A 10-year-old testified in court Monday that he witnessed his 11-year-old sister being raped by Nicki Minaj’s brother.
Jelani Miraj is on trial for repeatedly raping his 11-year-old then-step-daughter, Page Six reports.
The boy testified that he saw his sister being raped by Miraj in 2015 in a basement bedroom of the home they lived in.
“What happened was I was looking for [her]. My pencil broke and I didn’t have any others.”
He said he saw his sister’s pants “around her ankles,” and Miraj’s “underwear close to his knees.”
“I thought it wasn’t right. It looked weird to me, so I ran upstairs.”
The 10-year-old said Miraj later found him and asked him if he saw anything. When he said yes, Miraj slapped the boy “about 10 times” in the face. He then threatened that the boy would never see his mother again if he spoke up.
Miraj is accused of having sex with the girl, sometimes at least four times a week. The boy said that he often woke up to his bedroom door shutting suddenly, then hearing his sister’s bed – which was in the next room over – begin to creak.
Dr. Aaron Miller testified last week, after reviewing photos, that he believes the sex did occur.
“I can say with a reasonable degree of certainty that [the girl’s] medical exam can prove penetration.”
The defense claims that the allegations are made up by Robinson – the children’s mother and Miraj’s ex-wife – and are part of a $25 million extortion plot against Minaj, who will testify on her brother’s behalf.
David Schwartz, Miraj’s lawyer, argued that Robinson is forcing her children to lie about the rape.
“Why would [Robinson] lie and force her children to lie? I can give you 25 million reasons why.”
