Megan Thee Stallion Faces Lawsuit from Former Cameraman Alleging Harassment and Hostile Work Environment

Emilio Garcia, a former cameraman for hip-hop sensation Megan Thee Stallion, has taken legal action against the artist, alleging harassment and a hostile work environment. Garcia filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court, claiming that his employment with the Grammy winner was marred by mistreatment and degradation.

According to the lawsuit, Garcia began working with Megan Thee Stallion in 2018 as a personal cameraman, eventually quitting his other job to work full-time for the rapper until June 2023. However, his tenure with the artist was far from smooth sailing.

The crux of Garcia’s complaint revolves around an incident that allegedly occurred during a trip to Ibiza, Spain, in June 2022. Garcia recounts being trapped inside a moving vehicle with Megan and three other women after a night out, during which Megan and one of the women engaged in sexual activity beside him. Following this event, Garcia claims he was warned by Megan not to discuss what he witnessed.

Moreover, Garcia alleges that Megan subjected him to fat-shaming insults, calling him a "fat bitch" and making derogatory comments about his eating habits. This treatment, particularly from someone who promotes body positivity, left Garcia feeling degraded and demoralized.

Upon their return from Ibiza, Garcia states that his compensation structure was abruptly changed from a monthly flat rate to a pay-per-task system. Despite this change, he claims he was still expected to provide the same level of service. Additionally, Garcia alleges that he experienced a decrease in bookings and was treated differently by Megan following the Ibiza trip.

The consequences of these alleged actions, Garcia claims, have been significant. He asserts that he has suffered substantial financial losses, including more than six figures in back pay, as well as damages for emotional distress, medical expenses, and more.

Garcia’s lawsuit paints a troubling picture of his time working with Megan Thee Stallion, alleging not only professional mistreatment but also personal degradation. As the legal proceedings unfold, the case shines a spotlight on issues of workplace harassment and the responsibility of celebrities to uphold standards of conduct within their entourage.

Megan Thee Stallion's representatives have not yet responded to the allegations.
