Meek Mill and his recent prison sentence over violating probation culminated in a rally that took place Monday evening (Nov. 13), with his Maybach Music Boss Rick Ross joining the effort. The stir caused by the outcry over the sentence and allegations of legal misconduct by the judge allegedly caught the attention of the FBI but there is no official word yet.
Page Six exclusively reports:
Stars including Jay-Z and Rick Ross have criticized Judge Genece Brinkley for sentencing Meek, whose real name is Robert Williams, to two to four years in jail for a probation violation, even though the district attorney and Meek’s probation officer had asked for no jail time. He is currently in solitary confinement.
Meek’s attorney Joe Tacopina has publicly claimed Brinkley showed “enormous bias” against the star and acted “inappropriately” by repeatedly asking the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, and sign with Philly music figure Charlie Mack, whom Meek worked with early in his career.
A source told us of the FBI interest in the case, “The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016.”
Charlie Mack, who some might remember was closely aligned with Will Smith, also known as The Fresh Prince, claims he doesn’t know Judge Brinkley. Further, the FBI field office has offered nothing in the way of supporting the alleged investigation.
