The best thing about having money? Sharing it with those you love! Nicki Minaj reportedly did just that for her older brother, Jelani Maraj, splashing out $30,000 for his wedding. The “Feeling Myself” singer looked ecstatic as her sibling tied the knot with Jacqueline Robinson in New York on Saturday (Aug. 22).
The proud sister shared a number of photos from her brother’s big day on Instagram, including a sweet snap of herself and Jelani hugging, adding the caption: “Jelani, I love u more than you’ll ever comprehend.”
Posting another snap of them together, she wrote: “I would cross the ocean for u. I would go & bring u the moon. Promise u. For u I will. I love my brother so much man.
“Can’t believe I cried during his wedding and his first dance like a punk. May God bless him and his union. Tonight has been one of my favorite nights of all time. I do anything to see my brothers smile.”
The 32-year-old shared a number of other family photos with her 32.3 million Instagram followers, including pictures with her mum, aunt and cousin.
“Me & Mommy @ my big brother’s wedding,” Nicki captioned one snap.
An insider told the New York Post’s Page Six that Nicki arrived early for the wedding with seven security guards, make-up artists, a photographer and a few friends.
“Nicki couldn’t have been sweeter, she looked really happy for her brother, and she didn’t perform or take the spotlight during the reception," the source said. “She seemed to be making a point not to upstage the bride, saying it was her big day.”
The Anaconda hit-maker has her own wedding to plan after she got engaged to her rapper boyfriend Meek Mill in April following a whirlwind two-month relationship. The bride-to-be is reportedly yet to set a date for their big day, but showed off her white and yellow heart-shaped diamond rock as she posed with her family on Saturday.
