Megan Thee Stallion Fires Back At ‘Salacious’ Harassment Lawsuit

Megan Thee Stallion denies “salacious” allegations from former cameraman who says he saw her engage in sex with another woman.

Megan Thee Stallion is firing back at a former employee’s “salacious” lawsuit accusing her of harassment and creating a hostile work environment.

The Grammy award-winning rapper had her lawyer Alex Spiro respond to a shocking lawsuit filed on Tuesday, April 23, that accused her of mistreating a former staffer after he allegedly saw her engage in sexual activity with another woman while trapped inside a car.

“This is an employment claim for money — with no sexual harassment claim filed and with salacious accusations to attempt to embarrass her,” Spiro told Page Six. “We will deal with this in court.”

Videographer Emilio Garcia filed his legal complaint Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court accusing the “Savage” rapper of fostering a toxic workplace among other shocking claims. Garcia claims the hostility started after the alleged incident in the vehicle when Megan ordered him to “don’t ever discuss what you saw.”

The “HISS” rapper allegedly berated, fat-shamed, and mistreated Garcia following the vehicle incident. The “harassment was so severe or pervasive” that it created a “hostile, abusive work environment” that made Garcia’s “working conditions intolerable,” the suit said.

“I felt uncomfortable. I was kind of frozen, and I was shocked. At kind of just be the overall audacity to do this right, right beside me,” he told NBC News.

During the trip, Garcia says Megan fat-shamed him, called him a “fat bi*ch” and told him to “spit your food out” because “you don’t need to be eating.”

“To hear someone who advocates about loving your body tell me these things,” Garcia said. “I felt degraded.”

Garcia says shortly after returning from the trip, his pay structure was changed from a monthly stipend to a pay-per-task format where he had to submit invoices despite his continued long hours. He also alleges to have received fewer bookings with Megan following the Ibiza trip.

Garcia says the experience left him with a loss of wages, employment benefits, physical sickness and injuries, and emotional distress. He is suing for six figures to be compensated for unpaid wages with interest, employee benefits, statutory and wage penalties under California labor laws, and punitive damages for costs he incurred, including attorneys’ fees.

“What I learned throughout the years is that, especially coming from an from an office environment, is you know, there’s no HR department in the entertainment business,” Garcia said.

“So if you don’t know that you’re being done wrong, you don’t really know how to advocate for yourself until you start asking maybe you start asking your peers who have representation, they have agents, they have management, they have attorney. So I just really just want to encourage people to advocate for themselves.”
