Unfortunately, we have learned that Nicki Minaj's father, Robert Maraj, was murdered at the age of 64 after being hit by an unidentified vehicle while walking through the streets of New York, on Friday, February 12th at around 6 PM.
Despite being taken to a local hospital, the injuries sustained in the accident ultimately determined the death of Nicki Minaj's father.
The police are currently investigating the circumstances of the accident and looking for the driver, who fled.
Nicki, who gave birth to her first child in September 2020, has not made a public statement about the event yet and it is expected that she will do so in the next few hours.
Yet social media has been flooded with messages of encouragement at this difficult time for the 38-year-old rapper.
Some colleagues in the music industry, such as Rapsody, have taken a moment to convey their condolences to her.
The truth is that the relationship of the singer of "Starships" with her father, although not bad, had its nuances.
We refer specifically to a situation of physical abuse by Mr. Robert Maraj towards the rapper's mother, who on one occasion even burned her house with her mother inside.
These data were given by Minaj herself during the Queen Radio Show, that can be seen on her Instagram channel.
"I remember when my mother would let my father be violent with her and she always brings up this story about when I was a little girl and I would stand in front of my mother with my arms out to protect her"
According to Nicki these situations that she had to live as a young age are in part responsible for the strong character that she has today.
From yaay today we send a tight hug to the rapper in this difficult time.
