The judge who sentenced Meek Mill to 2-4 years in prison for a probation violation is in hot water herself.
The New York Post reports that Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Genece Brinkley is being investigated by the FBI for her relationship with music agent Charlie Mack, the man she allegedly asked Meek to leave Roc Nation Management for.
Mack has a longstanding relationship with Meek, born Robert Williams, having previously worked with him early in his career.
It is alleged that Mack previously told the rapper that he “knows the judge and he could help him with his case.”
However, Mack insists that isn’t true.
“I’ve spent more time talking to you than I ever talked to the judge. There is no conspiracy, Meek is an old friend of 30-plus years,” he told the Post’s source.
The Feds are also looking into a report that Brinkley tried to get Meek to record a remake of Boys II Men’s “On Bended Knee” and shout her out. A request that was refused. Mack currently manages the group.
The probe into Brinkley’s activities began last year.
“The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. This is an investigation looking into a possible extortionate demand. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016,” the source revealed to the Post.
A representative for the FBI’s Philadelphia field office said, “Per [Justice Department] policy, we neither confirm nor deny the existence of investigations.”
If Brinkley is found to have committed these violations it could represent a huge break for Meek
