Meek Mill sues the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for false imprisonment and invasion of privacy.
Meek Mill is reportedly suing the city of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania for false imprisonment and invasion of privacy, according to TMZ.
Court documents indicate that Mill is suing Philadelphia over a 2012 incident. He says he was pulled over and told that law enforcement officials smelled marijuana in his car. They searched his vehicle and handcuffed the rapper "for refusing to let cops search" his car, as per the publication.
Mill says the incident caused hims to miss a flight to Atlanta, Georgia. The private jet cancellation reportedly cost $22,000. Moreover, Mill says he missed a public appearance that would have paid him $39,000.
Court documents also show that Mill claims he lost money when attempting to negotiate a $2 million deal with Puma. He says negative publicity from the 2012 incident caused him to settle for $650,000.
In March, Mill announced Dreams Worth More Than Money, the rapper's upcoming sophomore album. At the time of the album announcement, Mill said the project would be released this summer.
