NO! We HATE to hear this about her!
Celine Dion and her husband, Rene Angelil, are currently being sued by their former warehouse manager, Keith Sturtevant, who claims that while he worked at the couple's home in Hobe Sound, Florida, the couple "improperly and illegally designated [Sturtevant] as an exempt employee."
Translation: they didn't have to pay him overtime despite the fact that he worked more than 40 hours per week on a regular basis! Gah, what?!
Furthermore, despite his manager title, he maintains he was treated as no more than a handyman, and he "did not have the power to hire or fire employees."
And the worst part?!
According to the legal documents, he isn't the only employee on whom they pulled this, and he is demanding all of his back overtime wages since he started in 2009.
We sincerely hope that if this is true, the diva and her husband take care of this immediately!
They make FAR too much money to be treating their employees this way!
Such a shame! Here's hoping there's some sort of explanation behind all of this…
