Nicki Minaj may not want to say anything about her brother’s rape case, but her mom, Carol Maraj, sure is. Deets on her tell-all interview, plus check out the City Girls‘ new “Period” video and the trailer to their upcoming documentary inside…
Nicki Minaj has been radio silent about brother Jelani Maraj’s rape case. In November, the 38-year-old brother to the Young Money rapper was found GUILTY of sexually assaulting his former stepdaughter (who was 11 or 12-years-old at the time) in his Baldwin home.
The “Chun-Li” rapper hasn’t spoke about the case publicly, however, she did go visit him in jail shortly after he was convicted. In December 2015, Nicki posted Jelani’s $100,000 bond, but she never took the stand to testify on her brother’s behalf. Her mother did though.
The guilty charges carry the potential for 25 years to life in prison.
Now, Nicki’s mother Carol Maraj is seemingly gearing up to tell everyone what really went down behind-the-scenes. She hopped on Twitter to announce she’s giving an interview about the case to spill deets “they don’t want you to know.” Check it:

Looks like folks can tune in via YouTube on Saturday, August 11th at 12pm. And she listed a few other dates and times to see the interview.
What’s interesting is that her mother decides to speak now as Nicki rolls out her QUEEN album. As you know, she pushed it back for a third time and it will be released to the masses on August 17th. It was supposed to drop August 10th after it was delayed from a July 29th date.
Hmm…we don’t see this interview helping Nicki. At all.
By the way, the Queens chick is about to launch her own radio show via Apple Music called “Queens Radio.” Below are the deets:
#QueenRadio begins tomorrow @applemusic! The new dynasty begins on @beats1official tomorrow at 7pm PT/10pm ET. AND I might have something special for you too! Use the hashtag #QueenRadio on Twitter between now & tomorrow night. I’ll be conducting a live Q&A portion of my very first show. Prizes for the best comments & questions include signed albums, signed merch, tour tkts, AND plane tickets to discuss #QUEEN w|ME & other members of the magical KINGDOM. [all countries included] Good Luck‼️
We know folks would love for her to address this interview her mother is scheduling to do, but we doubt she will. Will you be tuned in tomorrow?
In other female rapper news…
Although 1/2 of the Miami rap duo City Girls is currenly incarcerated, the show must go on.
Caresha Brownlee (“Yung Miami”) is holding down the fort while her rap mate Jatavia Johnson (“JT“) serves a 2-year sentence in prison. The up-and-coming Miami rapper was previously out on bond, but she turned herself in to finish out time due to fraudulent credit card charges. She is slated to be released from prison on March 21, 2020.
Until then, Yung Miami is left to keep ish poppin’. The Miami rappers, who are featured on Drake‘s “In My Feelings,” just released a teaser to their forthcoming “Point Blank Period” documentary.
The ladies will give fans an inside look at their lavish lifestyles. Not only that, JT will dish details on why she used to scam with credits cards. We’ll see the ladies hit up the 2018 BET Awards (picture above with Remy Ma), where they put on their last performance together before JT turned herself in. We’ll also see cameos by fellow Miami raptress Trina, Cardi B, Offset, Meek Mill, Quavo, Gucci Mane, and his wife Keyshia Ka’oir.
No word just yet on when the full documentary will be released, but we’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, peep the sneak peek below:
Also, check out their newly released “Period” video below:
In other news…
JT isn’t the only one dealing with legal issues. Yung Miami has accused her baby daddy of violating a court order by harrassing, stalking and threatening her. Yikes!
The Blast reports:
Yung Miami says Jai Wiggins has been calling her on the phone and making threats over social media, allegedly threatening to snatch her hair extensions out of her head.
The former couple has a tumultuous history, that includes allegations of domestic violence. Going back to 2015, Yung Miami detailed multiple instances where Wiggins allegedly punched and yelled obscenities at her. In one case, she claims he ripped her wig off of her head during a tirade.
The last, and possibly most violent incident happened in October 2015 when Wiggins allegedly pulled Yung Miami out of a car and repeatedly punched her in the face and head. Police were called during that fight and the rapper claims she was transported to a hospital for facial injuries, which included a contusion to her eye and cuts to her lips and face.
The hip-hop star was eventually granted a longterm protective order against Wiggins, which required him to stay 500 yds away from the rapper, as well as attend a program on domestic violence prevention.
The City Girls star was also awarded sole custody of the couple’s son. Wiggins has not been able to take care of his obligations, however, and was just accused of violating the court order by failing to complete his domestic violence and parenting programs, as well as skipping out on paying his required fines.
He’ll be required to show up to a future hearing and explain the possible violations.
Sheesh! We’ll likely see her address this on the documentary as well.
