Rapper and current boyfriend of Nicki Minaj has avoided jail term following a sentence of three months of house arrest. A Philadelphia judge sentenced Meek, whose legal name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, to house arrest for a minimum of 90 days, starting on the 1st of March.
He’ll be required to wear an ankle monitor and will be prevented from working (which includes releasing new music), though he can do charity work during that time. He will also be on probation for the next six years.
After 90 days, the judge will consider whether he will remain under house arrest.
In December, the judge ruled that Meek had violated his probation due to unauthorized trips outside of the Philadelphia area. During that hearing, Meek told the judge, “I’m not a gangsta. I’m not a criminal. I have my queen, Nicki now. I’m trying to do better and feel like I can be the best rapper out there.”
In 2009, Meek was on probation due to a drug and gun conviction. He served five months in jail in 2014, for violating his probation.
