Meek Mill Is Facing Another Wrongful Death Lawsuit

meek mill is facing another wrongful death lawsuit

Meek Mill’s legal troubles continue to pile up.

Just weeks after being sentenced to two to four years in prison, Meek Mill, along with his management team at Roc Nation, have been slapped with a wrongful death lawsuit – stemming from a 2016 shooting that took place outside of the Toyota Oakdale Theatre in Wallingford, Connecticut, that left Jaquan Graves, 20, and Travis Ward, 30, dead.

According to TMZ, Graves’ family claim Meek and Roc Nation “allowed thugs to remain on the premises, after exhibiting disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry and/or agitated behavior toward patrons.” They are are seeking unspecified damages.

Earlier this year, Ward’s family filed a similar lawsuit against Meek Mill and the concert venue – claiming that proper security wasn’t provided at the show and necessary measures weren’t taken to control the crowd and ensure the safety of fans.

The family’s attorney, Joel Faxon, released the following statement back in May, “With song titles like ‘body count’ and ‘oh kill’em’ that praise indiscriminate killing and mayhem, the potential for tragic incidents like this should have been properly anticipated and planned for by Meek Mill, his concert promoters and the Oakdale Theatre.”

Meek Mill has asked the judge to drop the Wards’ lawsuit.
