Nicki Minaj has stood by her older brother by posting his bail after he was reportedly charged for raping a 12-year-old girl, according to Page Six.

The article reveals Minaj paid $100,000 to allow Jelani Maraj to be freed from custody in Nassau County on Friday. The bond is backed by two homes that are owned by Minaj in Baldwin, a place located in Hempstead. One of the homes is used by her brother, while the other is occupied by her mother.

Minaj will be responsible for fees associated with the bond, where she’ll be required to pay six to 10 percent of the bond amount in order for it to be secured. That converts to $6,000 to $10,000.

Originally, Nassau prosecutors asked for $500,000 in order to bail him out. Minaj was willing to pay that amount by offering a letter of credit from a California bank account that has over $2 million in funds.
