Judge Genece Brinkley fell under heavy scrutiny after delivering an arguably unjust sentence to Philly rapper Meek Mill for a violation of parole.

Judge Genece Brinkley is reportedly being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for possible relationships she might have in Philly - including to a local music mogul she allegedly asked Meek to sign with - as well as a possible "extortionate demand" ... according to the New York Post.

A source told Page Six of the Federal Bureau of Investigation interest in the case, "The feds have an interest in the judge and [her] potential relationships. Undercover agents have been in the courtroom monitoring the Meek proceedings since April 2016", says the source.

On Monday evening (Nov. 13), Meek Mill supporters, athletes, and peers flocked to the Criminal Justice Center in Philadelphia to protest the embattled rapper's recent sentencing.

The judge who sent Meek Mill to the clink for at least another two years is starting to look extra amusing in the light.

Lawyers for jailed rapper Meek Mill asked the judge who sent him there to take herself off the case Tuesday, court records show.

"So this practice of jailing people when you feel like it against the recommendation of your own constituents and in this case it was a district attorney and it was his probation officer-that's got to stop". This year, he allegedly was involved in a fight at a St. Louis airport and was arrested for reckless driving in NY this August.

Brinkley also reminded Mill of the night she actually tried to verify that he was feeding the homeless, part of the community service she ordered.

The same article, however, quotes Mack denying any personal contact with Brinkley.

Philadelphia 76ers co-owner Michael Rubin has written a letter to the judge. 'I want you to know that I am personally invested in him so that he can help others'.

But Joe Tacopina, a lawyer for Mill based in New York City - who was not in the private meeting - has said Brinkley asked Mill a year ago to record a version of a Boyz II Men ballad, "On Bended Knee", and to mention the judge in it.

The FBI did not respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment in time for publication.
