Earlier this month, we told you that Nicki Minaj’s brother, Jelani Maraj, has been accused of raping a preteen. While the rapper has not publicly commented on the allegations, she’s clearly standing by her big brother’s side.

During the holidays, the 33-year-old snapped a selfie during a bowling outing with relatives—including Jelani. Shortly after the photo was posted on Instagram, the comments section was flooded with people criticizing the rapper over the photo as well as people who felt the need to defend Nicki.

As previously reported, Jelani stands accused of engaging in sexual intercourse with a 12-year-old child for several months.

“…From about April 1, 2015, until November 30, 2015, the defendant, Jelani Maraj, engaged in a course of sexual conduct against a child,” legal documents state. “He engaged in these acts with the victim while knowing (she) was less than 13 years old.”

He was released on $100,000 bond and is prohibited from coming within 100 yards of the alleged victim.
