According to TMZ, Nicki Minaj only made the trip to jail to support her mother Carol, who testified for Maraj during the trial.

The rapper was rumoured to take to the stand and testify for her brother however she decided to stay away from the trial completely.

She has reportedly not had a close relationship with her brother since he was charged.

Meanwhile, Nicki Minaj has also been in the headlines for attempting to “break the internet” with a very racy photoshoot for Paper Magazine.
