Driver Who Allegedly Killed Nicki Minaj’s Father, Robert Maraj, In Hit-And-Run Accident Turns Himself In To Police

TSR Updatez: Roommates, we were saddened to report that Nicki Minaj’s father, Robert Maraj, was struck and killed in a hit-and-run accident on Friday. It is now being reported, however, that the man who allegedly hit Maraj has turned himself in to the police.

According to Page Six, the man, who has not been identified at this time, turned himself in to authorities on Wednesday morning. As we previously reported, Robert Maraj was struck by a car in Mineola, New York, and unfortunately, the driver fled the scene.

Maraj was rushed to a local hospital and was in critical condition for some time before succumbing to his injuries and passing away. Robert Maraj was 64 years old.

As we previously reported, Nicki is living in new mommy bliss, as she recently gave birth to her baby boy, who we know as Papa Bear. Nicki finally let us see her little one back in January, and his photos definitely set the ‘gram on fire.


Nicki has yet to speak out on the tragedy, but we ask that you call continue to keep her and her loved ones in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time, Roomies.
