Nicki Minaj is ready to become a witness at her brother’s child rape trial and tell those concerned that the mother of the alleged victim offered to make the charges go away if the rapper handed over $25million.
A lawyer for Minaj’s 38-year-old brother, Jelani Maraj, told jurors at Nassau County Court in New York on Thursday that the rape charges against his client were all part of an elaborate plot to extort money from Nicki.
Maraj is accused of raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter multiple times in 2015 soon after he married her mother Jacqueline Robinson.
It is not clear when Minaj will take to the stand but she will be the defense’s star witness.
