Exclusive: Three Other Reasons Why Meek Mill Was Probably Denied Bail! Lawyer Tells All!

Published

on

Meek Mill was denied bail on Monday and according to the judge, it’s all because Meek is apparently a “flight risk.”

In court documents, Judge Genece Brinkley claims Meek is a “a danger to the community” which is why she denied him bail. She also thinks Meek might have tried to “beat the drug test” by doing some sort of cleanse.

And while Brinkley thinks to have a valid reason behind her keeping Mill locked up, it’s Meek’s lawyer who is claiming the decision rests solely in the ongoing mistreatment and resentment towards the rapper.

According to reports, during a hearing last year, Brinkley asked for Meek to do a remake of Boyz II Men’s “On Bended Knee” and for him to give her a shout out. He, however, said no.

Mill’s attorney didn’t speak in length about the bail denial, but according to entertainment lawyer, Mitra Ahouraian, the judge’s decision to deny bail also might be because of the following reasons.

  1. Might Not Show Up To Court: “A judge will only grant bail if he/she is confident the Defendant will show up to his/her court date. Remember, bail puts money at risk – they lose the money if they don’t show,” Ahouraian tells HipHollywood. If Meek is “at risk,” then he could be a liability.
  2. Will He Go On A Drug Binge?: If judge believes Meek created on his drug test, she might have reason to believe the rapper will get out and go on a “binge” and miss his court date.
  3. Nature Of First Offense: Given the nature of the initial drug and gun case, judge might feel he is “a danger to the community, since he is accused of a violent crime. The concern is letting him out on bail would put the public at risk.”

Nicki Minaj’s ex-boyfriend was sentenced to 2-4 years behind bars for violation of probation in a gun and drug case from 2008. Brinkley made the call after citing a failed drug test and failure to comply with a court order restricting the rapper’s travel.

The punishment seems a bit extreme and many people are suggesting it doesn’t fit the crime. Celebrities, including Kevin Hart and Jay Z have spoken out about the “unfair” and “unjust” ruling.

Dwyane Wade On New Heartfelt Documentary: It’s A Story “I Never Got A Chance To Tell As A Kid”

Published

It’s been an epic week for Dwyane Wade and Gabrielle Union.

It first started with one of the biggest trades of the year with Wade returning back to Miami to finish the rest of the season with the Heat. “I was happy,” Wade told us on Thursday night about the trade.

He added, “The journey of the NBA took me to Chicago, it took me to Cleveland, but it also brought me back to Miami; a place from a basketball sense birthed me.”

Days following the big NBA announcement, the lovebirds then celebrated the release of Dwyane’s documentary, Shot in the Dark, which the NBA champion produced alongside Chance the Rapper.

The film follows the Orr Academy High School basketball team on Chicago’s Westside. Throughout the documentary, cameras capture the journey of individual athletes trying to make it to the NBA despite growing up in the violent streets of Chicago.

During the screening, Wade also opened up to HipHollywood about why the project was near and dear to his heart. “It’s home,” the Chicago native said. “I jumped on board right away because it’s a story being told that I never got a chance to tell as a kid. To be able to shed some positive light on a tough, dark situation for us was big.”

Union added, “I’m so proud. Coming up on Hoop Dreams … It explores so many other topics that are critical to kids in Chicago.”

As for whether or not D-Wade picked up some advice from his TV star boo, not quite. When asked what tips Union gave Wade ahead of the project, the actress told us, “None. You have to learn. Humility and school of hard knocks. Things are not going to go your way and you have to learn through experience just like the rest of us.”

Check out the documentary on February 24 on Fox Sports.
