Nicki Minaj’s Mother Sues Over Father’s Fatal Hit-and-Run for $150 Million

Car accident in Nassau County

In a tragic incident on Long Island, Carol Maraj, mother of rapper Nicki Minaj, has initiated a $150 million civil lawsuit following a fatal hit-and-run accident that claimed the life of Minaj’s father, Robert Maraj. The fatal collision occurred on February 12 when Mr. Maraj, aged 64, was struck while walking along a road in Long Island by a vehicle driven by Charles Polevich.

Authorities reported that after the impact, Polevich stopped to check on the injured man but then decided to flee the scene without contacting emergency services. The victim was subsequently transported to a hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries hours later. Nassau County Police Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick, addressing reporters last month, stated that Polevich was fully aware of his actions, choosing to leave the scene and hide his vehicle instead of seeking aid for the grievously injured Maraj.

The lawsuit was announced by Carol Maraj’s attorney on social media, with strong words condemning Polevich’s actions as “criminal, cowardly, and immoral,” and affirming their intention to hold him accountable.

Just days following the incident, Polevich was apprehended and faces charges for leaving the scene of a crash and tampering with evidence. Commenting on the lawsuit, his defense attorney expressed Polevich’s sympathy for the Maraj family but labeled the $150 million demand as “shocking”
