Just four months ago, Nicki Minaj was celebrating her brother Jelani Maraj as he wed his longtime girlfriend, Jacqueline Robinson. Now, he’s been arrested and charged with raping a 12-year-old!
Nicki showed her love for the 37-year-old on Instagram during his wedding celebration, and even gave $30,000 towards the event.
