Meek Mill Is Reportedly Losing Out on Starring in a Will Smith Movie Because of His Probation Violation

Meek Mill’s probation violation is affecting more than just his travel schedule, according to new reports this whole ordeal has cost him not only thousands of dollars, but also an opportunity to star in a Will Smith-produced movie.

Page Six has exclusively learned that Mill was meant to travel to Hollywood, Calif., in November regarding a role in “12 O’Clock Boys,” an upcoming movie by Smith’s Overbrook Entertainment.

It’s based on the story of the infamous West Baltimore illegal-dirt-bike riders who were the subject of an indie documentary that debuted at SXSW in 2013. Mill was to play the role of “Wheelie Wayne,” sources said.

But Mill missed a scheduled trip to LA for the film because he had to take a urine test as part of his probation just four days after a previous test.

Another high-profile gig he’ll miss, because of the court order to keep him in Philly till February, is a Las Vegas concert with Minaj at Drai’s, for which sources said Mill would’ve made $140,000. We’re told it was the first step in getting him a residency, which is now also in jeopardy. “He’s at a defining moment in his career,” said a source. “And they are prohibiting him from work.”

Judge Genece Brinkley ruled that Mill was in “technical violation” of his probation, but has not decided on any punishment.

Sources close to Mill counter that he’s the one who’s been responsible, calling his parole officer numerous times to arrange scheduling for work, but his calls go ignored. They also claim a violation of his urine tests came because of creatine in one case and another when a lab tech threw a urine sample in the trash and it couldn’t be tested.

Meanwhile, TMZ reported that during a Thursday hearing when Meek’s lawyer asked him about an Oscar nomination for his song on the “Creed” soundtrack, “The DA quickly interrupted, ‘He’s in consideration! He’s not nominated.’?” But either way, with the Oscars on Feb. 28, Mill could be missing those as well.

Well, that’s what happens when you don’t follow the law.
