The Houston hottie and the former MLB player have been at odds since late 2019 when she signed a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation, apparently without the knowledge of 1501.
AceShowbiz –Megan Thee Stallion has received an apology from her label boss, 1501 Certified Ent. CEO Carl Crawford, following a lengthy and bitter legal battle. Carl, accompanied by Kai “Verse” Tyler, the brand-new president of the label, issued his apology during a new interview.
“Me and Megan, we haven’t talked since 2019,” he told TMZ. “We’ve been going through, I guess, what you guys see online and it’s unfortunate because I never wanted to have a situation where I was, you know, going back and forth with her on the internet.”
Carl went on to blame social media as saying, “I never had any problems with Megan Thee Stallion. It’s just the social media stuff, it turned really, really sour. You take this social media part out of it, we don’t have a problem.” He added, “I’m done with that.”
“You not gon’ hear me mention Megan Thee Stallion name in the media unless I’m doing something like this,” the former MLB player continued. “You not gon’ see me texting or making a post or doing any of that stuff that would cause social media to go crazy.”
Meg and Carl have been at odds since late 2019 when the Houston hottie signed a management deal with Jay-Z‘s Roc Nation, apparently without the knowledge of 1501. Months later, she filed a lawsuit against 1501 accusing the Houston-based label of blocking her from releasing music and refusing to renegotiate her contract, the terms of which Roc Nation had raised red flags about.
She filed another lawsuit against 1501 in February 2022 asking a judge to declare that her 2021 project “Something for Thee Hotties” qualifies as an album and therefore counts toward fulfilling her contract. The label countersued the following month, with Carl calling the project a “bulls**t a** mixtape.”
Following the release of her sophomore album “Traumazine” in August 2022, Meg amended her lawsuit to seek $1 million in damages while claiming her aforementioned project had successfully satisfied her contract with 1501, granting her exit.
While their legal battle appears to still be unresolved, Carl expressed his remorse over his falling-out with Megan, admitting he made “mistakes” while also vowing to stop speaking ill of her in public.
Speaking with TMZ, Kai also insisted that 1501 has no animosity toward Megan, Jay-Z or Roc Nation and defended Carl’s link-up with Tory Lanez as the naivety of an inexperienced music executive. “At the end of the day, [Carl] doesn’t know him,” he said. “Once again, a guy that doesn’t know the business of music and that politics side … ‘Don’t stand with this player because the Red Sox might not like it later.’ He doesn’t understand that’s how we move in the business of music.”
Meg has yet to respond to Carl’s apology. The “Hot Gil Summer” hitmaker has been keeping a low profile since Tory’s shooting trial began in December but she showed up earlier this month to celebrate her 28th birthday.
