Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj is facing rape allegations from his step daughter.
In 2015, the victim was 11 years old at the time testified earlier this week giving explicit details against Maraj.
“He would call me his puppet and told me I had no say in what he did to me,” said the girl after she stated he attacked her multiple times.
In her testimony she stated that the attacks began after the relationship between her mother and Maraj went downhill.
NY Daily News reports that “Maraj told her it had happened because she was “brushing” herself against him, she said.”
The victim now 15 years old said that her attacker kept her from after school activities like orchestra and soccer practice.
“He began to rape her anally, and hit her if she cried, she told the courtroom. Her mom was often at work and absent from the house,” stated New York Daily News.
In 2015 is when the victim’s 8 year old brother found her stepdad in the act.
If convicted Maraj could face 15 years to life in prison.
New York Daily News stated that “Maraj’s defense team has argued that his wife invented the rapes as a way to extort $25 million from his famous sister.”
