It is with a heavy heart that we report that a cousin of rap diva Nicki Minaj was shot and killed over the holiday weekend in Brookyn. Minaj disclosed the news via Twitter on the Fourth of July, saying that her cousin, Nicholas Telemaque, was murdered near his home in Brooklyn, New York. How tragic.
Here is the text of Minaj's tweet: "*My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse, or @brolicalcoholic* Murdered. Last nite [sic]. Near his home. Brooklyn, NY. http://lockerz.com/s/117042525."
Police found Telemaque, 27, with "multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso region," reported MTV. The investigation is ongoing, with no arrests yet made.
We send our thoughts and prayers out to the Minaj family.
What do you think of Nicki Minaj bravely sharing such news with her fans via Twitter?
