Nicki Minaj to Testify at Brother’s Child Rape Trial in NYC
Nicki Minaj will testify at her brother, Jelanli Maraj's, child rape trial, where according to TMZ, she's expected to tell jurors that the mother of the alleged victim attempted to extort her for millions.
According to the site, Nicki will be the star witness at the trial in New York City, where Maraj stands accused of raping his then 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015. The opening arguments began Thursday (Oct. 19), where Maraj's defense attorney, David Schwartz told jurors his client's ex wife, Jacqueline Robinson, forced her children to lie to authorities in an attempt to get $25 million out of Nicki. He also said Robinson planned to marry Maraj only because she wanted to extort Nicki.
"I can make the charges go away for $25 million," Robinson alleged told Nicki.
It's unclear when Nicki will take the stand.
