Robert Maraj, Nicki Minaj's 64-year-old father, died on Friday after being hit by a hit-and-run hit. The man, who the first reconstructions place in Long Island, New York, in the Mineola neighborhood, would have been hit by a speeding car. The witnesses would therefore have called for help, but the imminent arrival of an ambulance would not have been enough to save the life of Maraj, whose son, Jelani, is serving 25 years in prison for the rape of a child.
Nicki Minaj, a recent mother, has not released any comment on the affair, but a spokesperson has confirmed Maraj's death. According to the TMZ website, witnesses to the accident were unable to provide an accurate description of the vehicle or person behind the wheel of the pirate car.
