Nicki Minaj'sbrother Jelani is facing up to LIFE in prison - as he goes on trial for allegedly raping a 12-year-old girl. But while his WIFE abandoned him - his sister hasn't. According to reports, Nicki is SUPPORTING her brother, through the rape trial.
Here's what the NY Newsday is saying:
[Jelani's] attorney, David Schwartz of Garden City, said his client — who’s facing up to life in prison if convicted of the top count — would be acquitted and was looking forward to the trial.
“These are a bunch of lies,” he said of the charges. “There’s a big, big motive to lie here which I can’t get into right now. But these are false accusations.”
Schwartz said [Nicki] Minaj was backing her brother “absolutely, 100 percent. ” He said she wouldn’t be in court Wednesday but might attend part of the trial.
