing on rape charges.
37 year old Jelani Maraj, was accompanied by his mother, Carol and lawyer, Andrea Zellan for the hearing to set a schedule for his upcoming trial.
The 37 year old who recently got married, is accused of raping a 12-year-old on multiple occasions. Nicki was not present but she did post bail for her brother last week.
The 32-year-old rapper put up a $100,000 bond which was guaranteed by the two homes she owns in nearby Baldwin.
