TMZ says the couple got into "blowout fight" and Meek is trying to encourage Nicki to stay close to his Philadelphia home when he goes on house lockdown for at least 90 days for violating his probation on drug and gun charges.
In fact, the report says Meek wanted Nicki to live with him while he is on house arrest.
Nicki, though, isn't about to put her life on hold because her man couldn't keep his nose clean — Hence, the tension.
The fight is reportedly still unresolved.
Nicki has been in Los Angeles and her next trip to Philly isn't exactly known. Meek starts his house arrest on March 1, so he may be by himself when he begins his home solitude.
The couple apparently fights quite often, but this fight seems to be more serious than their others.
Nicki and Meek have officially been a couple since 2014. Nicki told GQ magazine last year that she fell for Meek while he was in jail.
Mill was arrested for drug and gun charges in 2008 and spent 18 months in jail before being put on five-year probation. In July 2014 he was sentenced to six months in jail for violating probation after not getting permission to book out-of-town concerts, and failing to provide his probation officer with a working phone number.
In 2013, he was also ordered to take etiquette classes.
In December, at a hearing for his probation violation, Nicki pleaded to keep him out of jail, testifying that she is a good influence on him.
"[The parole officer's] not going to be the one sleeping alone if he goes to jail. I am," she told the judge. "He's not perfect, but I can't believe how much he's changed."
Nicki said she'd also help Meek fulfill his required community service. "He doesn't have a lot of structure. He can be irresponsible," she said. "Since I've come into his life, I think I've been working on that a little bit… He's just getting accustomed to being an adult."
