Exclusive: Wood Harris Would Rather Not See Meek Mill Go To Jail
It looks like Chris Brown is not the only supporter of Meek Mill who was recently found guilty of violating probation. The Breaks star, Wood Harris would also love to not see Meek go to jail.
During Mill’s recent court hearing, the rapper plead that he’s a changed man thanks to the probation he was already given. “The chance you gave me definitely changed my life and changed my family’s life,” Mill testified. “If you didn’t give me a chance, I probably wouldn’t be at this place I’m at now.”
The judge, however, questioned, “How many times am I supposed to give him a second chance? This court has done nothing but try to help the defendant.”
But during a recent interview with Harris to talk about his upcoming VH1 film, Harris defended Mill saying, why can’t he be a changed man? “People change everyday,” he told us exclusively. “Somebody you’re around every day has something to do with it, there’s no lie. If it is a life, truth is around there.”
He added, “I don’t like it when people go to jail. I think that jail is made for certain types, I don’t know if Meek Mill needs to be going to jail … I get sick and tired of people getting locked up for non violent things and maybe drug related things. I would like to see him not go to jail.”
During Meek’s recent hearing, he also explained “I have my queen, Nicki [Minaj] now,” this all in efforts to get the judge to change her mind. And while many think it’s odd for Meek to use his girlfriend as a hopeful get out of jail free card, Wood’s co-star, Antoine Harris would do the same.
“If I’d been in jail, I would use whatever I had to use to not go back to jail, if I’m being honest,” Antoine said. “I can’t knock the hustle, who wanna be locked in the box.”
Meek is due back February 5th.
