Baby, I know Meg has to be drained the hell out when it comes to battling these court cases. Between the on-going saga with that leprechaun and this never-ending story with 1501… I can only imagine. Let’s get into it.
Just when you thought it was cooling dow, the label feud between 1501 Certified Entertainment and Megan Thee Stallion, their most notable signee, continues to escalate. Moreover, the Houston Hottie recently added fuel to the fire by claiming that label boss Carl Crawford is draining the entity of their funds without properly compensating Megan. Furthermore, she filed a motion on Thursday (April 13) sending said shots and revealing that the label’s primary account allegedly has less than $10,000 left in it. In legal documents obtained by TMZ Hip Hop, the star brought up various red flags regarding 1501’s financial stability and their inability to properly compensate its artists.
While the exact amount that was initially deposited in said bank account was redacted, Megan Thee Stallion alleged that it was in the millions. Not only that, but J. Prince, Gee Roberson, and Crawford are the only ones getting paid according to Meg. As previously reported, the 28-year-old is suing 1501 for royalties, demanding a release from the label as well. However, this recent motion relates isn’t just a doubling down on the alleged actors’ fault. It’s also a point of concern, as Meg fears that they won’t have any money to pay her if or when courts side in her favor.
This news is interesting given that Crawford recently welcomed the Stallion back to Houston for her first performance in months in an attempt to extend an olive branch. Still, many fans remembered his taunts and social media feuds with Megan Thee Stallion leading up to this situation. As such, many didn’t take kindly to Crawford’s message. ““We want the entire Community of Texas to help 1501 Certified Entertainment welcome Queen of the Hotties, Megan Thee Stallion, back to the City of Houston,” the statement read. In addition, it hinted at a new album and tour, and stated that the label fully supports Megan.
The month prior, Crawford somewhat apologized to her. “Unfortunately, me and Megan haven’t talked since 2019,” he stated. “We been going through what y’all seen online. That’s unfortunate, too, because I never wanted to go have a situation where I was going back and forth with her on the internet. I never had problems with Megan Thee Stallion, but this social media stuff turned it really sour. You take this social media stuff out of it, and we won’t have a problem. You won’t hear me mention Megan Thee Stallion’s name unless it’s a big-time interview.”
Well, apparently he’ll also be mentioning it when he’s explaining these funds. What do you guys think of this whole mess?
