Uh oh! It looks like Meek Mill will be grounded for a little while longer. The rapper’s house arrest has been extended because he couldn’t follow the rules. So, what did he do?
Well, that’s disappointing. Meek Mill, 29, should be celebrating his freedom, but instead his house arrest was extended because he couldn’t follow a judge’s orders! Put away the swimming trunks and break out the volunteer hats!
The Philadelphia rapper was hit with eight, additional days of house arrest due to failing to follow the judge’s guidelines for his probation, according to TMZ. Ouch! In addition to the monitored home stay, Meek was ordered to put in 3 months of community service, which he seemed to be completing. The only problem — he volunteered at all the wrong places!
The judge mandated that Meek commit 90 days of work with the nonprofit, homeless organization, Habitat for Humanity, or a senior citizens or veterans organization.
Instead, the “All the Way Up Remix” rapper spent his community service hours visiting schools, lending a handle to residents affected by the Flint Water Crisis, and giving motivational speeches as special events. He apparently put in a couple of hours at a homeless shelter, but not enough to suffice. These are undoubtedly noble acts, but they weren’t listed on his sheet of requirements. And another problem was that he only worked six days a week. Oops!
The judge ordered the additional days so that Meek could go back and complete his debt to society at the appropriate organizations. Meek’s team claims that the specific places were never specified in court, although documents clearly outline the terms, according to TMZ.

Meek’s original release date was supposed to be on June 1, but the court will has suspended his release until his volunteer work is completed and reevaluated. We could only imagine that his girlfriend, Nicki Minaj, 33, isn’t too happy about this.
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Meek Mill’s extended house arrest? Do you think the judge should be lenient?
