Nicki Minaj Cries Inside Court As Judge Sentences Meek Mill to House Arrest

| February 5, 2016 | 0 Comments

According to sources who was inside a Philadelphia courtroom where Robert Williams professionally known as Meek Mill pleaded with a judge not to send him back to prison for violating the terms of his parole. The courtroom was packed with Williams’s family, friends and girlfriend Nicki Minaj. Williams violated the terms of his probation when he failed to inform the court that he was traveling out of town for work.

If there was any doubt that the judge in his case was going to go light on him that didn’t appear to be the cause because he will be required to remain under house arrest for 90 days and wear an ankle monitor and not release any music commercially or even release a mixtape because in doing so he would be in violation of his probation and likely would be sent to prison. Mill will have to start serving his house arrest on March 1 and will only be allowed to leave his home to feed the homeless.

Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley on Friday ordered Mill to serve 90 days on house arrest, effective March 1, for violating the terms of his parole in a 2009 drug and gun case. Meek Mill stated to the judge that his busy schedule was the reason why he had violated and while he was facing jail time, he thanked the judge for believing in him and hoped she would give him a second chance. Our sources stated that Nicki Minaj broke down in tears while she was watching the rapper plead for leniency.

“I just want to ask you for a chance to turn that corner and be a changed man,” he said. “You said you saw something in me … I want to prove you right. I believe I can be the bright star you intended me to be.”

Prosecutors described violations that include unapproved travel to New York for a benefit concert and efforts to join Minaj in various cities. They also said he turned in cold water instead of urine for a drug test, making the judge question if a prior problem with painkillers was at issue.

Minaj told the judge in December that she was trying to help her boyfriend become more organized and responsible. They have been frequently been seated courtside at the Philadelphia 76ers games for the past two months, since Brinkley ordered Mill not to leave the Philadelphia area.

Minaj did not testify Friday. At one point during the judge’s remarks, she appeared to have been crying.

Meek Mill is represented by Attorney Frank Desimore but was not available for comment at press time.
