According to reports by Newsday, Maraj, 37, was arraigned on Thursday on first-degree rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child. The alleged victim is said to be 12-years-old.

It was just earlier this year that Minaj was on Instagram showering her brother with affection. While posting snapshots from his wedding, Nicki raved about her big bro.
“I love my brother so much man. Can’t believe I cried during his wedding and his first dance like a punk. May God bless him and his union. Tonight has been one of my favorite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.”
It’s been reported that the “Anaconda” rapper contributed $30,000 to her brother’s wedding.
