Megan Thee Stallion seeking $1 million from record company 1501 Certified Entertainment over alleged 'bad faith' agreement
Megan Thee Stallion is asking for $1 million from the record label 1501 Certified Entertainment in a Harris County, Texas court.
Lawyers for the Houston native, 27, in documents reviewed by People Magazine, requested the company pay $1 million. They said that her most recent pair of albums, Something for Thee Hotties (released last October) and Traumazine (released earlier this month), rounded out the requirements of a contract she described as 'unconscionable.'
Attorneys for the musical artist, whose full name is Megan Jovon Ruth Pete, said in legal docs that 'over the past two years,' Megan and the label have had 'a long and tortured history' of disagreements in regards to her contract and the release of her music.'The two have been able to resolve some of the disputes through the issuance of multiple temporary restraining orders against Defendants from this Court. But a new dispute has arisen requiring further assistance from the Court.'Megan's legal team said that 1501 Certified Entertainment said that Something for Thee Hotties did not qualify as an 'album' and did not meet the 'Minimum Recording Commitment' for the contract.They added that '1501's new position, taken months after the album's release, is clearly a ruse in an effort to try to take further advantage of Pete, at great expense and in bad faith.'
1501 Certified Entertainment lawyer Steven M. Zager of King & Spalding LLP told the outlet that the label's 'belief is she owes us one more album, at least.'
