Meanwhile, 1501 filed a motion to deny Megan Thee Stallion’s claims last month.
The motion alleges that Smith is not an employee of the registry, saying instead that he is an independent contractor. They said he worked with 1501 artists but had nothing to do with the label, Radar online reports.
However, Crawford says Megan has a case of mistaken identity. He says that “Darien Smith” is confused with “Darrian Smith, who are two completely different people, according to Crawford.
“The allegations that 1501 had ‘maliciously cooperated’ in a ‘discrediting campaign’ [Megan]’ how stupid they are [Megan’s] refused to listen to 1501 when he told her a long time ago that she was after the wrong Darien Smith,” the label told the service.
