Could be worse!
Meek Mill got in big trouble in November when he violated his probation for a 2009 drug and gun conviction by attending the American Music Awards without permission. And it certainly didn’t help things when he failed his urine test afterwards…
Despite a heartfelt testimony from his girlfriend Nicki Minaj, the Philadelphia judge still ruled the instance a violation and determined the 28-year-old’s punishment on Friday.
The All Eyes On You rapper was sentenced 6 to 12 months house arrest — which might seem bad, but it’s a lot better than serving time in county jail. He will do a minimum of 90 days and then the judge will reevaluate.
He is due to turn himself in on March 1st.
Meek is also banned from working (rapping, performing, etc) while serving his sentence. He will only be allowed to participate in charity work for the community.
Sorry, we just got really excited there.
