AceShowbiz - Meek Mill accidentally tripped a referee when sitting courtside at the Philadelphia 76ers and the Phoenix Suns' game at Wells Fargo Center. Following the accident, the "Going Bad" rapper took to social media to issue a public apology.
At the Monday, November 7 game, Meek had his legs stretched nearly all the way to the sideline as Devin Booker dribbled down the court during the second quarter. At that time, referee Brent Barnaky ran alongside the Sixers' bench, causing him to fall on the floor.
It did not take Brent a long time to get back on his feet as he got some help from Sixers coach Doc Rivers. The incident was captured on TV and footage of the awkward moment has since made its way on social media.
After the game, Meek apologized to the referee by quoting Jay-Z's lyrics from "Empire State of Mind". He said, "Hov once said I be spiked out I can trip a referee lol I apologized to him that's brazyyy tho," adding several crying laughing emojis.
That aside, Meek recently blasted the 2022 BET Hip Hop Awards for having his baby mama, Milan Rouge, perform in a cypher at the event. "Ion like 'bet' got my bm tryna spit bars for attention/clout …it's like a setup embarrassment made to look like opportunity!" he argued at that time. "And I'm with the 'women hustler empowerment motion' but y'all drawin .. Pure manipulation."
Hours later, Meek explained, "I was voicing my opinion about a connection to my life and a company I been getting money wit .. .. all them women lit love to them!" He added, "Everything ain't networking especially if you say you getting money … stay true to your self 'phones' made us all get a lil lost even me!"
"I'm scared to rap and say the truth nowadays it's soooo vicious out here," the 35-year-old rhymer went on elaborating in a separate tweet. "this run I am tho…. it's like therapy for me!"
