Meek Mill missed out on a big pay-day.
Unfortunate news for Meek Mill's pockets. According to Complex, the trial judge tied to the rapper's controversial case blocked Meek's bag after failing to grant permission on international travel. During an interview with ESPN's Outside The Lines, Michael Owner, a co-owner of the 76ers, revealed that Meek Mill had to pass up on a performance which would have lined up his pockets with a $450K paycheck. A source informed on the situation shared further details with Complex.

Precisely, Judge Genece Brinkley played around with Meek's request to travel which was submitted in early March. The performance would have occurred during the first week of April. The related request was due by March 15th for booking purposes, but Brinkley is alleged to have purposely missed the deadline and only approved the request on March 19th. The costly mistake seriously fumbled the rapper's bag.

This would not be Brinkley's first time messing out with the artist's coin. Apparently, the judge who had previously sent Meek to jail, pulled a similar move when Meek requested to travel to Toronto for a playoff game. The latter caused Rubin to call out the underhanded move via his Instagram, by stating: "I know you have a vendetta against Meek Mill and are obsessed with trying to control every aspect of his life, but did you really NOT approve him to go to rep the sixers in Toronto for the game?"
