Now seeing the proverbial egg that is on their face … the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas will publicly apologize to Meek Mill for threatening him with arrest if he stepped onto hotel grounds … and Meek will accept the apology.
According to TMZ, the Las Vegas hotel will issue a “significant public apology” expressing regret and accepting fault when Meek was told last Saturday to leave the hotel … or else.
Reported previously, Meek’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, prepared a lawsuit he intended to file this week against the hotel, claiming racial discrimination and defamation. Tacopina claims there is a blacklist for black rappers at the hotel, but hotel sources say that’s BS.
Interestingly enough, the lawyer for O.J. Simpson reached out to Tacopina, saying O.J. had been mistreated by the hotel as well. Back in November of 2017, hotel staff kicked “The Juice” out after the staff claimed he was intoxicated and unruly. He was permanently banned from the grounds.
Snoop Dogg’s people reached out and claimed mistreatment by the hotel.
So to prevent this story from getting truly out of control … Cosmo has decided that is not the hill they want to die on. Smart move
Now to what triggered this apology … Meek and his crew showed up to attend a party at Marquee Saturday — located inside the Cosmo — but security wouldn’t let them in. In a video that went viral, the security guard tells Meek he can’t come in because of a prior incident … but won’t give Meek any specifics on what happened.
The Cosmo later released a statement contradicting themselves by saying Meek was denied entry because Marquee had reached capacity, and they informed him before he even arrived he wouldn’t be allowed inside. However, Meek’s attorney, Joe Tacopina, says the ban was solely based on skin color.
