Meek Mill Suing City Of Philadelphia For Suspect Arrest & Tarnished Puma Deal


Meek Mill always reps for his Philadelphia hometown, but the City of Brotherly put a cramp in his pockets. Thus, the MMG rapper is suing the City of Philadelphia for costing him millions in endorsement deal money with Puma thanks to a suspect arrest. 

Reports TMZ:

According to the lawsuit, Meek claims his Halloween 2012 arrest was total BS because even though cops claimed they smelled pot in his car … they ultimately came up with zilch. Meek says he was cuffed for refusing to let cops search — and he ended up missing a private jet flight to Atlanta.

Meek claims he lost $22k on the cancelled jet and a $39K appearance fee for the A-Town party he missed. 

In the docs, he also claims he took a hit in negotiating a $2 million deal with Puma because all the negative pub from the arrest … forced him to settle for a mere $650K. 

Meek is suing the city of Philly for false imprisonment, invasion of privacy … and most importantly (we suspect) to get back some of that lost dough.

This is the same arrest for which Meek sued the Philadelphia PD for false imprisonment.

Think Meek has a legit case? Let us know in the comments.

    People saying yeah the city should pay. If he wins, where do you think that money will come from? You think the city is going to sell off some property? No schools and other inner city budgets will be cut. I will be more supportive if he named the cops in this lawsuit and asked for their immediate dismissal.
