Nicki Minaj's older brother Jelani Maraj has been arrested on charges of first-degree rape and first-degree course of sexual conduct against a 12-year-old child, reports Newsday.

Maraj, 37, got married in August. He has a good relationship with his famous sister. She has posted pictures with him to her Instagram page and mentioned him in the song “All Things Go" -- “And I know Jelani will always love me and I’ll always love him / And I’m just his little sister, not Nicki Minaj when I’m around him.”

Maraj was arraigned Thursday and released the same day on $100,000 bail from East Meadow’s Nassau County jail on Thursday.
