Nicki Minaj’s Cousin Shot Dead In Brooklyn, NYC

Poor Nicki…

The “Barbie” of pop announced some terrible news yesterday: her cousin, Nicholas Telemaque, had been shot in Brooklyn multiple times and was pronounced dead on arrival at Kings County Hospital.

It’s truly a terrible story and we’re all really sorry for her loss. But also, Brooklyn… get it together!

Over the 4th of July, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Nicki Minaj [/lastfm] played in Winnipeg, Canada as the opener for [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Britney Spears[/lastfm]’ Femme Fatale tour. She also tweeted a birthday message to her rumored boyfriend, Safaree “SB” Samuels.

But the long weekend ended in tragedy for Minaj as she heard news of her cousin’s death. At around 2:40 AM, the police responded to a call from East Flatbush, Brooklyn where they found a wounded Telemaque. He supposedly left the nightclub “C-PAC” and was shot shortly thereafter; the club was only a few blocks from his home.

No arrests have been made, but I’m sure everyone hopes there will be soon.

Nicki tweeted condolences for her cousin and also attached photos of the 27-year-old.
