AceShowbiz – Megan Thee Stallion has been given permission to take her former record label bosses at 1501 Certified Entertainment to court in Texas.
Judge Robert Schaeffer has denied the label chiefs’ request to decide the cash wrangle via arbitration and he’s allowing Megan to take them to trial.
The rapper’s attorney, Richard Busch, told Billboard, “We are obviously very happy with the court’s decision and look forward to litigating this case.”
In her lawsuit, which was filed last month, March 2020, she alleged she had only been paid $15,000 despite generating an estimated $7 million for the label and asked for her recording contract to be voided.
Megan also accused Carl Crawford and his associates of distributing her mug shot from an arrest five years ago as part of a bullying campaign following her decision to sign a new deal with Jay-Z.
Crawford, a former Major League Baseball star, has yet to comment on the latest verdict but he previously accused the rapper of a “systematic breach of her contractual obligations.”
Last month, she was granted a temporary restraining order against CEO Crawford after she claimed he was preventing her from releasing new music.
