Meek Mill is planning to file a lawsuit against a Las Vegas hotel that barred him from entering the respectable establishment over the holiday weekend.

Meek, whose real name is Robert Rihmeek Williams, is moving forward with his racial discrimination lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan hotel after security refused the rapper entry.

Meek, who is on probation stemming from a gun charge, was in Las Vegas with his entourage over the Memorial Day weekend.

The 32-year-old Philly rapper and his entourage planned to attend DJ Mustard's gig at the Cosmopolitan's Marquee Nightclub on Saturday. But when they showed up at the hotel they were met by security staff who told them they were not welcome there.

According to WENN.com, as soon as they arrived they were told they'd be arrested for trespassing if they set one foot out of their vehicle.

After Meek complained about his ordeal on social media, the hotel claimed he was barred because he caused a physical altercation the last time he was there.

But Meek's lawyer Joe Tacopina is demanding proof of the past altercation, and now tells TMZ.com he will seek "heavy monetary damages" for "lying and humiliating Meek," and will file a lawsuit this week.

"I'm going to take this place down because of what they did," said Tacopina.

Tacopina alleges Las Vegas hotels have a list of Black rappers who are barred from entering their respectable establishments because they cause trouble wherever they go.

The hotels fear they will lose business if they allow rappers into their premises.

Tacopina named Yo Gotti and BlocBoy JB as two rappers who are not allowed in certain Sin City establishments.

According to TMZ, hotel officials also said they refused to allow Meek and his crew in because the nightclub was filled to capacity.

However, that statement was contradicted by a video obtained by TMZ that showed a security guard saying the rapper was being denied entry due to a previous incident.

The footage shows Meek questioning the decision and asking when any altercation took place. The staffer told the rapper to have his team pursue his grievance with the upper management as it was "bigger" than the staff member.

Another video obtained by TMZ shows the "Issues" rapper asking if he could grab a bite to eat in the hotel, but again being told not to step one foot out of his vehicle.

Last month, Meek was upset that a Philadelphia judge refused to allow him to leave the country to attend Game 1 of the NBA playoffs series between the Toronto Raptors and his beloved Philadelphia 76ers. The 76ers went on to lose the series to the Raptors who now face the defending champions Golden State Warriors in the NBA Finals.

    Meek just salty. Lol
    Clubs do this all the time and it has nothing to do with him being black.
    He needs to let it go and save these lawyer fees.

  • WhoKnew

    I get so tired of raptors (black raptors in particular) acting as if they are above the law and committing crimes and then when they get treated differently from people who act like they have good sense and carry themselves the same way then they want to cry racism. STHU and carry your ass on somewhere with that bullshyt. Y'all bring this on yourselves.

    It's just like the dine and dash people. All black folk don't dine and dash. We had a birthday celebration for my mom and the tab came to $750 and we left a $250 tip. There were some people at the table who couldn't pay but we didn't tell them to get up and leave without paying. What was important that they were there and we told them to come anyway and we would cover their meal and drinks. Now the dine and dash are going to make it hard for other diners who happen to be black. Like damn. Do we even try to do better as a race of people?

    Under this current administration (AG won’t GAF), you will see more and more of this, low key! I bet Post Malone wouldn’t be denied entry?

    This thug-life scenario has been financially exploited and glorified far too long, while they ride high, our hoods violent and dangerous as they singalong to complete nonsense WITH EXCEPTIONS!

  • WhoKnew

    Seriously. I think he's embarrassed that he don't have clout and stature like that and is just trying to save face by pretending to file a lawsuit.

  • Tinytoon

    He was trying to spend money where he's not wanted. Then had the nerve to say that he bring millions of dollars to any place he visit. ?

  • Panther Charleston

    Hold all the way the hell up. You go around saying the word nigga at rapid-fire-speeds. You sing and dance about how dangerous you and your friends are. You constantly in the news on some bullshidd than wanna cry discrimination when no one wants you around? Boy, puhleeze. I wouldn't want you even near the front lawn of my mama's house, let alone at a swanky hotel where mofos making the bread that take care of they families! Getcho ti'ed azz on way from here! ??

  • bb1812

    Tacopina: "I'm going to take this place down...". Is this that serious? All business establishments have right of entry refusal policies. Meek's just embarrassed This is stupid.

  • Panther Charleston

    Witty enough. Just perfect. ?

  • CookieMobster

    If DJ Mustard was playing and there was even 1 other black folk in there which I,know there was, how the entire hell does he plan to sue for racial discrimination??

