Mother of Nicki Minaj Sues Man Who Killed Rapper’s Father in Hit and Run
Nicki Minaj

After taking a brief hiatus from social media, Nicki Minaj is reconnecting with fans in a meaningful way. Following her IG Live session last night, the singer penned an emotional letter to her supporters, where she addressed the untimely passing of her father, her addiction to The Crown, and her pregnancy cravings.

Nicki Minaj’s 64-year-old father, Robert Maraj, was killed in a hit and run incident in Long Island on February 12. The killer, 70-year-old Charles Polevich, later turned himself in to the police and has been charged with leaving the scene of an incident and tampering with physical evidence. Nicki had not spoken about her father’s death publicly, making her statement in the letter even more poignant. Nicki, who is clearly still heartbroken, wrote, “Tho I can’t really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life. I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved & will be very missed.”

The singer later addressed the death of rapper DMX, sending love and light to his family. Nicki Minaj said, “The passing of DMX hit me like a ton of bricks. Losing him felt like losing someone I grew up with. I adored him. Blessings to his family.”

On a lighter note, the letter posted on her website gave an update on how the rapper has been occupying her time lately. The letter further reads, “My darlings, as I complete this album & documentary, I am also obsessing over “The Crown” on Netflix. The great Kenya Barris recommended I watch it & I’ve been hooked ever since. It’s safe to say I’ve watched every single episode of every single season at least 5 times each. Lol. Yikes. I know.”

Nicki Minaj went on to give major props to the actors in the Netflix production, saying, “I can’t get enough of Claire Foy’s perfect face. I want to eat it. It just does the right thing in every single scene. Lmao. I also can’t believe how much I enjoy Gillian Anderson’s portrayal of Margaret Thatcher. Seeing as tho I’m such a Meryl StreepINISTA. I love Helena as Princess Margaret & Josh as Prince Charles, although let’s face it; he’s a tad hunkier than the real Prince ever was— and yes, I just used the word “hunkier”. Olivia Colman as the later Queen… she’s a great actress. I actually enjoyed her portrayal of Mrs. Thatcher’s daughter in the IRON LADY even more than I enjoy her in this role! Go figure. BRAVO to the entire cast, writers & directors.”

During her hiatus, Nicki also caught up on Netflix’s “Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom” and had nothing but positives to share about the acclaimed work.

The rapper wrote, “While we’re on the subject of acting, Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom was one of the best pieces of work I’ve had the pleasure of viewing in a really long time. GENIUS!!!! With a capital everything!!!! Just when I thought there was no way I could love Viola Davis any more… I MEAN!!!!! OMG. I LIVE!!!! Every single monologue. Every single one. She brought those words to life in such a way that I truly felt as if she could’ve been speaking about the music industry right now! The writing in the original play was just brilliant but she was able to even add a billion times more to it & I didn’t think that was even possible b/c August Wilson is the TRUTH!!!”

She had praises for the recently deceased Chadwick Boseman who played Levee Green in the movie. Nicki said, “Chadwick, of course, was just exceptionally layered & riveting. His acting knows no bounds. I can’t believe he was taken from us so soon. The man was on his way to becoming a full-fledged ICON!!! I also really loved the actor playing “Cutler”. Colman Domingo.”

On a happier note, Nicki addressed her pregnancy and the latest addition to her family. The “Super Bass” singer gave birth to a baby boy last September. On the topic of pregnancy and weird cravings, Nicki told fans, “FUN FACT: since becoming pregnant I can’t stop eating ice. I’m now up to about 20 cups per day. I eat them out of the red plastic cups. The cups must always be stacked in two. “Double cup love, you the one I lean on”. Lol. It simply doesn’t taste right when I eat it out of one lil flimsy cup.”

She shared that her son has brought her joy and fulfillment while giving fans a look into the developing personality of her little boy, who she fondly calls “Papa Bear.”

“I’ve also been completely overwhelmed with joy & fulfillment in the world of Papa Bear. Each day creates a new & fascinating, magical memory that I hide far away into a little cute compartment of my heart; vowing never to forget any of it. Like. He’s just a cute liddo marshmallow. I can’t take it. His favorite movie is Madagascar (Escape 2 Africa) he won’t stop watching it. LOL,” she commented.

She continued, “He’s so smart, funny, sweet, competitive… it’s kind of crazy how they have a full personality so early on. Yesterday I made him say mama. Even got it on video. Just… Wow.”

The obviously proud mom went on to express her anticipation about releasing her new projects while offering some cryptic advice to her fans.

She closed out the letter saying, “I can’t wait to share these new vibez wit yall. It’s so important to always go back to basics for me. This world of smoke & mirrors can blind you. Be careful. Always important to step back & just really observe. “I look beyond what people sayin & I see intent. Then I just sit back & decipher what they really meant”. Still applies. But not only in what people say, but in what they do. There has to be more to this. Right?”

A few hours ago, Nicki released three new tracks that are expected to feature on her upcoming album.

“Thank you so much for fkn w|me on live yall. #BeamMeUpScotty out now. #SeeingGreen with DRAKE & LIL WAYNE out NOW?? #Fractions is out NOW?? #CrocodileTeethREMIX out NOW?? LOVE YOU,” she wrote as she promoted the new heat on her Beam Me Up Scotty project.

The track “Fractions” is currently number 23 on YouTube’s trending music list, while “Seeing Green” is number 20 on the list.

The “Crocodile Teeth” remix with Dancehall artiste Skillibeng is currently sitting at number 2 on YouTube’s local trending list.

