Celebrity News And Gossip: Cosmopolitan Hotel Claim Meek Mill Was Denied Entry Due To Capacity Not Racism
This past week, Meek Mill was denied entry into the Cosmopolitan Hotel and they even threatened to call the police on him for trespassing. Later, they said the reason he was denied entry was because of a previous altercation he had on the grounds with a security guard. The “Going Bad” rapper’s lawyer has since asked for the video of the said altercation to be presented. However, the hotel’s latest statement, reads Meek was denied due to capacity and not the color of his skin.
Meanwhile, the Cosmopolitan’s latest statement doesn’t align with anything they had previously said regarding the incident with the rapper this weekend. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas released a statement Monday saying the safety and security of their guests were their top priority. the statement read:
“The recent situation regarding Meek Mill related to a matter of security, not race, and any reports citing otherwise are false.”
“We pride ourselves on providing an inclusive environment, with zero tolerance for discrimination. Under different circumstances, Meek Mill would be welcomed to the resort, but not at the compromise of his personal safety and the safety of our guests.”
The hotel added that a club on the premises had reached capacity Saturday in accordance with the Las Vegas Fire Marshal code.
Meanwhile, Meek’s publicist, Didier Morais, has provided CNN with a statement on behalf of Meek Mill’s lawyer, Joe Tacopina, addressing the hotel’s claim about capacity concerns. Tacopina’s statement read:
“The assertion that the Cosmopolitan denied Meek because of capacity concerns at Marquee Dayclub is outright false.”
“In the recorded video, Meek also inquired about getting a meal at one of the hotel’s restaurants, yet their security team continued to deny Meek and said he would be arrested for trespassing regardless of location in the hotel premises. The Cosmopolitan’s conduct continues to be deplorable.”