  • Vonn

    He gets a new judge on his case... And he's already up to more foolishness.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    The only time this nicca wants to speak on social injustice is when it effects him or his crew of bullys...it might not be Meek doing all the fighting but his crew is nothing but a bunch of uneducated simps whose necks extend to suck Meeks dyck when they need money...he needs to stfu...sorry yall but I cant stand this cod faced fool...

  • the guest

    Life can make you an activist.

    Happens to black people throughout history.

    Too many black people don't know the offenses they are entitled to sue for. Slavery gave black folks a high threshold for offense and disrespect. Whereas, a white person will sue for any offense and disrespect.

    Good for Meek Mill to take a stand. Vegas can be very racist and perhaps his stand will make for better treatment for the next black person.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    He should sue.

    But, at the same time blacks, specifically celebrities, need to stop patronizing these racist institutions. They don't like you.

  • Junkanoo

    Why travel with so many people in tow its not like he needs a hair and makeup person too many people its a recipe for disaster . Some of his crew probably wild out knowing their friends with a celebrity an act a fool. If they caused drama the last time they were there then don't act all surprise now.

  • B.Loveitt

    As he should and YES Vegas and a lot of other spots do the same! But hey racism ain't all that bad in 2019 soon to be 2020...right? ?

    I'm not so sure if hotels have those rights of refusal policies ..... Meek might have a shot here to win this lawsuit ...

    Messy people take mess wherever they go.

  • Shawty

    And you not having an after party in our establishment

  • Shawty

    How, if they full...they full.

  • WhoKnew

    I really don't think it's about having black people inside their hotel and casino venues. I'm sure there are a ton of black people who visit Vegas and their $$$$ prolly ain't that long but they get in because they act like they have good sense and not like they're riff raff.

    Look-ED, when this raptor Weak Mill jumped the fence at Jurassic Park and escaped, this ninja just thought he could go out and ack a fool and gain entrance to any place he wanted to "hop in to" but they told him to go kick dinosaur rocks so now him pissed.

  • WhoKnew

    ...cuz he does...

  • Bossy704

    I don't like how he disrespected Nicki after the break up. He could come in my party either.

  • Shawty

    Yes clubs do it all the time. Didn't we just read not too long ago that a girl wanted to sue Future cause she was not let in the club because he said he didn't want to see any plus size women?

  • Shawty

    He stay looking sweaty and because we all know that sweat stinks....that means so does he.

  • WhoKnew

    Stinky "STFU" Mills is having separation anxiety from being out of prison too long and feels he needs to go back to prison. Seems like he's working on his return.

  • datjerk

    If it was anybody other than problematic Meek, is probably support this.

  • KcoolMuziq

    I'm attending a ULTRA private screening tomorrow
    of a movie produced by Will & Jada Smith for their Overbrook Productions franchise. That has Meek Mills as one of the stars in it. Should be interesting.

  • KLove

    I'm not really sure he has a case here LOL

  • bb1812

    Doubt it. Every business has the right to refuse service. They can't discriminate against protected classes (race, religion, age, sex etc.) The "reports" are that the place had reached capacity and or they didn't allow Meek in due to a prior incident. Not bc of his race. The only person bringing up racial discrimination is Meek. Unless he has other evidence to reveal, I doubt he has a case. The hotel could also simply state that they do not allow felons in their place of business as their reason of refusal.

  • Banka

    IF that was the case, but they would say anything at this point to cover their ass....

  • Ryan

    After they said he couldn't come in why did he ask if he could still eat there?? If those people don't want you there why do you still want to give them your money? Hell there's a Popeye's down the damn street!!

  • chaisun

    I’ll be there also. ?????

  • Jordan’s Memory

    I don't blame them. These Rappers are huge liabilities if something pop off and an innocent bystander get hurt on their property. I'm sure the owner has a clause where he can refuse entry to any patron he chooses for whatever reason. But to say Racial Discrimination I think that's a stretch. Wasn't he going to see a Rapper perform? If they didn't want ninja's in there then they wouldn't have aloud dude to perform either. Black folk always crying about shitt when they part of the problem. but he just don't get it. smdh

  • Jordan’s Memory

    Because he probably does. He looks like she smells like weed and 5 yr old clothes that haven't been washed.

  • Prince Jarmajesty II

    Meek always looks so unbathed to me...

  • Lorna

    Considering you can get banned from a casino for SUSPICION of counting cards, if you caused a whole ruckus or have a track record of doing it elsewhere...
