Nicki Minaj has been m*urn!ng the lo-ss of her father Robert Maraj since he Pa-ss-es away in February.
On Sunday, the 10-time Grammy Award nominee, 38, wished her late father a happy birthday on Instagram. “Happy Birthday Daddy,” Minaj wr-ote in the caption. “Miss u so much. So much. So so much. R*st In p**ce. Oh my God.”
Her rep previously confirmed to PEOPLE that Maraj Pa-ss-ed away on Feb. 12 after he was str**k in a h!t-and-r!n acc!d-ent in Long Island, New York. He was 64.
The Be-am Me Up Scotty rapper recently broke her sil-ence about the d*** of her father, releasing a lengthy statement on her website. “Tho I can’t really bring myself to discuss the p-ass!ng of my father as yet; I can say it has been the most dev-astat!ng lo-ss of my life,” she wro-te.
“I find myself wanting to call him all the time,” the mom of one continued. “More so now that he’s gone. Life is funny that way. May his soul rest in parad*se. He was very loved & will be very m!ss-ed.”
Nassau County Police identified 70-year-old Charles Polevich as the driver in the h*t-and-r*n that k*ll*d Maraj a few days after his d***. Polevi-ch was arrested and charged with leaving the scene of an acc!d-ent with a fatality and tampering with e-vid-ence.
In February, Polevich pleaded not gu-ilty and was released on a $250,000 bond, his lawyer Michael Scotto told CNN.
Minaj’s mother, Carol Maraj, has filed a $150 million lawsuit against Polevich in the state Supreme Court. “Polevich’s behavior was criminal, co-ward-ly, and immoral,” her lawyer Ben Cr*mp said in a statement. “We will hold him responsible for his reckless act-ions that led to Robert Maraj’s pa-ss-es a-way!”
The Queen artist has been open about her tumultu-ous relationship with her father in the past, revealing that he was abus*ve toward her mother and he suffer-ed from d*** and alcohol add!ct-ion.
