Nicki Minaj Jelani Maraj

Nicki Minaj will not take the stand and testify for her brother who is accused of raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015.

According to TMZ, Nicky never planned to take the stand in defense of Jelani Maraj, 38. The gossip tabloid claims Maraj’s legal team lied when they told news outlets she was on their witness list.

Maraj’s defense lawyer said Nicki would testify that the alleged victim’s mom tried to extort her for $25 million.

Nicki is very close to her older brother. She paid $30,000 for his wedding and she is footing his substantial legal bills.

But apparently she draws the line at throwing away her rap career for a pedophile — even if he is her beloved brother.

The evidence is stacked against Maraj, who was arrested in December 2015. Prosecutors say Maraj raped his now 14-year-old stepdaughter as often as 4 times a week.

The alleged victim’s 10-year-old brother testified on Monday that he walked in on Maraj raping his sister in a basement bedroom in 2015.

He described seeing his sister’s pants down “around her ankles,” and his stepfather’s underwear was “close to his knees.”

The boy said Maraj beat him and warned him not to tell what he saw.

On Thursday, a forensic expert testified that semen found on the alleged victim’s pajama bottom was “consistent” with Maraj’s.

A child abuse expert testified that the sixth-grader’s medical exam proves she was penetrated.

“I can say with a reasonable degree of certainty that (the girl’s) medical exam can prove penetration,” said Dr. Aaron Miller, who studied photos taken during an examination of the girl’s genital area.

Maraj faces 15 years to life if convicted.

    Of course she won’t, this sick fcuker needs to be in Chattahoochee,getting slow painful death meds.

  • Renee26

    She knew better than to testify in his favor… it would be career suicide. I’m still side eying her for paying his legal bills though. I’m unforgiving when it comes to hurting kids

  • sealsaa

    Figured she wouldn’t. It’s a losing situation for her. Defend your brother at the risk of calling an alleged 12 year old rape victim a liar, or don’t and let him fend for himself publicly.

    And as guilty as I believe the brother is, I believe this extortion story too. The mother needs those kids taken away from her. They deserve better.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Nikki NO YOU’RE the lie. You had every attention to SUPPORT him. What happen was YOUR label said they do not need this type of press and they will drop you. So you told your brother I’ll pay for the best ATTORNEY for you. I love the fact you’re a down sister, but SIS…at some point DUM DUM you have to stand UP and say hell NAWWWW.

    That was/is a baby. I will support my brother if he shakes the shit out of his wife, stole, robbed, lied and had a baby outside his marriage. BUT… I will not support that NINJA if he raped ANYONE/THING, hurt an elder person child/baby/minor or SCREW our mother over. Everything else I have him.

    How could you even support him? That baby girl will never be the same, men issues, trust issues, perhaps rape someone and that brother will always feel less of a man, because he will grow up to think it was his fault? Truth to be told, he’s a baby himself. This is how the GENERATION CURSE STARTS…

    I pray the mother pray hard long and help break the curse.

    I hope he gets a lot more than 15 years…

  • Noirluv45

    That sick POS!

  • Elevated Soul

    I see no reason why her team would lie on her in that way.She’s backing out because somebody convince that idiot that there is no defending a rapist,let alone a child rapist as well as an abuser of the brother who caught his azzzzzzzzzz!

  • SG

    Good call. Considering how this trial is going that wouldn’t be a good look for her.

  • SG

    Me too. He would have been on his own.

  • hottlanta

    Some websites were saying this was all a farce to get 25 million from Nicki. The whole thing is crazy.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Some men have gotten 15 years for a single rape.
    And it sounds like this dude raped this child multiple times. So he deserves life in prison, IMO.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I dont believe that for a minute.
    I dont think that boy made up that story that he told to his counselor at school. I dont believe the girl is lying. I dont believe they put that man’s semen on the girls pajamas. And even the medical examiner says the’re solid evidence of penetration.

    I think the whole $25 million-blackmail thing is a lie that people close to him are putting out there.

  • Luv Pitties

    Lethal injection is better

  • Rayne

    Yup, gone to jail.

  • Luv Pitties

    Exactly his ass would have to settle for the most mediocre court appointed attorney they had to offer

  • jazmine

    Can’t no 8 year old boy repeat the same story for almost two years that isn’t true. I don’t doubt that the mom tried to get money out of Nicki but that does not mean the girl wasn’t bothered by Jillani.

