Megan Thee Stallion asks for $1 million in relief from record company

The legal battle between Megan Pete, who goes by the name Megan Thee Stallion, and her record label is apparently not going to end any time soon. According to the latest reports, Megan is stepping up her legal war with 1501 Certified Entertainment and is seeking a hefty amount of damages.

According to court documents obtained by PEOPLE, the Grammy Award winner’s lawyers requested $1 million in aid from the record company and also claimed that her last two albums “Something for Thee Hotties” and “Traumazine ” met the requirements of his “unreasonable”. ” Contract.

“Over the past two years, Pete and 1501 have shared a long and tortured history of disputes over Pete’s recording agreement, including the inadmissibility of the agreement in its original form, as well as disputes over the release of Pete’s music,” the complaint read.

“The two were able to resolve some of the disputes through the issuance of several temporary restraining orders against the defendants in this Court. But a new dispute has arisen requiring further assistance from the Court,” the complaint continues.

“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,” the attorneys added in the lawsuit. .

Meanwhile, label attorney Steven M. Zager recently told the publication that the rapper still owes the label an album and that “Something for Thee Hotties” doesn’t meet their criteria for an album, as it contains archival material and spoken word.

“We’re evaluating Traumazine,” he told PEOPLE while adding, “But there’s no way Something for Thee Hotties would qualify as an album because that term is defined in their record commitment in their various contracts with 1501.”
