may not come as a surprise, but Minaj has had a tumultuous relationship with
her father as he was a drug addict who was abusive toward her throughout her
childhood. In several past interviews, Minaj has spoken quite openly about her
traumatic past and accused her father of tormenting her as well as her mother.
In fact, in 2018, the artist ended up getting emotional while describing how
she had to physically protect her mother from her abusive father.
it seems as though the rapper had made peace with her father in the last few
months. She also made sure that she credited her mother for keeping the family
together and doing her best to give her a good life. Minaj now aims to give her
mother, Carole Minaj, a worthy life and offer her as much care as possible.
2010, Minaj spoke to Rolling Stones about her family life. She said: “When I first came to America, I
would go in my room and kneel down at the foot of my bed and pray that God
would make me rich so that I could take care of my mother. Because I always
felt like if I took care of my mother, my mother wouldn’t have to stay with my
father, and he was the one at the time that was bringing us pain. We didn’t
want him around at all, and so I always felt like being rich would cure everything,
and that was always what drove me.”

that Carole Minaj was still inside. This basically summarizes how he treated

She not only got married and had her first child with husband, Kenneth Petty,
but also assured her fans how happy she is with the newfound motherhood.
it seems as if her happiness is short-lived as her brother Jelani Maraj was
recently given a life sentence for raping an 11-year-old child. And now her
father, Robert Maraj’s death, in a hit-and-run case is just another addition to
the trauma. We hope that the recent turn of events don’t push her further down.
