But the rap superstar’s lawyer has today hit back at what he says are “salacious” claims.

“This is an employment claim for money — with no sexual harassment claim filed and with salacious accusations to attempt to embarrass her,” the rap superstar’s lawyer, Alex Spiro, told Page Six. “We will deal with this in court.”

Emilio Garcia claims in the complaint – filed in Los Angeles Tuesday and obtained by Page Six – that Megan, 29, had sexual relations with an unidentified woman while riding in an SUV during a tour stop in Ibiza, Spain, in June 2022.

The personal videographer, who had worked with the WAP rapper since 2018, allegedly witnessed the incident as he claims he was in the car at the time.

“Don’t ever discuss what you saw,” Megan allegedly told Garcia the next day, per the suit.

The cameraman told NBC News of the alleged incident, “I felt uncomfortable. I was kind of frozen, and I was shocked. At kind of just the overall audacity to do this right, right beside me.”

Garcia also claims in the complaint that Megan berated him during that same trip to Spain with comments like “fat b***h,” “spit your food out” and “you don’t need to be eating.”

“To hear someone who advocates about loving your body tell me these things, I felt degraded,” he told NBC News of the remarks the Savage rapper, whose real name is Megan Pete, allegedly made.

 
 
 
Garcia claims Megan then altered his pay from a monthly rate of $US4,000 to a “pay-per-task” system after the trip that resulted in him earning “significantly less.” He allegedly also “noticed a change in how he was treated and saw a decrease in the number of bookings he received,” per the lawsuit.

Garcia claims he suffered damages as a result of what he allegedly endured, including substantial losses in earnings totalling more than six figures in back pay, employment benefits, injuries, sickness, emotional distress, medical expenses and more.

“[He] endured a barrage of relentless sexual and fat-shaming comments plunging him into profound emotional distress,” according to the complaint, further claiming the videographer now struggles with “mounting anxiety, depression and physical distress stemming from the toxic work environment.”

Roc Nation terminated Garcia in June 2023, and per his attorneys, he believes it was “direct retaliation for his complaints about the ongoing illegal behaviour and failure to pay him properly.”

“Megan just needs to pay our client what he’s due, own up to her behaviour and quit this sort of sexual harassment and fat shaming conduct,” lawyer Ron Zambrano says in a statement to Page Six.

“Emilio should never have been put in a position of having to be in the vehicle with her while she had sex with another woman.”

The California-based lawyer, who also represents Lizzo’s harassment accusers, concludes, “’Inappropriate’ is putting it lightly. Exposing this behaviour to employees is definitely illegal.”

Megan’s reps did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment and the Hot Girl Summer rapper has not addressed the allegations online.

Aside from Megan, Garcia is also suing Megan Thee Stallion Entertainment, Inc., Hot Girl Touring, LLC and Roc Nation for harassment and other alleged labour code violations.
