Update 06/15/2021 10:08am:

Previously, tragic news surfaced about Nicki Minaj’s father—Robert Maraj, with her father being struck and killed by a driver in a hit-and-run. The driver in the incident was caught days later, and it was revealed that a 70-year-old man named Charles Polevich was behind the hit. Since then, Nicki’s mother—Carol Maraj, filed a $150 million lawsuit related to the death of her husband in the incident against Polevich. Now, Polevich has reportedly denied all wrongdoing in the tragic incident.

Court documents surfaced noting that Polevich was not accepting any blame for the incident and even went as far as attempting to get the suit dismissed. The documents show that Polevich’s lawyer allegedly accused Robert Maraj of being “reckless, careless and negligent in crossing the street.” Along with that, the lawyer claims Polevich had to make a “sudden and unexpected circumstance, not of his own making,” due to the emergency in front of him.

As of now, Polevich has pleaded not guilty to the charges against him. The 70-year-old’s driver’s license has been suspended, and he is barred from leaving New York. Polevich is set to make an appearance in court in August 2021.
