Meek Mill is adamant he had nothing to do with a man being shot outside his concert and believes the lawsuit against him should be dismissed.
The rapper was sued last November 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.
The suit accused Meek and the venue of being negligent and allowing “thugs to remain on the premises, after exhibiting disorderly, disruptive, argumentative, angry and/or agitated behavior toward patrons."
Meek is currently facing three separate lawsuits over the incident.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Meek says he had nothing to do with the tragic incident and accuses the estate of adding him to the suit improperly. He points out he was not a participant in the event that actually caused the alleged injuries.
In the complaint, the estate quoted Meek’s lyrics, arguing his songs incite violence — but Meek says that is not a legal claim against him. He also points out he had no foreseeable knowledge of the shooting.
Meek claims the lawsuit against him is a baseless attempt to hold him responsible for conduct that he had nothing to do with and is asking a judge to throw out the lawsuit.
The case remains ongoing.
