Nicki Minaj has been in the news a lot. In fact, she was trendy high all weekend. Perhaps it is because the Barbs are all in a tizzy over Mr. and Mrs. Petty getting into a public shouting match with Meek Mill or it could be there might be some music.

Well, she is about to trend something crazy today. And it has nothing really to do with her. Her brother is back in the headlines.

Her brother, Jelani Maraj, was sentenced on Monday to 25 years to life by Judge Robert McDonald in a New York court. According to TMZ, the sentencing took some time since the verdict about him being found guilty of predatory sexual assault against a child and endangering the welfare of a child was made a few months back.


Nicki Minaj has not supported her brother. In 2017, she visited him while he was locked up, but told the press that her only reason for going was to stand with her mother. She also never came to his defense which directly contradicts what his defense team asserted at the beginning of the trial.

No word from Nicki where she stands now, but it is safe to assume she is still keeping her distance.
