Megan Thee Stallion has denied that she stole designs for her Fashion Nova collection.
The “WAP” rapper was accused by a designer of having stolen her work for the debut Fashion Nova collection.
A designer named Aazhia on Instagram last week alleged that Megan used her unique TLZ L’Femme dress design to create the Chase the Bag Shoulder Pad Mini Dress with a similar long cloth draping in between the legs.
“IMA break this down real simple! My dress was stolen and used in this Megan X FN Collab! was I told? No! Was I compensated? No!” she wrote in the lengthy caption. “I’m very much so taken back by the the lack of respect for another black woman! There is this tired narrative that the black woman is so disrespected, but we do it to each other!!!!”
However, the “Savage” rapper denied the allegations during an interview with “The Morning Hustle” podcast.
“A lot of times people say that they talked to somebody from my team,” said Megan. “I don’t know what year that was. What are you talking about? And a lot of times they won’t even bring me—they don’t tell me who they talkin’ to. I’ll probably never hear you… But, it’s been a dress that has been done a lot over the years. So, I feel bad that people’s initial reaction would be to just come at me like, ‘Oh you a Black woman and you stealing from Black women.’ I’m like damn, hold on. I don’t know you.”
“It’s a way to come at people,” the rapper continued. “If it would have been a real misunderstanding, I wouldn’t have had a problem with saying, ‘Oh, I’m sorry sis. Let me check my stylist, don’t do that, it’s not right. I would have had the dress taken down, whatever the money made from the dress, I would have gave the money to the girl if that was really something that she felt like was stolen from her. But I don’t feel like that was anything.”
