Meek Mill Planning To Sue “Racist As Hell” Cosmopolitan Hotel

Published

on

Meek Mill was just trying to turn up in Vegas for Memorial Day weekend, but things went left when the staff at the Cosmopolitan Hotel/Casino threatened to have the rapper arrested for seemingly no reason at all.

It all started when Meek was told he could not step foot on the hotel’s premises … however, no reason was given. The “dream chaser” posted a video to his IG showing the Cosmo staffers telling him he could be arrested for trespassing if he even enters the hotel — although his plan was to just enjoy the pool area. “We are private property, at this time, with the information we have, we’re refusing to do business with you, we have the right to do that,” one staff-member can be heard saying.

After video of the incident went viral, The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas released a statement on Monday saying the safety and security of their guests were their top priority:

“The recent situation regarding Meek Mill related to a matter of security, not race, and any reports citing otherwise are false. We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive environment, with zero tolerance for discrimination. Under different circumstances, Meek Mill would be welcomed to the resort, but not at the compromise of his personal safety and the safety of our guests.”

According to CNN, the hotel also said, Las Vegas police had been called earlier in the day to manage a larger-than-usual crowd. The Cosmopolitan said the club knew about the rapper’s arrival in advance and security told the rapper he wouldn’t have access to the club because of capacity issues.

However, Meek is calling BS.

The rapper’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, has also stated, “The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because of capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false. In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one of the hotel’s restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless of location in the hotel premises. The Cosmopolitan’s conduct continues to be deplorable.”

Sounds like a lawsuit is a brewing…
