This and other incidents prompted the rapper’s mother, Carol Maraj Foundation to provide emotional and financial support to victims of domestic violence. According to the New York-Nassau County Police Department, Robert was walking on the road between Roslyn Road and Ruff Avenue Friday night when he was struck by a northbound car. According to a press release, Robert Maraj died after he was hit and killed in the accident. During an episode of The Wendy Williams Show in 2010, Nicki recounted one of her father’s abusive moments during her childhood. Maraj was rushed to a local hospital in critical condition, but unfortunately he passed away from his injuries over the weekend. Authorities added that the driver fled, and that they were unable to obtain helpful descriptions from witnesses in the area. Although the rapper has said little about his father, a key moment in her ten years ago occurred during a television interview. It wasn’t an attempt, he did it! My mom was home and she had to run away at the last minute. Nikki has yet to comment on her father’s death. “He burned down the house.”
