Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin had some strong words for a judge who recently ruled that Meek Mill couldn't travel to Toronto for the NBA team's playoff game on Saturday (April 27).
"Judge Genece Brinkley — I know you have a vendetta against Meek Mill and are obsessed with trying to control every aspect of his life, but did you really NOT approve him to go to rep the sixers in Toronto for the game?" Rubin wrote on Instagram Friday.
Mill was convicted on gun and drug charges in 2008. As part of his 12-year probation, the Philadelphia rapper is required to get Judge Brinkley's permission for travel outside of Pennsylvania, according to Rubin's social media post.
In 2017, Judge Brinkley sentenced Mill two to four years in prison for for probation violation. The rapper was released in April with the help of Rubin.

Judge Genece Brinkley – I know you have a vendetta against Meek Mill and are obsessed with trying to control every aspect of his life, but did you really NOT approve him to go to rep the sixers in Toronto for the game? As soon as the schedule came out, Meek asked probation for approval- they immediately approved! (FOR EVERYONE WHO DOESN’T UNDERSTAND, MEEK MUST STILL GET THE JUDGES APPROVAL PERSONALLY EVERYTIME HE LEAVES PA SINCE HE’S STILL ON PROBATION 12 YEARS LATER FOR A CRIME HE DIDN’T COMMIT) We filed w/your court as soon as the schedule came out since you need to approve travel to Canada! Since you didn’t respond to numerous phone calls and emails we even sent a lawyer to the courthouse today!! AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IF THIS HAPPENS TO MEEK, WHAT DO YOU THINK HAPPENS TO THE AVG PERSON(WHO CANT AFFORD GREAT LAWYERS ETC)ON PROBATION??
