Nicki Minaj Takes To Twitter To Mourn Cousin’s Murder


Our condolences go out to Nicki Minaj and her family this morning. The hip hop starlet announced on Twitter today that her cousin, Nicholas Telamaque, was gunned down outside his Brooklyn home over the holiday weekend. “Lived in Brooklyn his whole life. My precious cousin. My baby. Killed last nite,” she wrote on Twitter, adding, “*My cousin Nicholas. Also goes by Juse, or @brolicalcoholic* Murdered. Last nite. Near his home. Brooklyn,NY.”

Nicki also posted two photos of Nicholas, one of which is above. The NY Post confirms Nicki’s report in their Daily Blotter, with this brief report:

“A man was killed in a barrage of bullets in East Flatbush yesterday, police said. Nicholas Telamaque, 27, was shot five blocks from his home on East 52nd Street and Farragut Road at 2:40 a.m. Cops were called and found him with gunshot wounds to his upper torso. He was rushed to Kings County Hospital, where he later died. It is unclear what spurred the violence.”
