Earlier this month, a judge sentenced Meek Mill to two to four years in jail for violating probation from his 2009 drug and weapons case.
It’s said one of Mill’s lawyers believes Judge Genece Brinkley has a grudge against the celeb because he wouldn’t do a remake of Boyz II Men‘s On Bended Knee and give her a shoutout. Um, yes. You read that correctly.
Now, the FBI has launched a probe into Philly judge presiding over the case, according to Page Six.
The 30-year-old’s legal team argues Brinkley has shown “enormous bias” against Meek and acted “inappropriately” by demanding the rapper to drop his current management, Roc Nation, to sign with Philly’s Charlie Mack (who has a criminal history).
A source told the outlet of the new development:
“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. Mack had previously told Meek how he ├óΓé¼╦£knows the judge and he could help him with his case.'”
So strange. We’ll keep you posted as we learn more.
