Nicki Minaj's Father Robert Maraj Dies in Hit-And-Run

Nicki Minaj‘s father has sadly and suddenly died.

Robert Maraj, the father of the music superstar, passed away after being struck in a hit-and-run accident at the age of 64, TMZ reported Sunday (February 14).

“Nassau County Police in New York say he was walking on the road between Roslyn Road and Raff Avenue Friday evening around 6 p.m. ET, when he was hit by a vehicle heading northbound. Cops say the driver then fled the scene without a meaningful description from witnesses. Robert was taken to an area hospital in critical condition, where he succumbed to his injuries and passed over the weekend. The Homicide Squad is investigating the case and asking for the public’s help in identifying the responsible party,” the outlet reported.

Nicki has not yet spoken about her father’s death. While she had been outspoken about their rocky relationship in years past, it’s unclear where they stood more recently.
