Word around the rumor mill was that Melli signed under Tory to be petty toward Meek, but she’s clearing the air and her name!
Earlier this week we reported that Melii just released her new project ‘PhAses’. Well it looks like the singer found herself in the middle of a little controversy regarding the new label she just signed to.
Melii is fresh off of Meek’s “Motivation Tour” and she received what one might call mentoring from Meek. He also included her in his “Intro” music video as well as featured her in the track “Wit The S***s (W.T.S)” off his album Championships. It looks like Meek may not have been feeling her decision to sign to Tory Lanez’s One Umbrella, which he made very clear in a since-deleted IG comment. “This a corny a** move on both y’all end,” the Philly rapper said.
Before she issed an official statement, there was a screenshot of an alleged comment she made going around on Twitter. Check it out below:
@Melii reveals that she didn’t sign with Meek Milk because he allegedly asked to have sex with her. Also he claimed she was “Boujie” and “too vocal” when speaking up for her career. He compared her behavior to Nicki Minaj #meekmill #melii #torylanez #nickiminaj pic.twitter.com/vrGeQ2F9vD

Melii then issued her statement, explaining her decision to sign with Tory over Meek.
“It’s easy to judge n argue about things that aren’t true n seem a certain way because of social media… but not once have I bashed meek or ever plan on doing so,” she stated. “It was addressed n I tried to hold a conversation that wasn’t an option that was given to me so I moved on n got offered support from another team, I never intended to snake anyone. If anything I tried my best to work around many things that put me in uncomfortable situations. My decision with going with Umbrella was based [off] an offer that was already there from years ago n wanting to better my craft n where I felt i belonged.”
Amidst all the drama Melii then kept it cute classy, posting a video on Instagram celebrating her album’s release and thanking the people who helped her get to where she is now, including Meek Mill and Rihanna. YAS hunty. Way to keep it classy and rise above. We STAN an unproblematic queen! We wish her nothing but success with her latest project.
