The rapper will not be able to work on his music during the period.
Nicki Minaj’s rumoured fiancé rapper Meek Mill has avoided jail time after a parole violation. Mill was sentence to 90 days house arrest on Friday, after violating probation for the fourth time in eight years, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.
Meek Mill has been sentenced to 90 days of house arrest.
Mill, real name Robert Williams, will spend 90 days under house arrest, where he will not be able to work on his music and can only leave his house to do community service work for organisations with adults. He will also wear an ankle monitoring bracelet during that time.
In December Minaj had testified on behalf on her boyfriend who has had several run-ins with the law. Speaking in court Mill said: “I believe I can be the bright star you expect me to be.” Later Mill added that he blamed his problems on the struggles of fame. "Early in my career, I was caught up between money and success,” he said.
Mill’s legal problems began in 2008 when he was convicted for drug possession and carrying a gun without a license. He served eight months in prison and then began a five year probation term in 2009.
The rapper has violated his probation a number of times and in 2014 it was revoked and he was sentenced to four months in prison, getting released in December 2014. In December 2015 he was accused of violating his parole by ignoring travel rules and submitting a ‘suspicious urine sample,’ according to the LA. Times.
Mill has been dating Minaj since early last year and the couple are rumoured to be engaged. Testifying on his behalf in December Minaj told the court: "He doesn't have a lot of structure. He can be irresponsible. Since I've come in his life, I think I've been working on that a little bit. ... He's just getting accustomed to being an adult."
