Earlier today, it was reported that Meek Mill might be heading back to prison. Indeed, the MMG rapper appeared in court this morning (Dec. 10) for possibly violating his probation, which ultimately dates back to a charge he picked up when he was 19 years old. At least that's what Meek said, as he asked his fans to pray for him in a heartfelt Instagram post he shared before today's hearing. Reports now say Nicki Minaj showed up in court to testify on her boyfriend's behalf and that the hearing will resume next week with more witnesses, according to Philly's Fox 29.

Meek allegedly violated the terms of his probation by traveling outside of Philadelphia without receiving a proper travel voucher, confirms a reporter for The Philadelphia Inquirer.

The same reporter also mentioned that, during her testimony, Nicki told the judge that she was willing to help Meek with his probation. She went on to report that the next hearing will take place next Thursday, on December 17.

Going deeper into Nicki's testimony, TMZ reports that she made no mention of possibly marrying Meek. The pair's engagement was speculated after Nicki shared a picture of a massive diamond ring on Instagram last night. While Nicki stayed silent on the topic of marriage today, TMZ also claims that Meek's lawyer told the judge that his client is very serious about wedding Minaj, even pleading that a woman of her stature "would not marry a criminal or a bum."
Those are all the details for now. Check back with us next Thursday to see if the judge sends Meek back to prison. Watch footage of Meek and Nicki arriving at the Philly courthouse below.
