Megan Thee Stallion gets restraining order against her record label for AMAs
Rapper Megan Thee Stallion has obtained a restraining order against her record label, 1501 Certified Entertainment, and its distributor 300 Entertainment, as part of a settlement with American Music Award.
Documents obtained by TMZ revealed that Megan alleged that 1501 made “threatening and retaliatory” gestures to prevent her from using her own music in the AMAs to be given out next Sunday.
This comes amid a contract war with the label. While the rapper thinks she’s fulfilled the terms of her contract and should be a free agent, 1501 insists she still owes more recordings.
Megan didn’t elaborate on what 1501 and/or 300 Entertainment allegedly said or did to spoil ABC’s broadcast of the AMA, but a judge heard enough to grant the temporary restraining order. Both companies are now barred from interfering with the use of his music at the awards ceremony.
The rapper is up for favorite hip-hop artist, and voting for the award ends tonight.
A court hearing where the label will have the opportunity to tell its side of the story is scheduled for Tuesday, 2 days after the AMAs air.
