Meek Mill’s Lawyer Says Judge Told Him To Leave Roc Nation To Sign With Her Friend
The Judge reportedly has a vendetta against Meek Mill.
On Monday, Meek Mill was sentenced to two to four years in state prison for violating his probation. Judge Genece Brinkley cited his two arrests this year, a failed drug test, and a failure to comply with a court order restricting his travel as her reasoning for the harsh sentencing.
But according to Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, Brinkley “crossing the line of professionalism and traditional conduct”, and is actually infatuated with Dreams and Nightmares rapper.
Tacopina recalls the time Brinkley asked Meek to remake Boyz II Men’s song “On Bended Knee” and shout her out. Apparently, Meek thought Brinkley was joking around until she stated, “I’m not kidding.” Meek turned down her idea, Brinkley then replied, “Okay, suit yourself.”
Tacopina also claims that Brinkley asked Meek to leave Roc Nation to sign with a friend of hers. During an in-depth interview with Billboard, Tacopina stated, “When she requests he leaves his current management Roc Nation — which is one of the most important management companies in the world — and goes back to a local Philadelphia guy who has a spotted past because she had a personal relationship with him as manager, again, she’s doing something that a judge would never be doing, having a personal interest. Why did she ask that her friend be his manager and not Roc Nation? That lacks appropriateness of a judge. You can’t do that as a judge, but she did it.”
In addition, Tacopina says Brinkley popped up while Meek was completing community service for the homeless in Philadelphia, “She showed up and sat at the table. She’s a judge. You could pull any judge in America and ask them how many times they’ve showed up at a community service for a probation and the answer is zero.”
Tacopina says he won’t back down until justice is served, “We’re going to appeal. We’re going to appeal until this gets rectified and it will get rectified. I’m sure of that.”
