Rap mogul, Dr. Dre, is being sued by his highly paid housekeeper — like $1,870 a week highly paid — for claiming to be relieved from her services in an unfair manner.
Sagustume says that Dr. Dre (aka Andre Young) and his wife Nicole Young didn’t stop her fellow house staff members from bullying her during the 13 months she was employed.
Sagustume claims that the other house staff members, which consisted of two female cousins of the Young family, bullied her by unfairly delegating their duties on to her. Sagustume claims that the extra work and harassment caused her anxiety, physical pain and injury and also caused her to have trouble breathing, which led to a panic attack and put her in the hospital.
Sagustume is seeking compensation for punitive damages from discrimination as well as not being paid properly for the overtime and extra work she put in followed by missing meals and earned vacation.
Dr. Dre is classified as Hip Hop’s first billionaire after he sold Beats by Dre to Apple for $3 Billion. Dre also had a smash box office hit with the N.W.A. biopic “Straight Outta Compton”.
Daily Mail reports that Apple, which has made Dre an executive, said the company believed in the rapper’s sincerity.
‘Dre has apologized for the mistakes he’s made in the past and he’s said that he’s not the same person that he was 25 years ago,’ Apple said in a statement.
‘After working with him for a year and a half, we have every reason to believe that he has changed.’
