Rapper Kanye West has some serious explaining to do with God after two lawsuits allege that the rapper broke strict labor and wage protocols during his series.
The first of the two lawsuits was filed on behalf of 500 performers who, according to the Daily Mail US, claim that they were forced to work for two days with no meals or breaks.
Michael Pearson, one of the performers representing the group in the lawsuit, said that they were reportedly told they would be paid $500 no matter how much time they worked.
The suits also pertain to the production of Kanye’s first “opera,” Nebuchadnezzar, at the Hollywood Bowl in November 2019. The performance allegedly violated California labor laws by not paying employees on time or ever and denying overtime, meal, and bathroom breaks.
According to The Sun, the suits were filed last summer in Los Angeles and involve around 800 performers and backstage crew who claim they were mistreated or not paid.
Lawyers are now tracking down other members of Kanye’s Sunday Service shows, and believe that the final tally will be closer to 1,000 people.
