Nicki Minaj is her brother’s keeper. The rap superstar’s 37-year-old sibling was charged with raping a 12-year-old girl this week and was quickly freed on $100,000 bail. Now it’s being reported that bail was paid for by Nicki herself.

New York Post reports the “Pound The Alarm” rapper put two of her Long Island homes up as collateral so she can keep brother Jelani Maraj away from jail pending trial. The website says while the homes are in Nicki’s name, they’re actually occupied by Jelani, and mother Carol Maraj. A source tells the paper “Nicki was prepared to do anything for her brother.”

Meanwhile, Nicki may want to stay off social media if she can’t deal with people calling her brother a pedophile. The rapper who once tweeted “people who abuse children should be stoned to death in public” is getting some serious backlash for paying her brother’s bail.
