Nicki stayed away from the controversy surrounding Meek’s legal troubles, except for when she spoke about it briefly during an interview on Zane Lowe’s Apple Beats 1 show. “I can’t badmouth Brinkley because I met her personally,” she said. “I know what she said to us, Meek knows that and I know that. But I wouldn’t wish jail on anybody.” So what will come of all this when they spend the weekend together at the same venue in September?