Posted on her website, the rapper addressed the death of her father Robert Maraj, who died following a hit and run in February.

“Tho I can’t really bring myself to discuss the passing of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most devastating loss of my life. I find myself wanting to call him all the time. More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in paradise. He was very loved & will be missed,” she wrote.

The Trinidad-born rapper has been absent from social media since January.

She gave fans an insight into her life during her hiatus.

She spent a lot of time watching Netflix, particularly The Crown.

I can’t get enough of Clare Foy’s perfect face. I want to eat it. It just does the right thing in every single scene. Lmao,” she wrote.

“GENIUS!!! With a capital everything!!!” she gushed.

Giving fans a peek into her life post-pregnancy, Minaj, who gave birth to a son in September, said she can’t stop eating ice and is up to 20 cups a day.

Minaj also revealed how much she is enjoying motherhood.

“I’ve also been completely overwhelmed with joy & fulfilment in the world of Papa Bear. Each day creates a new & fascinating, magical memory that I hide far away into a little cute compartment of my heart; vowing never to forget any of it. Like, He’s just a cute liddo marshmellow, I can’t take it,” she said, revealing that his favourite movie is Madagascar (Escape 2 Africa) and that he said the word mama which she captured on camera.

Minaj fans would also be happy to know that she is working on a new album. She didn't give much details but said she can't wait to share the new vibes.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Man Who Killed Nicki Minaj's Dad Surrenders To The Cops

Carol Miraj, the mother of rapper Nicki Minaj, is suing the man charged with killing her ex-husband in a February hit and run.

We previously reported, Robert Maraj died after being struck in a hit-and-run accident last month. He was 64. Nassau County, New York police officials tell TMZ that he was walking on the road between Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue on the evening of February 12 when he was hit by a vehicle heading northbound. The driver fled the scene without calling for emergency help or aiding the victim. 

“The defendant then exited his vehicle, stood over the victim, asked him if ‘he was ok’, walked and returned to his vehicle and fled the scene,” a criminal complaint reads, per Page Six.

Maraj was taken to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries. 

Less than a week later, Charles Polevich turned himself in to authorities and was charged with killing Maraj.

Carol’s attorneys, Ben Crump and Paul J. Papoli, announced on Friday that they filed a lawsuit at the Supreme Court of the State of New York on behalf of the plaintiff, per MSN. They seek $150 million.

“Charles Polevich was not only irresponsible and negligent in hitting Robert Maraj, but he was more concerned about running away and hiding himself than in seeking help for the man he injured,” said the lawyers in a statement obtained by Law&Crime. “His behavior was criminal, cowardly and immoral. Through the filing of this lawsuit, we intend to hold Polevich responsible for his reckless actions and achieve justice for the victim’s widow.”

Polevich is charged with leaving the scene of an auto accident with a fatality, and tampering with evidence, according to the report. 

“He was absolutely aware of what happened,” Nassau County police Det. Steven Fitzpatrick said last month, according to WNYW-TV. “He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased, got into his car, and made the conscious decision to leave instead of dialing 911, instead of calling an ambulance for the man. He went home and secluded the vehicle. He’s well aware of what he did.”

Nicki Minaj’s Father Robert Maraj Dead At 64 In Hit-And-Run: Reports

The hit-and-run driver who allegedly killed Nicki Minaj's dad, Robert Maraj, has turned himself in to the cops.

Charles Polevich, 70, turned himself in Wednesday morning. Polevich allegedly exited his vehicle after hitting Mr. Maraj, asked him if he was okay, before getting back in his vehicle and fleeing.

He allegedly left Nicki's dad to die and did not call the police or an ambulance.

"The defendant then exited his vehicle, stood over the victim, asked him if 'he was ok', walked and returned to his vehicle and fled the scene," the criminal complaint reads.

Nassau County Police Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick said in a press conference: "He got out of the car and he looked at the deceased and got into the car and made the conscious decision to leave. Instead of dialing 911 or calling an ambulance, he went home and secreted his vehicle." Fitzpatrick added, "We were able to track that vehicle prior to the accident as well as after the accident and tracked it right to his house."

==========================================================================================

Nicki Minaj is mourning the death of her father, Robert Maraj, who was killed in a hit-and-run.

Maraj was age 64 at the time of his death. The full details surrounding the unfortunate incident that occurred on Friday (February 12) are still unknown to the media, but sources are saying that the hit-and-run accident took placed at approximately 6 PM ET between Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue in New York. TMZ reported that Nassau County Police confirmed that the 64-year-old was walking on the road when he was struck by a vehicle that sped away from the scene without any eyewitness being able to give an accurate description.

Police are now asking anyone with details of the car or driver to come forward, but so far, they have no meaningful leads. Nicki Minaj’s father was taken to a local hospital in critical condition but has subsequently passed away from his injuries.

Nicki Minaj has yet to make a public statement about her father’s death, but sources say she and her siblings are very distraught about it. Sources close to the Trinidadian-born rapper told Urban Islandz that she and her dad had grown closer over the years even though they had a rocky relationship before becoming a huge star.
“Their relationship wasn’t always dandy but they grew closer in recent years and regularly talk and see each other even though they live on separate coasts,” the source said. “This one hit her and her brothers and mom hard. The entire family is in deep somber mood right now.”

Detectives are actively working the case to make a breakthrough and are asking the general public for help breaking the case.

R.I.P. Robert Maraj.
