Driver who allegedly killed Nicki Minaj’s father turns himself into police. It is confirmed that the suspected hit-and-run driver who killed Nicki Minaj‘s father turned himself in to law enforcement.
At 6:15 p.m., Robert Maraj, 64, was struck by a car that kept driving in Mineola, Long Island.Last Friday, he was taken to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead on Saturday, according to a spokeswoman for the Nassau County Police Department.
The suspected hit-and-run driver turned himself over to the police on Wednesday morning, according to Page Six.
Nicki, 38, who was born in Trinidad and Tobago and raised in New York City’s Queens borough, has yet to publicly discuss her father’s death.
In 2010, the rapper described her dad as abusive towards her mother, telling Rolling Stone that, with her mother inside, he once set fire to their house.
The singer said, revealing how she kept her arms up for protection, in her 2018 documentary Queen, ‘I remember when my mother would let my father be rough with her and she still tells a story from when I was a little girl and I was standing in front of my aunt.
That’s why I could be characterized by some people as abrasive or bitchy or whatever because I promised no man will ever harass me from that age, call me my name, treat me like that. And that was, suddenly, my world.
