A Texas judge has denied a motion filed by Carl Crawford's 1501 record label to lift Megan Thee Stallion's restraining preventing him from blocking her album release on Friday.

Crawford, CEO of 1501 Certified Entertainment, filed an emergency motion on Wednesday to dissolve a temporary restraining order preventing him from blocking her music release.

The former Los Angeles Dodgers star argued that she had no right to take the label to court in the first place, because he still has an ironclad contract that she signed.

But District Court Judge Beau A. Miller denied Crawford's motion, leaving the restraining order in place.

The judge, who must have been swayed by Megan's ample ASSets, stated simply, "the album at issue may be dropped for distribution beginning March 6, 2020."

Judge Miller also turned his attention to music honcho J. Prince, who sent subtle threats to Jay-Z and Roc Nation via social media, putting them on notice that he won't tolerate them trying to shake down 1501.

In an Instagram post on Wednesday, J. Prince called out New York labels for stealing artists, which he says is a common practice.

"This is the same technique of the culture vultures. I didn't allow this to happen to me when New York and LA record labels attempted to take my artists - so they labeled me as malicious for fighting back. I didn't allow it then so I damn sure ain't gonna allow it to happen to 1501 records or any other independent record labels that I'm associated with."

Prince addressed Megan directly for allegedly running to Roc Nation and turning against Crawford who put her on.

But the judge ordered J. Prince to refrain from making "threatening or retaliatory social media posts or threats against" Megan, her agents, or her representatives.

The judge also slapped a gag order on Megan and Crawford, who both took to social media to air out their side in the grievance.

Both parties are prohibited from "communicating with the media concerning the underlying issues in this case without court approval."

In a tearful video on her Instagram stories on Sunday, Megan, whose real name is Megan Pete, complained the contract was one-sided and unfair when she signed it as a naive 20-year-old.

But Crawford hit back, telling Billboard magazine that Megan is a fraud and a liar. He said she was not the innocent 20-year-old signing her first record deal.

He insists she was 23 when she signed, which makes her 28 now, not 25 as she claims.

"You wasn't 20, you were 23 years old. You was a grown up. You're just a liar," Crawford said.

Lira Galore filed a restraining order against her baby daddy, Quality Control Record's CEO Pierre "Pee" Thomas. In the document, obtained by TMZ, Galore, who was born Tylira Mercer, said Thomas is threatening and unpredictable, even when he's in a courtroom.

Mercer wants a judge to order Thomas to stay away from her and their infant daughter.

Mercer filed docs seeking a temporary protective order against Thomas for threatening her last week during a court hearing in their custody battle for 9-month-old, Khaleesi Mercer.

Mercer is best known for her brief engagement to rapper Rick Ross (pictured).

Last month Mercer accused Thomas of violent abuse, claiming he beat her during her first 8 months of pregnancy with his child. She's seeking at least $15 million for her injuries.

Mercer says in new docs that because of the past alleged violence, she's terrified of Thomas. She claims Thomas kept trying to speak to her during a hearing, including approaching her in an "intimidating nature" and attempted to get her phone number.

She claims while they were sitting across from each other in a conference room, he kept glaring at her and made her extremely uncomfortable. She says he got caught taking pictures of her on his cell phone.

Mercer says when she and her lawyer tried to leave the room, Thomas blocked the doorway and harassed her. She says they had to call a deputy to escort her safely out of the building.

Mercer claims the ordeal was traumatic for her and says even her lawyer "for the first time in her legal career, felt unsafe in the courtroom."

She's asking for a court order to keep Thomas 100 yards away and to not have any contact with her or their child.

Thomas denies he's been abusive and has called Mercer's claims a "15 million dollar shake down."

The funeral for Atatiana Jefferson, the Dallas pre-med student who was killed by a cop in her own home, is set for Thursday. The funeral was postponed for a week due to a family dispute.

Jefferson, 28, was fatally shot through her bedroom window on Oct. 12 when she peeked out after hearing a prowler in her backyard.

Dallas County Officer Aaron Dean, 35, resigned from the police force before he could be terminated.

Jefferson's funeral was set for Saturday, Oct. 19, but a judge granted a restraining order to her stepfather, Marquis Jefferson, who argued that he would suffer "immediate and irreparable injury" if the funeral went on as planned.

Jefferson's aunt, Venitta Body, told reporters that Marquis Jefferson is not Atatiana's biological father. Body said Marquis Jefferson has not spoken to family members. She continued with the funeral service planning without his input.

"He's the father of the deceased," Walter L. Irvin, his lawyer, said on Friday. Irwin presented a birth certificate signed by Jefferson. "They would not let Mr. Jefferson participate in burial arrangements. That's why we had to seek an injunction."

On Monday, Dallas County probate court judge Brenda Hull Thompson held a closed door meeting with both sides of the family. Afterwards, she issued a gag order to prevent the family from discussing what was said in the meeting.

Jefferson's funeral is set for Thursday at 11 a.m. in Dallas' Concord Church, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Prominent civil rights activists, including Rev. Al Sharpton, will speak at the funeral.

Former Dallas Mavericks player Harrison Barnes and his wife, Brittany Barnes, paid 90 percent of the cost of the service, and Philadelphia Eagles player Malik Jackson paid the rest of the expenses.

According to the judge, the restraining order was denied because the matter was already addressed in a lawsuit filed by Lozada against Chijindu earlier this month.

Law enforcement and the courts are wary of reality stars abusing the system for their manufactured TV drama.

According to TheJasmineBrand, the two women have argued on social media for months.

Lozada took legal action, filing a lawsuit against Chijundu for defamation.

Chijindu responded on social media.
