KANYE WEST SUED BY STAFF, PERFORMERS AFTER SUNDAY SERVICE SHOWS, MORE NEWS

Kanye West hit with class action lawsuits stemming from Sunday Services

Kanye West‘s seemingly imminent divorce from Kim Kardashian West isn’t the only legal trouble the rapper and designer is facing. In stories published on Friday, Jan. 29, British tabloids The Sun and the Daily Mail reported (per Page Six) that Kanye’s facing class action suits related to his Sunday Services and other performances.

The suits were reportedly filed in Los Angeles last year and revolve around hundreds of performers and production staff who detail long delays in payment, unexpected cuts in those payments and mistreatment on the job. Performer Michael Pearson, for example, alleges he was not allowed to take food or bathroom breaks and, like other performers, was made to stand for his entire, all-day shift before walking home “when a shuttle wasn’t provided.” There’s also a complaint from people involved in Kanye’s staging of the 2019 opera “Nebuchadnezzar,” over similar grievances including late payments and the denial of meal and bathroom breaks as well as overtime, according to The Sun’s sources. The Daily

Mail reports another lawsuit related to Kanye’s Sunday Services was filed by the tech company MyChannel Inc. In that suit, workers have alleged they were never paid for six months of work. According to the Daily Mail, Kanye could end up paying some $30 million in damages as the lawsuits progress.
