Nicki Minaj recently lost her father – the 64-year-old father was found dead after getting struck by a hit-and-run accident. According to the police, Robert Maraj (Nicki Minaj's father) was walking on a road in Mineola in Long island— at around 6:15 PM on Friday— when he was hit by a car.

He was soon taken to the hospital and, by Saturday, he was pronounced dead. Nassau County Police has asked witnesses of the fatal accident to come forward with any information they might have.

Nicki Minaj was born in Trinidad, but was raised in New York. She has not yet come out with any statement regarding the death of her father. The investigation is still on and the police are committed to find the person who hit and fled from the scene.

It 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.

However, 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.

In 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."

In 2014, there were rumors that Robert Maraj had set fire to their family home knowing that Carole Minaj was still inside. This basically summarizes how he treated his wife.

It’s safe to say that Minaj has had quite a bumpy ride in the last couple of months. 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.

However, 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.

We love and want the fierce Nicki Minaj!
