Dr. Dre Being Sued By Former Housekeeper
Dr. Dre is reportedly being sued by Raquel Sagustume, a former housekeeper, who claims she was bullied and harassed, reports New York Daily News.
In the suit, Sagustume claims she was bullied by other housekeepers, two of which were cousins of Dr. Dre. Furthermore, she says other staffers felt threatened by her skill level and unfairly delegated their own work to her, causing her both physical strain and injury.
Sagustume was receiving a $1,870 per week salary while working for Dre for more than a year, but says she wasn't properly paid for overtime, missed meals, and was unable to use her earned vacation.
She also says she was hospitalized following a panic attack that resulted from the bullying.
Sagustume is suing Dre and his wife Nicole Young, claiming she still suffers from anxiety, depression, and stress. She's seeking punitive damages.
