Nicki Minaj's mom Carol Maraj has filed a $150 million lawsuit in the death of her husband, Robert Maraj. The 64-year-old was killed after being struck by a 1992 white station wagon that was allegedly driven by Charles Polevich in Mineola, New York. He was taken to the hospital, where he died the next day. According to Billboard, Maraj's attorney Benjamin Crump filed the suit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York. Crump said in a statement, “He was fatally injured in a hit-and-run accident on February 12, 2021, when he was struck by a car being driven by Charles Polevich as Mr. Maraj walked along a Long Island road. After striking Maraj, Polevich left the accident scene and did not call for emergency services or render aid to Maraj.” The statement continued, “He was not only irresponsible and negligent, but more concerned about running away and hiding than seeking help. Polevich’s behavior was criminal, cowardly, and immoral. We will hold him responsible for his reckless actions that led to Robert Maraj’s death!” Polevich turned himself in to law enforcement on Feb. 17th and was charged with two felonies, leaving the scene of an accident that led to death and tampering with or suppressing physical evidence.
