Meek Mill Hit With Second Wrongful Death Lawsuit for Concert Shooting
What's been an extremely rough month for Meek Mill has only gotten rougher. Very recently, the incarcerated rapper and Roc Nation were hit with a wrongful death lawsuit for a concert shooting at Wallingford, Conn.'s Oakdale Theatre. It's the second such suit Meek's faced this year, with both stemming from the same shooting.
According to TMZ, Meek and Roc Nation are being sued by the family of Jaquan Graves, who was shot in the parking lot of the Wallingford concert last December. The lawsuit claims Graves had just left the venue when he was shot.
The lawsuit claims that meek and the JAY-Z-owned Roc Nation, "allowed thugs to remain on the premises, after exhibiting disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry and/or agitated behavior toward patrons." The damages the estate is looking for haven't been disclosed.
The first wrongful death suit to come from the Wallingford concert shooting came from the family of Travis Ward. At the time, the family claimed that the violent nature of Meek Mill's lyrics attracted a violent crowd. A short time later, Meek, who's currently serving a two to four-year prison sentence for violating the terms of his probation, allegedly claimed there were some racist undertones embedded in the suit, but he never made an official statement on them.
XXL has reached out to both Meek Mill and Roc Nation for comment on this situation.
