Rapper’s brother Jelani Maraj, 38, is accused of raping his 11-year-old stepdaughter in 2015 after he married her mother Jacqueline Robinson.
Maraj’s attorney told jurors in New York on Thursday that the rape charges against his client were all part of an elaborate plot to extort money from Nicki.
Defense lawyer says Robinson planned to marry Maraj and forced her daughter to lie to police so she could try and get money from his famous sister.
Robinson allegedly told Minaj: ‘I can make the charges go away for $25million’ Prosecutors, however, told jurors that Maraj raped the sixth-grader as often as four times a week for eight months Police say they found Maraj’s semen on the groin area of the girl’s pajama pants.
Maraj’s lawyer claims Robinson planted the DNA there herself as part of the plan.
