Late last year, we learned that Nicki Minaj’s brother Jelani Maraj was charged with raping a child. Then a few weeks ago, we reported that Maraj’s DNA matched the semen found on the 12-year-old accuser’s clothes. All in all, it’s not looking good for him.

And the bad news keeps rolling in.

According to the The Daily Mail, Maraj’s wife of just a year, filed for divorce. Jacqueline Robinson filed divorce papers in Nassau County, days before the couple would have celebrated their one-year anniversary.

Robinson, his soon-to-be ex wife, has not commented on the rape charges Maraj is facing but the divorce is labelled “Uncontested Matrimonial” meaning both parties agree to the separation and have reached an agreement on the distribution of assets and property. The case is still pending in New York court.

At the time of his arrest, Maraj argued that the young girl had him confused with another man.

This was before his DNA was found on the young girl’s pants and the victim showed signs of repeated vaginal and anal penetration.

Maraj, according to his own Twitter account, currently owns or once owned a daycare center in Queens, New York.

Maraj is due in court later this month. If convicted, he faces 15 years to life in prison.
