Former MLB star Carl Crawford has responded to Megan Thee Stallion suing his record label 1501 Certified Entertainment.
During an interview with Billboard, Crawford responded to the lawsuit and allegations against his label for their business practices. He told Billboard, “She just has so many holes in her story, and it’s almost on some delusional type stuff. The bubble of Hollywood and her eight million followers has really clouded her head, because the stuff that she’s saying is not true. It’s a whole lie.”
Crawford also spoke about Jay-Z and Roc Nation’s shady business practices and how they impacted this situation:
“Their real plan was to get you out of my contract so they can sign you to Roc Nation. That’s all they want to do. We gave this girl a 60-40 split. Now go ask the artist about that. She got parts of her masters [the] first time. You think Jay-Z would have gave her part of her masters on her first deal with Roc Nation? F–k no. Then, she’s getting $100,000 a show and she don’t want to pay up. That’s what the issue was about. She signed with Roc Nation in August and decided she didn’t wanna pay me no more.”
