According to a lawsuit filed by Jay Gore, Lauryn Hill verbally abused members of her band during her 2007 European tour.
Gore, who played guitar, also claims she failed to pay him thousands of dollars after playing the tour.
Hill exhibited the type of behavior for which she had gained public notoriety which contributed to a hostile work environment. After shows, Hill would demand that the musicians and road support personnel attend meetings where she would engage in a person-by-person critique and berating. At one point, Hill made a statement in front of the tour personnel to the effect that 'I can't believe I am paying you fools, you should be paying me.'
Gore is asking for more than $20,000 in return for his alleged abuse.
All right, guys, we're not saying she's a total angel, but WHY do people wait so long before filing a lawsuit? This was back in 2007? C'mon!
