Nicki Minaj’s mum files $150m lawsuit against man accused of killing her husband


The mother of Trinidadian-born rapper, Nicki Minaj, has moved to file a $150 million lawsuit against a man identified as Charles Polevich, 70, who is accused of killing Minaj’s father in a hit-and-run crash last month.

The suit filed by Carol Maraj, the mother of Nicki Minaj, was confirmed on Monday by her counsel claims Polevich was negligent, reckless and careless when he hit Robert Maraj with his car and allegedly left him at the scene.

According to Carol Maraj’s lawsuit filed before the Nassau county state supreme court earlier this month, accused Polevich of striking Robert Maraj, 64, on Long Island on February 12 and driving off without calling 911. The rapper’s father died at a hospital the next day.

“He was not only irresponsible and negligent but more concerned about running away and hiding than seeking help,” Benjamin Crump, the attorney known for his work on civil rights cases and with families of victims of police brutality, representing Carol Maraj, said in an Instagram.

Polevich’s attorney, listed in online court records as Marc Gann of Mineola, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
