Meek Mill may be happy enough in his relationship to have possibly proposed to girlfriend Nicki Minaj, but he sure wasn’t happy with his car and the dealer he got it from. And when Meek took to social media to share his displeasure, it began a legal battle that Meek just may not have expected.
The rapper is facing some legal trouble after failing to meet the demands of the car dealership he supposedly “defamed.”
According to WKBW, “MEEK MILL has been hit with a lawsuit for allegedly defaming bosses of a car dealership on social media.”

It all started back in March, when Meek sent his manager to pick up his Rolls Royce Ghost from Euro Motor Sport, Inc. According to TMZ, though, the keys weren’t handed over at first because Meek “still owed $15,000 on the $200,000 whip.”
An incident started between Euro Sport’s owner, Gene Morales, and Meek’s manager. Morales ended up “agreeing to hand off the car for a mere $8,000.”
Apparently that wasn’t enough, though. Meek was unhappy with the incident and, according to TMZ, posted on Instagram, “Make sure you never buy no cars from #eurosports selling expensive cars with salvaged tittles.”
According to Morales, this has damaged his business’ reputation and in general, his business with celebrity clients after Rick Ross reposted Meek’s Instagram post.
Morales first asked Meek to take down the Instagram post and pay a quarter of a million dollars in reparation. Meek’s response?
As seen on TMZ, in an e-mail to the owner, Meek said, “You guys still selling cars with salvaged titles. Shaaaaaaaaaady.”
While it is a somewhat humorous response when faced with serious charges, Meek is now slapped with the defamation lawsuit.
It is unclear just when it happened, but Meek has finally pulled down the original Instagram post calling Euro Sports “thieves” and claiming they sell “lemons,” but at this point, it won’t likely help get him out of hot water.
This isn’t the first time Meek has been slapped with a lawsuit. Just a short while before this lawsuit, Meek was faced with a lawsuit from his landlord after throwing a party at a mansion he rented for a week.

Meek threw a party for approximately 1,000 people the weekend of the Grammy’s ending with a fight where police were called. When Meek signed the original week-long lease, the rental agreement specifically stated that Meek could have “no more than SIX people on the property.”
According to legal documents, the landlord claimed that “the place was left trashed with broken furniture, broken glass, destroyed landscaping — and even a broken trampoline.” He is suing Meek for “breaking the lease, for damages, and for roughly 994 people trespassing.”
Despite his recent happy announcement, it appears that Meek Mill just can’t keep himself out of trouble.
