Did Kim Kardashian and Kanye West employ minors? Employees threaten to sue Kimye over 'unreasonable behavior'
The report reveals that the staff is said to be demanding 'a piece of the pay-out pie' for having to endure years of what they claim was 'unreasonable behavior'
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, who were once a power couple, are currently going through a divorce and unfortunately, their relationship continues to be riddled with issues. Going by the latest reports, it doesn't look like their troubles are going to go away anytime soon.
According to The Sun, there might be more legal trouble coming Kimye's way. The pair is rumored to be facing new problems with some employees threatening legal action over working conditions. This report comes four months after Kanye was hit by similar accusations from people in his Sunday Service choir who claimed he had "mistreated workers".
The report reveals that the staff is said to be demanding "a piece of the pay-out pie" for having to endure years of what they claim was "unreasonable behavior". According to the report, an insider alleged that more people have been encouraged to break their silence after Kanye's case. "Since members of his Sunday Service crew sued, other employees have been considering their options," the source said. "There’s apparently a potential lawsuit in the works against Kim involving multiple employees."
These are not exactly office-going employees. "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 added, "If a lawsuit is filed, then one issue would be how much control Kim and her staff had over them."
Now here is probably the most shocking part about this whole situation. Not only is the couple accused of mistreatment of the employees working at their home, but to make matters worse some of these employees were reportedly really young. According to The Sun, some of the employees are said to be teenagers. The source added, "If minors were employed and worked more than the maximum limit set by law, then there may be a case of child labour violations." Did Kim and Kanye employ minors? It doesn't look like any official steps have been taken as part of legal action.
Kim and Kanye announced their split this February. They have four children together and have a whopping $2.2B fortune — 43-year-old Kanye is reportedly worth a staggering $1.3B and 40-year-old Kim is worth $900M. Kim and Kanye's relationship had been strained for a long time before they announced their divorce to the public. Several reports will vouch that their relationship had been on the rocks for a while, with issues between them often televised on 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.
