Posted On : October 30, 2016

Just like the late Notorius B.I.G. once said, ‘the more money you make you more problems you get, straight up.’Today that applies to former Xscape singer turned songwriter/”Real Housewives of Atlanta” star, Kandi Buruss, who probably has her lawyers searching for a way to “xscape” this lawsuit one of her fired employees has just dropped on her.

A brotha by the name of Johnnie Winston III (pictured below) has just made claims that Kandi did not pay him for two years worth of overtime and apparently he waited two years to file suit apparently. Here is what was reported via AJC:

A former employee of…Kandi Burruss and her business Kandi Koated Entertainment has filed a lawsuit, alleging she failed to pay him overtime pay over two-plus years. Johnnie Winston III, who describes himself as a caterer and event planner on his Instagram page, said he worked for Burruss from August 3, 2013 until he was terminated February 29, 2016. He did not say why he was let go. The lawsuit was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Georgia on October 27.

In the lawsuit, he said he regularly worked seven days a week, well in excess of 40 hours a week. Over time, he said he worked anywhere from 10 to 20 hours a day, seven days a week. He alleges that he was not paid overtime for those extra hours. In the lawsuit, he said he worked as the manager for the Kandi Factory, her studio, then became event planner in early 2014, followed by a title change to production coordinator. He helped with her wedding to Todd Tucker, her Bedroom Kandi conventions, Business Woman’s Masterclass and taping of her Kandi Koated Nights broadcasts.

Winston said he requested overtime pay three times and was denied each time. The lawsuit does not specify his hourly pay or how much money he thinks he is owed.

Well, in the meantime, Kandi appears to have no worries, in fact, she just posted this to Instagram thanking her fans for getting her page to 4 million followers…

Like we said, she ain’t got no worries. Hopefully everything works out for the best for both parties.
