Nicki Minaj’s brother’s wife has filed for divorce days before their one year anniversary as he faces court trial for raping a 12 year old girl in Long Island, New York. Jelani Maraj, 37, on August 18 was given divorce papers from his wife, Jacqueline Robinson, who he’s been married to for just one year.
Jelani was arrested last December and charged with felony rape charges including first-degree course of sexual conduct against a child and predatory sexual assault in Nassau County, New York, and faces 15 years to life in prison if he is convicted.
When Jelanie married in August 2015, his $30,000 wedding was funded by his superstar sister Nicki Minaj and when he was arrested in December 2015, Minaj, 33, posted his $100,000 bond.
The divorce between Jelanie and Jacqueline is labeled ‘Uncontested Matrimonial’, meaning both parties have agreed to divorce and have already reached an agreement over the division of their assets and property.
His next court appearance will be in September.
