Nicki Minaj Testifies To Keep Boyfriend Meek Mill Out Of Jail
Nicki Minaj hit the stand in a bid to keep her boyfriend out of jail on Thursday, telling a Pennsylvania judge he’s “not perfect” but he’s a changed man. The “Anaconda” hitmaker’s rapper beau Meek Mill was in court in Pennsylvania for a parole violation hearing, and his girlfriend was by his side urging Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley to see what she sees in her man.
Mill, real name Robert Rihmeek Williams, is in trouble for reportedly violating parole in a 2009 drug and gun case by repeatedly changing his court-approved travel schedule, and accompanying Minaj to the recent American Music Awards in Los Angeles without the permission of his probation officer. Testifying for almost 30 minutes on Thursday, Minaj told Judge Brinkley, “He’s not perfect but I can’t believe how much he’s changed,” and then told the court she plans to help her boyfriend get organized and fulfill his community service requirements. Earlier, Williams’ lawyer, Frank DeSimone, urged the judge to consider the music industry is chaotic, suggesting his client has to make several last-minute travel arrangements and he was in no way trying to disrespect the court. DeSimone also stated Minaj and Williams are serious about getting married, adding the “Superbass” hitmaker would not be marrying a “criminal or bum.” Meek Mill is due back in court on December 17.
