Meek Mill hoped to be on the sidelines for game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals game involving the Philadelphia 76ers and the Toronto Raptors. On the other hand, an old legal nemesis for the rapper denied him the opportunity to go see his hometown squad take on their neighbors to the north.
TMZ Sports reports:
The Philly rapper has been on probation ever due to the fact his 2008 drug and weapons case … and has to get permission each time he desires to leave the state of Pennsylvania.
So, when the Sixers got matched up with the Raps in the Eastern Conference semi-finals this week, Meek — a Big Sixers fan — filed a request to make the trip to the six to cheer on his guys in particular person.
We’re told Meek’s probation officer signed off on the request with no challenge … but when it came to acquiring Brinkley’s signature, she refused to approve the request.
Of course, Meek and Brinkley have history … and it is no secret they do not get along.
Sixers co-owner Michael Rubin says Brinkley is deliberately ignoring their attempts to get approval … teeing off on the judge in an Instagram post.
“Judge Genece Brinkley – I know you have a vendetta against Meek Mill and are obsessed with attempting to manage each aspect of his life, but did you seriously NOT approve him to go to rep the Sixers in Toronto for the game?”
That stinks but hey, not all seven games will be hosted in Toronto and possibilities are this will be a lengthy series. May well the very best group win.
