Nicki Minaj has paid a $100,000 bond to get her brother Jelani Maraj released from custody in Nassau County, New York, the New York Post's Page Six reported Saturday.
Earlier this week, Maraj, 37, was charged with first-degree rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct with a child, according to Nassau First District Court documents. The "Anaconda" rapper used two of her homes (one where her brother lives, the other where her mother lives) in New York to back up the bond, Page Six reported.
"She was prepared to do anything for her brother," a source told the news outlet.
Minaj and her brother are very close. Back in August, the "Pills N Potions" artist is said to have paid $30,000 on her big bro's wedding.
In an Instagram post from the big day, Minaj wrote, "I would cross the ocean for u. I would go & bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man."
A rep for Minaj did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
