Meek Mill has once again violated his parole, this will make the fourth time he has had a parole violation in the last eight years. Mill’s violated his parole for his 2008 drug and gun conviction, sentencing for his parole violation was passed down on Friday.

According to ABC Action News, Meek Mill was found in violation of his parole in December. Mill stated that the cause for his violation was due to his erratic concert schedule. The Philadelphia prosecutors however linked the violation to Meek’s romance with Nicki Minaj. Minaj was found in the front row for Meek’s hearing on Friday, giving him all the support possible.

The violations for Meek’s parole included an unapproved trip to New York, the visit was for a benefit concert. Mill also made efforts to join Minaj as she traveled to various cities. One of the biggest reported violations, is that Mill turned in cold water instead of urine for a drug test that is a condition of his parole. The judge included this condition due to Meek’s history with painkillers.

A month ago, Brinkley, the judge assigned to Mill’s case, after the violation threatened to send the Philadelphia rapper to state prison. On Friday, before his sentence was passed down, Meek Mill pleaded with the judge to once again provide him with a second chance.

“I just want to ask you for a chance to turn that corner and be a changed man. You said you saw something in me… I want to prove you right. I believe I can be the bright star you intended me to be.”

There was 4 1/2-hour hearing for Meek’s parole violation. On Meek’s behalf, a life coach, a former judge, a charter school executive, and an R&B legend testified on Mill’s behalf. Regardless of her threat, Brinkley ended up sentencing Mill to 90 days of house arrest.

Meek Mill will be under house arrest at his Philadelphia residence for three months starting March 1st, he will also be fitted with an ankle monitor. Mill is also not allowed to record, perform or release music while he is under house arrest. As part of his sentence, Meek Mill will have to do daily community service with groups serving adults and not with a younger crowd that would be considered his fan base. That will be a harsh sentence for the recording artist, but it is better than being sent to a state prison.

Nicki Minaj did not say anything on Meek Mill’s behalf in the courtroom on Friday. Nicki was, however, front and center with her support, and at times it even seemed like Minaj was shedding a tear for her boyfriend. In December Nicki did speak to the judge on behalf of Mill, stating that she was assisting him to become more responsible and organized. In addition to his three months of house arrest Meek Mill has gotten an additional six years of probation Brinkley is intent on keeping a tight check on Mill since she gave him a break on his initial case.

Meek Mill has shown a change since he was in front of the court in December, as part of the change, Meek has visited a few high schools, including a local boys’ charter school. Meek urged the students to work hard, his speech was then followed by him allowing students to take photos with him. Nicki and Meek has also been seen at a lot of 76ers games since December when Brinkley ordered that Meek not leave the area of Philadelphia.
