Rapper Meek Mill on Saturday accused the Cosmopolitan Hotel of being racist for denying him entry to the Las Vegas property and threatening to have him arrested for trespassing.

A video of his exchange with security personnel at the hotel posted on his Instagram account had more than a million views as of Sunday morning.

Meek Mill is seated in a vehicle outside the hotel and can be heard asking two men, “How can you tell me I’ll be locked up for trespassing?”

One of the men responded, “We’re a private property. At this time, with the information we have, we’re refusing to do business with you. We have the right to do that.”

Meek continued to question him, “You’re telling me I’ll be arrested if I don’t leave. If I walk upstairs to get something to eat, I’m going to be arrested? For what? For being a rapper?”

The man then said the hotel has “officially trespassed you.”

Mill asked again, “For what though? But what did you trespass me for?”

The man repeated, “We have a right to do that.”

Mill’s publicist told NBC News he was at the hotel to support DJ Mustard, who has a residency at Marquee Nightclub, and that he never got out of the car or entered the hotel.

Harvey Weinstein Reportedly Reaches $44 Mill Settlement After Celebs Including Lupita Nyong’o, And More Accuse Him Of Sexual Misconduct

Back in 2017, Since The New York Times and The New Yorker published bombshell reports last fall detailing decades of alleged sexual harassment and assault by producer Harvey Weinstein, dozens of women have come forward with similar claims against the movie mogul.

Eighty-five women have accused Weinstein of inappropriate to criminal behavior ranging from requests for massages to intimidating sexual advances to rape. Weinstein has denied the allegations.

 Lupita Nyong’o, Academy Award-winning actress, penned a lengthy column in the Times on Oct. 19 recounting her experience with Weinstein. “Harvey led me into a bedroom — his bedroom — and announced that he wanted to give me a massage. I thought he was joking at first. He was not,” Nyong’o wrote. She said Weinstein’s advances continued later during a dinner in New York. Weinstein issued a written response via Variety the following day. “Mr. Weinstein has a different recollection of the events, but believes Lupita is a brilliant actress and a major force for the industry,” the statement read.

Harvey Weinstein and his former studio have come to a tentative agreement in bankruptcy court to resolve lawsuits filed by several women who have accused him of sexual misconduct. The deal would be worth $44 million, sources told ABC News

“We now have an economic agreement in principle that is supported by the plaintiffs, the AG’s office, the defendants and all the insurers,” Adam Harris, an attorney for Weinstein, told a federal bankruptcy court in Delaware on Thursday.

The agreement, when finalized, would provide about $30 million to the plaintiffs, which includes not only those who have sued over sexual misconduct, but also former employees of the now-defunct Weinstein Company. The company filed for bankruptcy in March 2018. The company was purchased by Lantern Capital in May 2018 and renamed Lantern Entertainment.

The other $14 million would be for legal fees accrued by Weinstein’s associates also named in lawsuits.

The money would come from the studio’s insurance, not Weinstein personally.

He is still facing a criminal trial in New York with two women accusing him of rape and sexual assault. The case is set to begin on Sept. 9, and will last about a month, according to attorneys.

Tiger Woods and his girlfriend have been hit with a wrongful death lawsuit after a 24-year-old employee at the golfer’s flagship restaurant crashed his car after being served alcohol one night while at work as a bartender. Woods is being sued along with his girlfriend, Erica Herman, and his Woods Jupiter corporation that runs The Woods restaurant in Jupiter, Florida, by the parents of Nicholas F. Immesberger, who died on December 10, 2018 in a drunk-driving crash.

According to reports, The lawsuit, filed Monday, states “the employees, management and owners of The Woods over-served a young man they knew was suffering with the disease of alcoholism.” The suit also claims they “ignored Immesberger’s disease, they fueled it by over-serving him alcohol to the point of severe intoxication and then sending him out to his car to drive home. As a result of this negligence Immesberger crashed his vehicle and died on December 10, 2018, after leaving The Woods.”

Speaking at a PGA press conference in Bethpage, New York on Tuesday, Woods addressed the lawsuit.

“We’re all very sad that Nick passed away,” Woods said when asked about the case. “It was a terrible night, a terrible ending. And we feel bad for him and his entire family. It’s very sad.”

According to the complaint, Immesberger finished his shift at the restaurant at 3:00 p.m. and stayed around to drink for another three hours before he got in his car and crashed it while driving home. The lawsuit contends that employees at The Woods were aware that one month prior to his fatal crash he had crashed another vehicle while driving home and that one of Immesberger’s friends had told employees at The Woods to stop serving the 24-year-old alcohol. 

At the time of his death, Immesberger’s blood-alcohol level was .256, nearly three times the legal limit of .08. Immesberger’s parents, who are co-managers of his estate, are listed as the plaintiffs in the lawsuit.
