Nicki Minaj has reportedly posted $100,000 bail for her brother, who has been charged with raping a 12-year-old, reports Page Six.

Jelani Maraj, 37, is the older brother of rapper Nicki Minaj. He was arrested last week on first-degree rape and first-degree sexual conduct with a child under the age of 13.

Further details are unknown, but he lives with his wife in Long Island, New York, where they are raising two children -- a girl about 12 years old and an 8-year-old boy, neighbors said. It's unclear if the kids are Jelani's biological children or step-children.

"She was prepared to do anything for her brother," a source said of Minaj, says Page Six.

Maraj is due back in court on Dec. 9.
