Kanye West, also known as Ye, has reportedly been sued for “forced labor and cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment,” according to a new bombshell lawsuit. Court documents shared by TMZ reveal that eight former employees have claimed that Kanye and his company Yeezy failed to pay them for long working hours and subjected them to “derogatory behavior.” The lawsuit details allegations of harsh working conditions and mistreatment within the company.

The suit mentioned that the “videos were accessible to minors among the staff,” who were developing the adult content app. The suit alleged that staffers were as young as 14. It read, “No guardrails were put in place to prevent the underage YZYVSN workers from working on Yeezy Porn, or to prevent them from being exposed to and being forced to view pornography to perform their work.”

Not only that, the suit also claimed that Kanye’s former chief of staff, Milo Yiannopoulos, referred to some staffers as “new slaves”. It stated that the workers were “forced to work through the night without pay or sleep”. With this new lawsuit, the employees are looking forward to “payment for unpaid wages and attorney fees, as well as damages for emotional pain”.

Additionally, the suit alleges that Kanye’s wife, Bianca Censori, sent inappropriate video content to staff members at the rapper’s company. This shocking accusation adds another layer of controversy to the claims against Kanye and his business practices.

The lawsuit has drawn significant attention, shedding light on the alleged mistreatment of employees and raising serious questions about the working environment at Yeezy. As the case progresses, more details are expected to emerge, potentially impacting Kanye’s public image and business operations.

The allegations of forced labor and cruel treatment are serious and, if proven true, could have substantial legal and financial repercussions for Kanye West and Yeezy. This lawsuit adds to a growing list of legal challenges facing the rapper, whose career has been marked by both immense success and significant controversy.
