Trinidadian born performer Nicki Minaj has bailed her elder brother out of jail, after he was charged with the rape of a 12-year-old. Jelani Manaj was charged on Long Island and was freed from Nassau County jail by his sister this week.
Nicki posted Jelani’s $100,000 bail money on Friday the 4th of December in Nassau County after Jelani was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree sexual contact against a child, she also listed two of her houses as collateral. According to investigators that were present at the time of the court hearing Jelani raped the victim several times between April and November, although this is yet to be confirmed.
Nicki has a history of spending excessive amounts on her heavily condemned brother, just three months ago she paid £30,000 towards Jelani’s wedding, which was held at Coral House in Baldwin, New York. During the wedding the ‘Super Bass’ singer shared a sentimental photograph of herself and the groom with the caption “I would cross the ocean for u. I would go and bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man. May God bless him and his union”.
At the time the picture generated hundreds of thousands of likes but the comments section has been quickly inundated with criticism directed at her and her brother, as a result of recent developments in the Manaj family.
