I’m sad to report Nicki Minaj‘s father, Robert Maraj, was killed in a hit-and-run accident on Friday.
According to Nassau County Police, Robert was walking on the road between Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue on Friday evening around 6 p.m. when he was struck by a vehicle traveling northbound.
The driver fled the scene without rendering aid to Mr. Maraj.
Robert was taken to an area hospital in critical condition.
Unfortunately, Robert Maraj succumbed to his injuries.
He was 64.
Nicki’s rep confirmed Robert’s passing, but did not offer further comment.
My sincerest condolences and prayers to the Maraj family during their time of bereavement.
