The estranged wife of Nicki Minaj’s older brother took the stand for the second day on Friday as she testified against her ex in his rape trial.

Jacqueline Robinson said that she and Jelani Maraj had the perfect relationship, until she learned that her husband, 38,  had allegedly been raping her 11-year-old daughter.

‘I used to call us the black Brady Bunch,’ Robinson said on the stand as she testified at Nassau County Court on Thursday.

‘We blended our family. I loved him. Finding out about these accusations – it hurt.’

One day prior, Robinson testified that she had no idea anything was wrong until her daughter started retreating into herself in the weeks before her wedding to Maraj.

Nicki Minaj had not commented on the case and it appears that the rapper will not be testifying on her brother’s behalf, this despite claims made by his lawyer to the contrary.
