Spread the love

Kanye West is facing a lawsuit from his former assistant, Lauren Pisciotta, who alleges sexual harassment, breach of contract, and wrongful termination.

The lawsuit, filed on Monday, was first reported by TMZ and later confirmed by Rolling Stone, The Wrap, and US Weekly. The BBC has yet to verify the court filing or receive a response from West’s lawyer .

Pisciotta claims that during her two years working for West, he sent her lewd texts and performed sex acts while on the phone with her. She also alleges that after being fired in 2022, she did not receive a promised $3 million severance package

Pisciotta’s lawsuit states that she met West in 2021 while supporting herself through an OnlyFans profile. West hired her to work on his Yeezy fashion line and later as his personal assistant with a $1 million annual salary, requiring her to be available “24-7.” Initially, West was fine with her continuing her OnlyFans business, but in 2022 he asked her to delete her account for an additional $1 million. After she complied, she alleges West began sending her explicit messages and pornographic videos.

Pisciotta also claims that West masturbated while on the phone with her and, on one occasion, in front of her on his plane. Although promoted to Chief of Staff for West’s companies in September 2022, she was abruptly fired soon after, and her severance package was not paid. In addition to sexual harassment and wrongful termination, Pisciotta is suing for fraud, unpaid wages, and intentional infliction of emotional distress .

This is not the first time West has been accused of inappropriate behavior. Last November, employees at his Yeezy fashion line alleged he showed pornographic films during meetings and intimate photos of his then-wife, Kim Kardashian, during job interviews . West has acknowledged a “full-on pornography addiction” that he says began in childhood .

West has also faced other legal challenges this year, including allegations of racial discrimination by a former security guard at his Donda Academy and a lawsuit from the estate of Donna Summer for using a sample of her song without permission. Despite these controversies, West recently topped the US charts with his single “Carnival” and the album.
