This is a sheer demonstration of the saying that 'blood is thicker than water'.
Nicki Minaj is standing by her big brother — posting his bail after he has been charged with raping a 12-year-old, The Post has learned.
Court papers reveal the superstar singer put up the $100,000 bond that sprang Jelani Maraj, 37, from custody in Nassau County on Friday after he was accused of first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct against the preteen.
The bond is backed by a two homes in Baldwin that are owned by Minaj — one of which is used by her brother and the other by her mother, Carol.
“She was prepared to do anything for her brother,” a source said of Minaj.
Minaj will be responsible for the fees associated with securing the the bond, typically 6 percent to 10 percent of the bond amount, or $6,000 to $10,000.(s:Laura Italiano)
