HOUSTON – Legal troubles continue to mount for a rapper who was recently incarcerated for a parole violation with the latest coming in the form of an assault and battery lawsuit filed in Harris County District Court.
Meek Mill is accused of attacking female clubgoer Cree Melvin at Dreams Bar and Lounge in Houston in the early morning hours of last Feb. 3, the suit states.
Melvin, the plaintiff, explains she was enjoying herself prior to the subject event when Meek Mill, 30, became involved in an argument with the nightspot’s owner. She claims the Philadelphia-born entertainer was in her vicinity, and he repeatedly bumped into and struck her.
Court documents further explain that Melvin attempted to tell Meek Mill, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, that he was hitting her, to which the defendant yelled an expletive and struck her in the face.
Meek Mill then reportedly taunted Melvin by saying, “I’m a made n****.”
Last month, the respondent was sentenced to two to four years in Pennsylvania state prison for breaking parole. About three weeks after the sentencing, he and the Jay-Z-owned Roc Nation were sued by the family of a man who was fatally shot in the parking lot outside a Connecticut concert late last year.
Melvin seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by attorneys Leroy B. Scott, Ph.D. and Kimberly Hoof of The Hoof Law Firm, PLLC in Houston.
