Looks like Jay-Z is getting hit with yet ANOTHER lawsuit, except this one isn't for stealing samples, but seems like a little heavier of an issues…
He's being sued by the Workers Compensation Board of New York. He owes $18,000 for not paying worker compensation insurance for three months in 2009 — to a lot of employees! We're talking cooks, maids, drivers, and domestic employees.
Apparently it was just a lapse, though, as he squared things away but just didn't pay the outstanding 18 grand.
We hear that Jay's camp says it's a clerical error and that he doesn't owe anything, but the court has since ordered him to pay up, so we're not so sure that's true!
We're just glad nobody got hurt during that period of not having insurance!
