Kanye West, the Trump-supporting rapper who ran an almost invisible campaign for president, is facing an onslaught of multi-million-dollar lawsuits from former employees of his Sunday Service shows and the opera production “Nebuchadnezzar,” who say he either mistreated them or refused to pay them, the Christian Post reports.
The two class-action lawsuits were filed last summer in Los Angeles on behalf of 500 performers and 300 staff alleging that West violated California employment law. Employees and staff claim they were paid too little and too late and were not allowed rest time or breaks to eat meals. They also claim that they were made to stand for long hours and not provided shuttles to return home.
“They’ve got hundreds of people on board [the lawsuit] already, but they’re talking to many, many others, who want to be a part of it,” a source told the Christian Post. “People are very upset how they were treated, saying it’s their worst experience.”
