Meek Mill‘s recent parole violation is going to hit him heavy in the pockets. The judge put the Philadelphia rapper on ice—he is unable to perform or travel; which means paid gigs are getting cancelled and a role he secured in a Will Smith movie is a wrap.
The “Amen” rapper’s sentencing isn’t until February 5, so besides having to worry about his freedom, his bank account may start to dwindle.
Our Meek sources say the rapper had a bunch of gigs on the books before a Pennsylvania judge prohibited him from leaving the state. As we reported, Meek — who’s on probation in his gun and drug case — is on the hot seat because he came to LA for the AMA’s with GF Nicki Minaj without getting court approval.
Not only is he losing big money by not performing at concerts, he’s shelling out tens of thousands of dollars every month for commitments he’s made in L.A. He and Nicki are leasing a house that is now off limits to him. Ditto an L.A. recording studio he’s already booked for $15k a week.
The biggest worry is a New Year’s Eve performance he and Nicki booked in Vegas. Tickets have already been sold and he fears a backlash from fans.
Being that it’s the court system that’s stopping Meek from meeting his obligations, he shouldn’t have to worry about being sued for breach of contract, or something like that. But yet another L for Meek occurred even before the court appearances due to his infamously suspect urine test.
Reports Page Six:
Page Six has exclusively learned that Mill was meant to travel to Hollywood, Calif., in November regarding a role in “12 O’Clock Boys,” an upcoming movie by Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.
It’s based on the story of the infamous West Baltimore illegal-dirt-bike riders who were the subject of an indie documentary that debuted at SXSW in 2013. Mill was to play the role of “Wheelie Wayne,” sources said.
But Mill missed a scheduled trip to LA for the film because he had to take a urine test as part of his probation just four days after a previous test.
Reportedly, make was going to make $140K off of the aforementioned Las Vegas gig.
Time to dial back on those expenses, Meek.