  • Ms Thang

    Regardless of the truth, people will say that she’s lying simply because they don’t like her. I never read her being quoted saying that she supports him. I seen people go as far as to say that she should stop supporting her mother to make sure she’s not paying his legal fees. Like come on.

  • Ms Thang

    People will sit in the courtroom during his whole trial and still say that she’s lying or that her team is lying, because they don’t like her.

  • NicoleZee

    She’s a sicko just like her brother. No way in hell I would support someone who rapes and molests someone, I don’t care if it was my brother or even my child, no way, you gots to get up out of my life! Disgusting. And anyone who would support sickos like him belong in the lowest pit of hell just like these rapists and molesters. They should all be executed if you ask me because they will continue to harm people if they go free. Sick and sad.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile….

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Anyone that supports a raping pedophile is guilty by association and need to be put on trial right next to his nasty arse.

    He is guilty. I believe the little boy. This rapist needs to die.

  • hottlanta

    The whole thing is a mess. That is why I can’t read what the child said I can’t take it. I didn’t Nikki could be that stupid but family have a way to try to make you feel bad if you don’t back their bad behavior and say you being boogie. Whatever.

  • hottlanta

    If that is the case you should be suspicious of every man in your life. All men are capable of doing something like that. That is how people get away with stuff because he didn’t look like a criminal. That is how some folks can go a rob a bank wearing a 3-piece suit and briefcase because they didn’t fit the typical stereotype of wearing scruffy clothes as a bank robber. We don’t know all things about people closest to us. People like him are actors they show us what they want us to know but not what we need to know.

  • Anunnaki

    They need to give men life this mental help, first, then send them on, cause I just can’t understand my grown zzz, lusting after a 14..15..18 yrs old. Smdh..

  • Faithz

    His as is going down for that dirty thing
    he did to the baby girl.

  • MookieFly

    Delete his ass and empty the recycle bin

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    The only mental help they should get is death. Pedophila is not a rehabilitative disease.

  • Seek Truth Speak Truth

    Wow OLDlanta really wrote that? I’ve blocked her so I can’t see. She really is as ignorant as I thought ?????

  • NicoleZee

    Word. I hope he gets life in prison. He’s a sick piece of shit and so is Nicki for supporting or even talking to his sorry ass. Of what I’ve seen of her family, they all look like their parents are cousins, they look too much alike, it’s creepy. Gross.

  • NicoleZee

    Exactly, this sick sorry ugly nigga is guilty as sin! But yet you got these sicko women that support sewer trash like him. A lot of these chicks know that their children are being harmed and they choose the man over the child, they need to start locking up these mothers too. I swear most people shouldn’t be able to breed. The government needs to sterilize and castrate these sickos once and for all. I couldn’t be a nurse or a doctor. I’ve heard terrible stories of how they have to examine and treat kids for child abuse and molestation. And most of the time from what some nurses have told me, the mothers sit right there and choose the man over the child while the child gets sent to foster care and his sorry ass gets sent to the jail. Deplorable.

  • Shaun M

    Prison only. A child is a child regardless and a grown man knows that is true.

  • MRiGOThim

    I believe she thought he was innocent at first til’ the DNA on dem panties came out…cut em’ loose Nicki!!!

  • hottlanta

    Blocking me. Please as if Imma cry and lose some sleep. I have a full life and it is not dependent on what you like what I said. I was just repeating on what some other website said and if I said it so want. You have truly underestimated me to think my self-esteem is based on how you like what I said.

  • Lady_Elle

    This little girl was not his first victim!
    I will bet there are some whispers about his behaviors with girls in his family!
    He was likely doing this for many, many years!

  • GuestSTAR

    Or her management told her it wouldn’t be a good move, image wise to testify on his BEHALF, when DNA CLEARLY shows he had intimate contact with this child.

  • Anunnaki

    Imo, humans are really mentally. Fcked,they don’t know how sick they are, mentally. From cooking your babies, to drowning them,this is just not natural to the earth

  • Chaseboogie The Prince

    So basically the evidence was too overwhelming and she knows he’s going to be found guilty so she’s chucking the deuces. Got it! She also read the blogs and know how people feel about her supporting this pervert and decided she would just slide out the back door. No Nicki, I can’t even listen to your music now without thinking of you or your brother. It’s a wrap.

