As the Electronic Urban Report/EUR previously reported, Meek Mill’s legal woes prohibit him from traveling or performing until his February 5 sentencing for parole violation, resulting in a loss of income worth hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Meek was set to play a New Year’s Eve show in Las Vegas with his girlfriend Nicki Minaj, but will instead “be in Philadelphia performing community service under the watchful eye of his probation officer, Treas Underwood,” Page Six reports.
Even though Meek has been ordered to remain in Philly following a series of hearings over violation of probation from a 2008 conviction, insiders suspect Mill’s probation officer’s “obsession” with having a famous client is making his legal issues worse.
“She keeps showing up to his community service, which is not common,” a source said. “She has 122 other cases, but she has it out for him. Probation is supposed to be a rehabilitative thing, but she will do anything to keep him on probation.”
Sources claim Mill and Underwood have a history. “She’s from his neighborhood and he had an altercation with her cousin Coo when they were younger,” said a source. Mill is reportedly trying to get her removed from his case.
Born Robert Rihmeek Williams, Meek was officially inducted into the shady court system when he was 18, and has been on probation for one reason or another ever since. His most recent violation stems from his failure to procure a travel request in order to attend the 2015 American Music Awards in Los Angeles. He was found guilty of violating parole, and the judge scheduled a Feb. 5 hearing.
In addition to losing big performance payouts, Mill’s legal drama also cost him a role in the Will Smith-produced film “12 O’Clock Boys,” an upcoming film based on the 2013 documentary of the same name about dirt bikers in West Baltimore. Meek was a front-runner to portray Wheelie Wayne.
