Kim Kardashian could be dealing with a lawsuit from her staff, some of whom are allegedly teenagers, just four months after her ex-husband Kanye West’s employees made a case against him.
According to The Sun, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star’s staff have reportedly threatened legal action for “unreasonable behaviour,” after crew members from Kanye West’s Christian rap show Sunday Service sued him four months ago for similar claims.
“There’s apparently a potential lawsuit in the works against Kim involving multiple employees,” an insider source told the publication.
“They are believed to be domestic workers employed at her home who allegedly may have been misclassified as independent contractors instead of employees.”
The source also claims that some of these “domestic workers” may be underage, telling The Sun: “If minors were employed and worked more than the maximum limit set by law, then there may be a case of child labour violations,” they said.
It’s unclear what the next step in this legal battle is or even if it will escalate into one.
Kanye West was recently dealt with a pair of class-action lawsuits from his staff that claimed he not only mistreated them but allegedly failed to pay up to 1,000 performers and stage crew during his Sunday Service gigs.
According to the Daily Mail, the allegations stem from a November 2019 performance at The Hollywood Bowl in Los Angeles, where staff claim Kanye “violated strict employment laws… failed to pay hundreds of employees, or give them overtime, meal and rest breaks.” These two lawsuits could leave him with $30 million in damages to pay.
Back in January, we learned that Kim Kardashian and Kanye ‘Yeezy’ West were getting a divorce. The news came after the Jesus is King rapper spent only a day at Kim’s week-long private island 40th birthday bonanza—y’know, the one she did during a pandemic and that became a huge meme.
Neither Kim Kardashian or Kanye West have publicly commented on the allegations against them.