  • Word

    Evidence can be planted…including semen on pajamas not the in the victim. ..

  • Word Life

    They wanted $$$$$$$ not a trial….hmmmmm they put the semen on the pjs

  • Bam Bam Li

    Are you stupid? The medical examination found that the little girl was penetrated. He did it, stop trying to ignore the facts that this man is a goddamn pedo smfh. He deserves to get his ass torn in jail.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Aye Sandra why I can’t block certain folks on here….. I wanna block perve supporter …. Sn …. That makeup in the photo is a damn mess… A hot mess …..

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

  • http://www.missjhaneuniverse.com Monday

    I read on NY Times that he might be getting away… They restested 6 months later and now results is changing… I mean why would you recheck 6 months later?? That is weird. Can sperm last that long?

    Nicki know from then she doesn’t need to testify

  • Keepin’IT100

    This is gonna destroy her image and give Cardi B a chance to slide in her spot.. All it takes is one f*ck up..

  • Scorpiess

    Let’s hope they rip him a new ass in jail. He can do double pen. then.

  • PRPSP

    That’s why I have NO respect for Laverne Cox when HE did that interview reading prison letters from a Trans woman saying this wanna be woman was being mistreated and the public needs to do something. The dude HE was defending was serving time for brutally murdering a little black girl. Laverne said, ”Oh I wasn’t given the facts”. My arse, you knew damn well who you were defending but didn’t expect the backlash you got so now you didn’t know!!! I have no RESPECT for that Nucca! None!

  • Sue

    Every intention* dummy. Not attention. How you trying to read Nicki with a 3rd grade education? Get your education first before you try to get anybody else in order.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Do you know IP address are easy to trace Software Developer

    #PettyBetty
    #SUE……you need to be MORE careful

  • Yoni7

    Hey lady. TWD!! Did you see it?

  • Renee26

    It can last years but after they pick away at the sample there is less and less DNA to test so the results may become inconclusive as time goes on….if he gets away with this it will be a terrible injustice

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Cardi B doesn’t have the talent to slide in that spot.
    Cardi B will go down as a 1-hit wonder. 1 1/2 if she’s lucky.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    The medical examiner determined the girl was sexually penetrated. Do you think she did that to herself?

  • Renee26

    Straight public defender and working for his own commissary while he awaits trial …I would probably send hate mail to his ass too

  • Alicia.Ashe

    His rock head azz is going to be someone’s boyfriend in jail. Hope the they rip his anus apart.

  • ShWa

    That would be good if that happened to him, nasty dog.

  • ShWa

    Probably true, not the first time he has probably messed with lil girls, need his as beat, hope he gets it real good in jail!!

  • DETROITTOATL

    I would let that NUCCA get a damn court appointed lawyer. Fawk him, as he deserves to rot in jail.

  • DETROITTOATL

    According to Safaree “Nikki is already worried about Cardi B”

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile…. You know it…. ? …. That’s my show… Came in a straight slayed ….killed damn near all they azz … Quick … Bloop!

  • Dowoop

    Exactly, why even bother footing the bill.

  • RealATLPeach36

    @Seek Truth Speak Truth AMEN AMEN.

  • RealATLPeach36

    I think he should be stoned to death.

  • HoneyyGoodMoneyy_

    Nicki is canceled in my book.

  • RealATLPeach36

    STONED

  • Dowoop

    **How are you trying to read Nicki with a 3rd grade education? I corrected that for you. 🙂

  • Yoni7

    Yasss! I love it! Sad for Gabriel, tho’.

  • Keepin’IT100

    Wouldn’t it be hilarious if Cardi linked up with Safaree business wise or personal..

  • Keepin’IT100

    It’s not about talent.. It’s about the ability to sale the image that “The Man” wants to be sold to society.

  • Look@m3

    RIght cause I’m so sick of it! I’m not even a Nicki fan but I’m like at least she can sing and rap…You cant take that away from Nicki. Yeah, I’m over Cardi and I’m tired of hearing about her and ganggang ro whatever that mean.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Wow… I guess money and finagling the evidence can get a guilty mofo off…

  • Quitedeliteful

    Now this would be a fitting punishment… Place him in the city’s football or baseball stadium and give out free tickets and hotdogs to all who want to come watch…

  • Quitedeliteful

    With a marching band and entertainment first….

