An attorney representing Megan Thee Stallion has issued a statement responding to “salacious” claims made by a photographer in a sexual harassment lawsuit filed this week.

Alex Spiro released a statement to People magazine, saying the “Savage” rapper denies all of the allegations.

“This is an employment claim for money — with no sexual harassment claim filed and with salacious accusations to attempt to embarrass her,” Spiro said. “We will deal with this in court.”

Emilio Garcia, who worked as the rapper’s personal photographer from 2018 to 2023, filed the suit on April 22 in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

Garcia alleged he was forced to watch Megan have sex with another woman as he sat next to them in a moving SUV in Ibiza, Spain.

The lawsuit said the alleged incident happened “on or around June 2022,” while the rapper was on tour.

The complaint claimed the next day Megan told Garcia, “Don’t ever discuss what you saw.”

Garcia additionally said Megan fat-shamed him multiple times, allegedly calling him a “fat b–ch” and telling him “you don’t need to be eating.”

The complaint also accused Megan of underpaying Garcia for his photography services, and said he was misclassified as an independent contractor to avoid California labor laws for employees.

It additionally claimed the rapper barred him from working for anyone else, yet allegedly denied the cameraman overtime pay and breaks mandated by California labor laws.

Roc Nation fired Garcia in June 2023, according to the complaint.

The lawsuit said his termination was in “direct retaliation for his complaints about the ongoing illegal behavior and failure to pay him properly.”

The complaint claimed Garcia now suffers “mounting anxiety, depression and physical distress stemming from the toxic work environment.”

The photographer is seeking unspecified damages.
