According to reports, Nicki never planned to take the stand for Jelani Maraj.
Sources close to Nicki tell TMZ … she won’t be involved in any way in Jelani Maraj’s Long Island court case, where he stands accused of raping an 11-year-old girl — his stepdaughter at the time. We’re told Minaj never planned to take the stand, and her bro’s legal team telling news outlets she was on their witness list was simply false. There were reports Nicki would testify the alleged victim’s mom tried to extort her for millions. (TMZ)
According to reports, a 10-year-old testified this week in Maraj’s case.
A 10-year-old boy who walked in on the alleged rape of his sister by the brother of rap star Nicki Minaj knew what he witnessed “wasn’t right” — but was threatened to keep his mouth shut, jurors heard Monday. He detailed what he saw in a basement bedroom in 2015 — as his family members quietly wept in the gallery. (Page Six)
Initial reports claimed Nicki would play a vital role in the publicized rape case.
Nicki will be the star witness during Jelani Maraj’s court case in NYC, where he stands accused of raping his then 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015. During opening arguments Thursday, Maraj’s defense attorney, David Schwartz, told jurors his client’s then-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, forced her children to lie to authorities in an attempt to squeeze $25 million out of Nicki.

In April 2016, Nicki’s brother received an indictment in the publicized child sexual assault case.
A grand jury has indicted Nicki Minaj’s brother on charges that he repeatedly raped a 12-year-old girl. The grand jury decided that there was enough evidence to charge newlywed Maraj – Nicki Minaj’s oldest brother and her employee – with sexually abusing the tween girl. They’d deliberated for about a month before handing down the decision April 4, according to court records. (Gossip)
