Megan Thee Stallion and her legal team have responded to the lawsuit filed against her by Emilio Garcia, her former videographer. Garcia’s suit alleges harassment and a hostile work environment, among other complaints.

“This is an employment claim for money — with no sexual harassment claim filed and with salacious accusations to attempt to embarrass her,” said Megan’s lawyer, Alex Spiro in a statement to Page Six.

Allegations Against Megan Thee Stallion

According to Garcia, he was in a car with Megan in Ibiza, Spain, when she engaged in sexual acts with another woman. He claims he was unable to leave the locked car while it was in transit, leading to embarrassment and distress. Megan denies these allegations, calling them “salacious.”

Garcia also alleges that Megan fat-shamed him, adding to his discomfort. He claims that Megan told him, “don’t ever discuss what you saw,” after the incident. Following these events, Garcia says he was subjected to verbal harassment and a toxic work environment, ultimately leading to his firing in June 2023.

“We will deal with this in court,” said Spiro.

Garcia’s attorney, Ron Zambrano, stated, “Megan just needs to pay our client what he’s due, own up to her behavior and quit this sort of sexual harassment and fat-shaming conduct.”

The lawsuit alleges that Garcia’s working conditions became intolerable due to the harassment and that his firing was a direct retaliation for his complaints.

Despite the ongoing legal battle, Megan Thee Stallion continues to focus on her music and career.

Her label, Roc Nation; Hot Girl Touring; and her management company are also named in the lawsuit. Garcia’s attorney claims the firing was in direct retaliation for his complaints about the hostile work environment.
