Minaj has spoken in the past about her relationship with her father, and has shared photographs on social media of the pair together hugging.

However, she did disclose in a 2010 interview that he had allegedly been abusive towards his wife, Carol.

She told Details magazine: "He drank a lot and did drugs, and he would get violent when he did. When he set fire to the house, he was attempting to kill my mother,

"She got out before it burned all the way down. I've always had this female-empowerment thing in the back of my mind - because I wanted my mother to be stronger, and she couldn't be. I thought: 'If I'm successful, I can change her life.'"

Anyone with information about the incident that claimed Maraj's life has been asked to call New York Police's Crime Stoppers on 1-800-244-TIPS.
