Morgan worked for Fetty Wap during a tour and was contracted to be paid between five to ten percent of his performance profits. She found herself paying out of pocket for tour-related expenses.

Morgan took action after Wap made several public claims against her in the media. He was claiming that she had stolen from him, double-dipping, by charging his company as well as their clients. Morgan stated that these claims damaged her reputation and work prospects.
Reports also state that the two originally went to arbitration which ruled that Wap pay Morgan $160,000 in damages. He refused and asked for a trial.
Now, Wap does not only have to pay her $1.1 million but also has to post public retractions about Morgan on his private and business social media accounts. He also has to take out ad space in an “entertainment publication” to clear Morgan’s name.
Congrats to Morgan. Sorry Fetty, but it sounds like you F’d up and deserved to be sued!
