Megan, girl, you in danger! At least it feels that way. After Megan Thee Stallion revealed the issues she’s having with her record label, and then went on to sue them, a veiled threat popped up on social media and it’s causing some concern.
A couple of days ago, the “Hot Girl Summer” rapper hopped on Instagram Live to open up about her displeasure with her label 1501 Certified Entertainment. After accusations of mishandled money and refusal to allow her to drop new music, Megan decided complaining wouldn’t be enough. The 25-year-old took her issues to the courthouse and sued the label and its CEO Carl Crawford. Fun Fact: he used to be a MLB star and he is one of Evelyn Lozada’s baby daddies.
But, before the suit was made public, Crawford hit publish on this IG post that seemed to be directly aimed at Megan.
Is it just us or are those hashtags menacing as hell? #PayBacksABitch? #MobTies?! Is it really that serious? And if it is, (which its not), is it worth threatening Megan’s life with “mob” interference??
Thankfully, Thee Stallion said she’s not scared of any threats and requested a temporary restraining order from the courts. Her request was granted and now 1501 can’t block her from releasing the music she was planning to drop on Friday, March 6th.
But, even though she scored a win, Crawford is saying she had nothing to complain about in the first place.
“She just has so many holes in her story, and it’s almost on some delusional type stuff,” he told Billboard. “The bubble of Hollywood and her 8 million followers has really clouded her head, because the stuff that she’s saying is not true. It’s a whole lie. Nothing is true that she said. Me being greedy and taking money from her, that’s crazy. I never tried to take nothing from her. The only thing we ever did was give, give, give. Now, she fell for the oldest trick in the industry: the conquer and divide theme.”
Crawford went on to say Meg’s deal was put together by her late mother and his business partner T. Farris, who allegedly “handled all the business.”
“T. Farris is the one. Her mom did the contract,” Crawford said. “I’m new to the business. I let this guy T. Farris run my whole business, because I knew absolutely nothing about it. Zero. So he wrote your contract up. I didn’t do it … She got the dude [T. Farris] right up under her. He’s the snake. He did the contract. They had the lawyers. How didn’t you read your contract? She signed two contacts. You signed one with me and 300 [Entertainment]. You mean to tell me, you, your mama and your lawyer didn’t read over that stuff every time? Stop lying. You wasn’t 20, you were 23 years old. You was a grown up. You’re just a liar.”
So, whose side are you on?
