[BREAKING] Young Victim Testifies In Nicki Minaj Brother’s Rape Case
Jelani Maraj’s former stepdaughter shares horrifying details about the alleged sexual abuse in her testimony.
On Monday, Jelani Maraj’s rape trial entered it’s third week, with the 13 year old victim giving a chilling account of the numerous times that Maraj allegedly raped her. Maraj’s stepdaughter, who was 11 years old when the sexual abuse first began, took the stand in a Nassau County courtroom and revealed that Maraj threatened to take away her mother and his ex-wife, Jacqueline Robinson, if she didn’t comply with his rules.
According to the young girl, Maraj would rub his erection on her before raping her “in his bedroom, in my bedroom, in the basement.” She went onto to explain how Maraj instructed her on how to make anal sex less painful, “He used lubricant and told me to breathe properly and not to clench so it wouldn’t hurt so much. It hurt. I told him to stop and tried to push him away.”
The abuse escalated one morning when the victim went to Maraj’s room to greet him, “It was a Saturday morning. I had went to him to go say “good morning”. I had hugged him as usual. I went to go lie next to him as I usually do. When I did that, he told me to go close the door. He told me to take off my pants. Then he told me to come under the covers with him and he started caressing me.”
The victim stated, “He would call me his puppet and [say] I had no say in what he did to me.” She also said Maraj would ejaculate in her mouth.
Evidence has shown that Maraj’s DNA was found on a pair of the victims underwear. Last week, a doctor called to the stand by the prosecution testified that the victim’s medical exams showed tears that were consistent with penetration.
Apparently, the victim’s eight year old brother walked in during one of the attacks. The victim “was on her forearms on the bed with her pants pulled down.” The young girl said she told her brother not to talk about it because she was scared that they would be “sent away.”
Maraj’s lawyer, David Schwartz, says the alleged abuse was made up in an attempt to extort $25 million from Nicki Minaj.
Maraj has been charged with predatory sex assault against a child, 2 felony counts of sexual conduct against a child in the first and second degrees, and endangering the welfare of a child.
He is facing life in prison if convicted.
