Jelani in court

I know this is not about Nicki, but damn she has to be going through it right now. Both her brother and her significant other are fighting cases, and it’s hard to remain happy when so many of your loved ones are facing some real ish!

Her brother, Jelani Maraj, appeared in a New York court yesterday with their mother Carol for a preliminary hearing to set a trial schedule for underage rape charges. Though it was previously reported that Nicki had bailed her brother out, it is now being reported that it was their mother, and that though Nicki had previously purchased the two properties that were put up for collateral, they are in her mother’s name now and it was her doing.

In happier news – could the ring that Meek gifted Nicki for her birthday this week be an engagement ring, or just some more finger bling? Hmm!
