Megan Thee Stallion denies harassing a cameraman in Ibiza

Megan Thee Stallion has denied the accusation of a camera operator who has denounced the artist for sexual harassment and abuse. Megan – on behalf of her lawyer – assures that the cameraman's lawsuit responds to a “work claim for money” and that it does not include a real “sexual harassment lawsuit”, only “obscene accusations that attempt to humiliate her.”

The camera operator, Emilio Garcia, worked with the rapper from 2018 to 2023. Garcia claims that Megan Thee Stallion subjected him to a hostile work environment during his work period with the artist in which he had to face a “barrage of degrading comments and “fatphobics” that “plunged him into deep emotional anguish.”

Specifically, Garcia describes an incident that occurred in Ibiza, in June 2022, in which he allegedly ended up locked inside a car with Megan Thee Stallion and three other women. Garcia claims that Megan began having sex with one of the women while he couldn't leave the car, and that she told him: “Don't even think about talking about what you've seen.”

García says that after the trip to Ibiza his salary structure suddenly changed and that he began to receive fewer assignments from Megan until he was finally fired in 2023. Garcia accuses the artist of leaving him “without basic insurance coverage” and depriving him of “essential medical care” and is asking for six-figure financial compensation for non-payments, interest, unpaid overtime and other benefits.

Megan Thee Stallion has recently achieved a number 1 single in the United States with 'HISS', her diss track directed at Nicki Minaj, among others.
