Dr. Dre & Wife Being Sued By Ex Employees Demanding Money For Reportedly Harsh Treatment
Hip Hop pioneer, Andre ‘Dr. Dre’ Young, is a beast when it comes to music production and business. Years after his time in the iconic rap group, N.W.A, he found further solo success with 1992’s, The Chronic, and 1999’s, 2001. Dre’s been a hitmaker for the majority of his career, though his character has come into question on numerous occasions.
Details Of Employee’s Lawsuit
Although Dre has been credited for helping launch the careers of fellow rappers, Snoop Dogg and Eminem, he’s also had strong allegations thrown at him for past bad behavior. Now those allegations have extended over to people on his payroll, as has been revealed by his former employees in a new lawsuit.
The Blast reports that Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, are being sued by their former employees, Ines Cornejo and Diana Brenes, for shocking work conditions and very little pay:
Cornejo says she worked for the Youngs from September 2015 through September 2018. She says her position was as a laundress — and apparently the family had a lot of laundry to do because Cornejo says she was provided only a few minutes to eat during her shift.
She also says her meal breaks were often later in her shift and were frequently interrupted or cut short entirely. Cornejo also claims she was not given rest breaks or paid for the rest breaks she was not given, as the law dictates.
Brenes, who worked for the Youngs from 2010 until 2017, has made similar claims. However, Brenes claims her meal breaks were cut short, by the Youngs request, to immediately begin working again. The two women are suing the Youngs for failure to provide meal and rest periods, as well as several other labor violations. Dre and his wife Nicole, have yet to comment on the allegations.
