Nicky Minaj’s rapper boyfriend Meek Mill finds himself amidst a series of financial and career-related woes. A Pennsylvania judge has prohibited him from leaving the state, due to a technical violation of his parole terms in a 2008 drug and gun case. He came to LA, apparently, for the AMA’s with Minaj without getting the court’s approval. And unfortunately, the rapper had numerous gigs booked outside the keystone state, and he can no longer perform them.
And not only is Meek losing large amounts of cash by missing all of these different concerts, he’s paying tends of thousands of dollars each month for various bookings he’s already made in LA, himself. For instance, he and Minaj are currently leasing a house — a house that, being outside of Pennsylvania, he cannot live in, or even visit. Similarly, Meek has booked a recording studio at $15,000 per week, and is unable to record anything there, according to TMZ.
Worse still, Meek was meant to travel to Hollywood in November regarding a role in “12 O’Clock Boys,” an upcoming movie by Will Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.
This movie is based on the story of the West Baltimore illegal-dirt-bike riders who were the subject of an indie documentary; Mill was to play the role of “Wheelie Wayne,” according to Page Six.

But Mill missed a scheduled trip to LA for the film because he had to take a urine test as part of his probation just four days after a previous test.
Meek’s biggest concern, though, is his New Year’s Eve performance that he and Minaj booked in Vegas. Tickets to this show have already been sold, and the word is that Meek fears a fan backlash.
Meek is due back in court later next month, but has already been ordered not to work or perform util February, when the judge will pass down a sentence. Though Minaj has testified in his favor, it is unclear what this will do.
