Nicki Minaj’s cousin was killed yesterday in Brooklyn, New York. The rapper announced the news on Twitter with no details as to how or why the murder happened.
However, Radar Online is reporting that Nicholas Telemaque, 27, was shot to death and that they believe it could be a case of ‘mistaken identity.’
His cousin Carol Clarke said, “He was shot in the chest as he walked towards his car close to his home. Nicki is absolutely devastated as are all our family – she was very close to her cousin but now he has gone. She has reached out to Nicholas’ mom Victoria to offer her words of comfort but she is too distraught. Nicholas was a quiet person but he could be the life and soul of the party too – he did not run with gangs or anything like that.
“His friends have told us there wasn’t any trouble that night and we believe it could have been a case of mistaken identity but the police are still investigating the case. We are still trying to make arrangements for his funeral but I will really miss him because he was a good person.”
