A for¬≠mer cam¬≠era¬≠man for rap¬≠per Megan Thee Stal¬≠lion has filed a law¬≠suit against her, claim¬≠ing he was sub¬≠ject¬≠ed to harass¬≠ment and a hos¬≠tile work environment. 

Emilio Gar­cia, the cam­era­man, alleges that in 2022, Megan and three oth­er women entered an SUV in Ibiza, Spain, where Megan pro­ceed­ed to have sex with one of the women right beside him.

Gar¬≠cia recount¬≠ed his dis¬≠com¬≠fort dur¬≠ing the inci¬≠dent in an inter¬≠view with NBC News, stat¬≠ing, ‚ÄúI felt uncom¬≠fort¬≠able. I was kind of frozen, and I was shocked. 

At kind of, just the over¬≠all audac¬≠i¬≠ty to do this right, right beside me.‚ÄĚ He claims that the fol¬≠low¬≠ing day, Megan asked him if he was in the car, and upon con¬≠firm¬≠ing, she alleged¬≠ly warned him not to dis¬≠cuss what he had seen.

In court doc¬≠u¬≠ments obtained by NBC, Gar¬≠cia fur¬≠ther alleges that Megan began to treat him dif¬≠fer¬≠ent¬≠ly after the inci¬≠dent, claim¬≠ing she made dis¬≠parag¬≠ing remarks about his weight and even called him a ‚Äúfat bi**h.‚ÄĚ Gar¬≠cia shared his feel¬≠ings of degra¬≠da¬≠tion, espe¬≠cial¬≠ly con¬≠sid¬≠er¬≠ing Megan‚Äôs pub¬≠lic advo¬≠ca¬≠cy for body positivity.

The law¬≠suit asserts that the ‚Äúharass¬≠ment was so severe or per¬≠va¬≠sive‚ÄĚ that it cre¬≠at¬≠ed an ‚Äúabu¬≠sive work envi¬≠ron¬≠ment‚ÄĚ for Gar¬≠cia, mak¬≠ing his ‚Äúwork¬≠ing con¬≠di¬≠tions intol¬≠er¬≠a¬≠ble.‚ÄĚ Gar¬≠cia con¬≠sid¬≠ered quit¬≠ting due to the alleged mis¬≠treat¬≠ment and insuf¬≠fi¬≠cient pay but stayed for a gig in June 2023. 

How­ev­er, he was lat­er informed by Roc Nation that his ser­vices were no longer required.

In his inter¬≠view with NBC News, Gar¬≠cia empha¬≠sized the impor¬≠tance of self-advo¬≠ca¬≠cy with¬≠in the enter¬≠tain¬≠ment indus¬≠try, which often lacks a human resources department. 

Gar¬≠ci¬≠a‚Äôs attor¬≠ney, Ron Zam¬≠bra¬≠no, called for Megan to ‚Äúpay our client what he‚Äôs due, own up to her behav¬≠ior and quit this sort of sex¬≠u¬≠al harass¬≠ment and fat sham¬≠ing conduct.‚ÄĚ

Gar¬≠cia is seek¬≠ing over six fig¬≠ures in dam¬≠ages, includ¬≠ing unpaid wages, inter¬≠est on unpaid wages, unpaid over¬≠time wages, statu¬≠to¬≠ry penal¬≠ties, puni¬≠tive dam¬≠ages, and costs incurred, such as attor¬≠neys‚Äô fees.

As the legal pro­ceed­ings unfold, the case rais­es ques­tions about work­place ethics and the treat­ment of employ­ees in the enter­tain­ment industry.
