Nicki Minaj’s Father Killed In Hit-And-Run In New York, Police Say

Father of American rapper Nicki Minaj, Robert Marah has reportedly been killed in a hit-and-run in Long Island.

Nassau County Police said that Maraj, 64, was walking along a road on Long Island on Friday evening when he was struck by an unidentified driver who then fled the scene.

Maraj was transported to an area hospital in critical condition and then died from injuries sustained from the crash on Saturday, according to police.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing, with no arrests made so far.

Police are asking any witnesses to the crash to come forward.

Nicki hasn’t spoken about her dad’s death yet. There are shots of them together embracing over the years, so they obviously had a decent relationship and saw each other from time to time. It’s unclear what Nicki’s relationship with her dad was currently.

A rep for Nicki confirmed her dad’s death but did not have further comment at this time.

Robert was just 64.
