Nicki Minaj is proving she’s truly ‘ride or die’ for her boyfriend, Meek Mill. Meek faces jail time over violating his probation and Nicki bravely stood up for her boo, testifying for him during his Dec. 10 court hearing.
Whether they like it or not, Nicki Minaj, 33, will not let the authorities take her boyfriend, Meek Mill, 28, without a fight. The “All Eyes On You” rapper may be headed to jail, but not before Nicki takes the stand to convince the judge to let her possible fiancé go free!
Nicki appeared in a Philadelphia courtroom to testify for her boyfriend on Dec. 10, reports Page Six of the New York Post. Nicki spoke up over the charges that Meek violated the conditions of his parole when he travelled to California. After her turn on the stand, the proceedings were adjourned until Dec. 17, so Nicki may have to return to Philly to keep her boy from getting locked up!
Meek was ordered to appear before a judge as he was not given permission to travel to Los Angeles to attend the American Music Awards on Nov. 22. After a 2008 drug and gun conviction, Meek needs to get a travel voucher before he steps one foot out of his hometown of Philadelphia.
Sure, he got the okay to go on tour with Nicki, but popping over to LA to see his girl win the AMA for Best Rap Artist? Seems Meek forgot to ask. That oversight may have him end up behind bars. Yikes. Clearly, Nicki doesn’t want to get married to her boy in a Philadelphia County jail and she will fight to keep him out.
Sadly, this isn’t the only time Nicki has been involved with the law as of late. Her brother, Jelani Maraj, was arrested for allegedly raping an underage child. Jelani has been charged with one felony account of rape, following an April 1, 2015 incident. He also faces one charge of Course Sexual Conduct, which means multiple sexual acts with a child less than thirteen years old.
Nicki quickly came to her brother’s side and bailed him out. Nicki put up the reported $100,000 bond needed for him to go free from the Nassau Country jail. Jelani was ordered to return to court for a Dec. 9 hearing, and the case is still ongoing.
The whole situation has left its toll on Nicki. She’s “at a loss for words at her brother’s situation,” a source close to the “Super Bass” singer EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. “Her heart has dropped…and [she hopes] these charges will be proven false.”
Do you think Meek is headed to jail, HollywoodLifers? Or will Nicki’s testimony keep him from being locked up?
