Over the Memorial Day, Meek Mill was accused of trespassing at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. A video of the incident was shared on his Twitter page on Saturday showing two hotel staff members that Meek would be arrested if he entered the hotel.
One of the staff members can be heard telling Meek, “We are private property, at this time, with the information we have, we’re refusing to do business with you, we have the right to do that,” but he refuses to tell Meek how he would be trespassing.
Meek has decided to file a lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan hotel this week for the actions against him. Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, vows to destroy the hotel. Telling TMZ, he will ask for “heavy monetary damages” for “lying and humiliating Meek,” adding, “I’m going to take this place down because of what they did.”
“The recent situation regarding Meek Mill related to a matter of security, not race, and any reports citing otherwise are false. We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive environment, with zero tolerance for discrimination. Under different circumstances, Meek Mill would be welcomed to the resort, but not at the compromise of his personal safety and the safety of our guests.”
