The news came as Maraj turned up to a Long Island courthouse to answer to the child rape charges. A stony-faced Maraj, accompanied by his mother, Carol and high-powered attorney Andrea Zellan, were in Nassau County Court’s sex crimes division for a closed door conference Wednesday.
Maraj, 37, was arrested Dec. 1 after the alleged 12-year-old victim revealed he’d been abusing her since April. Maraj has been charged with felony sexual conduct against a child in the first degree, and first degree rape, also a felony. If he’s convicted, he faces up to 50 years in prison.
Other news sites reported that Nicki herself posted her brother’s bail, but court papers obtained by BOSSIP show that it was their mother, Carol, who put up her Baldwin, N.Y. home along with two $50,000 promissary notes. A judge signed an order of protection, and Maraj must stay at least 100 yards away from the alleged victim and surrender any weapons. Interestingly, he lists his occupation on his bail paperwork as an employee of “Pink Personality Inc.” one of Nicki Minaj’s companies.
Outside court, Maraj ignored questions from a BOSSIP reporter while his mother admitted she wanted to beat up the press.
“I’d like to kick their butts,” Mama Minaj said as her son helped her into a waiting SUV.
Maraj is due back in court next month.
