We were going to write that the guys was "suing the pants off him," but that would've been too easy! LOL!
Anyway, a new lawsuit is being brought up against Tommy Lee by his former assistant for defamation and failure to pay overtime. The famed ex of Pamela Anderson and Motely Crue drummer apparently treat the guy pretty terribly during the almost six years that they worked together and now, the guys is coming forward.
The plantiff, Michael Sullivan, had his lawyer explain in documentation:
"Lee found Sullivan so useful that he required him to stay at his residence so that he was always available for service. However after requiring Sullivan to stay at the home and obtaining the benefits of Sullivan's presence in his home, in 2009, Lee began deducting $1,000 from his wages every month for ‘rent.’”
OMG! What?! You forced the guy to live in your house and then you charge him rent?! What a lousy move that was!
What is worse is that Lee took things even further, according to Sullivan, docking his pay if he was even a few minutes late for work, or if Tommy was angry with him about something. Now, he wants $50K to make up for all the crap Tommy put him through.
Yeah, we would say he's owed that much. Knowing Tommy's track record, he probably wasn't the easiest guy to live with!
