Nicki Minaj‘s older brother has been accused of raping a child, according to court documents.

Jelani Maraj, 37, was charged with first-degree rape of a child younger than 13 and first-degree sexual conduct against a child in a Long Island, New York, court on Thursday.

The Nassau County Correctional Center confirmed he was released on $100,000 bond. Maraj is due back in court on Dec. 9, according to the Nassau County district attorney’s office.

The accusations come mere months after Maraj married fiancée Jacqueline Robinson in Baldwin, New York, in August. His famous sister, 32, attended the nuptials.

“I would cross the ocean for u,” Minaj captioned an Instagram photo taken at the wedding. “I would go & bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man. Can’t believe I cried during his wedding and his first dance like a punk. May God bless him and his union. Tonight has been one of my favorite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.”

Reps for Minaj did not immediately respond to request for comment.