  • Quitedeliteful

    You may love a family member to the moon and back but there are times when you just can’t stand with them. I know she’s praying to her God that her brother didn’t do this but the evidence against him is overwhelming. Oh well… if she wants to help her brother out she can keep money on his account so that he can buy Little Debbies…

  • Pamela

    Castrated first.

  • Karen Brady

    I’ll bet she’s not. She can’t be that stupid to risk her black fan base like that.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I know SMH and then took his car… Lawd

  • Tennessean

    She shouldn’t have gotten involved. They said the evidence is clear. Maybe she thought her fame and money was ENOUGH. Attorneys was about to get 35 of her 70 mil…that just to keep him from doing life…he is about do all 30 of them years.

  • Yoni7

    GIRL! LOL

  • Miss K

    I’m using that line!!!!

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Chile …. I said well damn…. Ain’t this some shyt … Trying to save his azz and got….. Got ! ???

  • Yoni7

    But that can be expected from the “Good Doctor”. Then again, Gabriel never got dealt with back when they first got to Alexandria and Maggie heard him talking sh!t about Rick’nem to Diane. You remember that? I’m like slavery, I’ll never forget.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    I do think this may change his character more if he don’t get killed off… Hopefully they wont kill him off too soon lol

  • Kayke

    Women rape too…so everyone, not every man.

  • Yoni7

    I hope so too. Wonder what Neegan has in store for him.

  • hottlanta

    You are so right that was very sexist of me thinking that only a man can be a rapist.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Negan is a hot mess ROFL… Dude be having me laughing sometimes ??

  • Yoni7

    He’s such an ass and I love it. LOL

  • SDot

    Don’t matter Idiot you already financed his wedding and lawyers ETC!
    Ya money is testifying.
    She’s dumb! I can’t with that family.

  • V Dubb

    Folks in here talking about her giving her brother the benefit of the doubt like yall don’t have f’d up parents….well that’s if you even know who they are. Walking around with slaw families and passing judgment. Shut up. Hope he gets what he deserves and those AFFECTED are given the help they need to move on.

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Girl same here ?

  • V Dubb

    I KNEW you would be one of the only nonjudgmental mfs in here friend! Folks were out here with giving Eddie long the benefit of the doubt and fighting for him but trying to jail her for something her brother did….she changed her mind meaning she probably got more evidence.

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yup!!! You can’t blame her for initially rocking with her brother because who can even wrap their mind around the fact that someone that they love dearly is a creepy pedophile?!?!? Your’e right — she changed her mind based on the overwhelming evidence. She can’t be blamed for his sins or for not believing it in the beginning…

  • Sue

    No sweetie. When I address hoodrats I speak Ebonics. That’s all they know. Now uncorrect your life!

  • Allihave2say

    Icki Nicki won’t testify because the prosecution will ask her if her brother ever molested or raped her. She must keep the secrets of the cause of her deviance.

  • Dr.Rue

    Damn pervert should be given the death sentence.

  • MRiGOThim

    Mmmm…they could have, but u have to be careful as a celeb especially when everyone is after that “MEAN GREEN”

  • MRiGOThim

    True or was it all for money?!!!

  • V Dubb

    All.of.that!!!

  • Dowoop

    If that’s all they know then why are you correcting it then? Who “uncorrects”
    their life…is that even a word? LMAO….Nice try though!

  • RealATLPeach36

    Thanks….I told the heffa about the IP addresses. I wasn’t trying to read her, hell if Nikki was reading this I would tell her AT SOME POINT YOU HAVE TO SAY NO! But that SUE…she doesn’t know any better, with her chubby self…(internet is amazing at times)

  • RealATLPeach36

    It seem like that would be Life, or death. I only say this because of the lasting effects it will have on both children. Even after seeking help, I’m sure there will be some problematic issues.

  • RealATLPeach36

    Not only a serial rapist..
    It’s a child involved
    Taken away her purity
    Abused the brother physically and mentally

  • Youngblood

    I Truly believe he did the same thing to her, when they were growing up you can just tell by her stand offish attuide that she’s been touched .And iam sure this crime was not shocking to her because when your as close as brothers n sisters are someone can say something about one of your brother or sister and you can tell if that’s far from there charter or I no he did that that seems like something he would do, And that’s because you no the person so well.
