The families of the two men killed during a shooting outside Meek Mill’s concert are now demanding $6,000,000 to settle the lawsuits against the rapper.
On November 21, court documents were filed by the estates for Jaquan Graves and Travis Ward in which they explained they are willing to settle their separate cases against Meek.
Both claim to be willing to accept $3 million each to bring an end to the cases they brought against Meek, for a grand total of $6 million both families are seeking.
Meek has yet to file a response to their offer of compromise.
Last year, the rapper was sued by the estate of Jaquan Graves for wrongful death after Graves was shot and killed outside Meek’s 2016 concert in Connecticut while he was leaving the show.
Meek was also hit with a separate lawsuit by the estate of Travis Ward, who was killed during the shooting outside the venue.
Both lawsuits accused Meek, along with the Oakdale Musical Theatre Company and Live Nation, of being negligent in handing security of the concert. The suit also pointed to Meek’s lyrics claiming they incite violence and described how Meek’s concert have had shootings in the past.
Meek has denied all allegations that he had any role in contributing to the shooting, saying it was out of his control and he could not have known the shooting was going to happen.
