fashion police writers lawsuit underpaid

Fashion Police may be one of E!'s top rated shows, but it certainly doesn't come across that way in their writers' paychecks!

On Wednesday, the writers filed a claim with the California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement, accusing their employer of violating state laws by not paying them overtime.

One writer said:

"The most I’ve been paid for a show has been for eight hours of work. In reality, I put in anywhere from 12 to 32 additional hours on each show – time I should have been compensated for. On top of that is all the unpaid overtime we regularly work. There are some shows where we are required to work 16-hour days, from 2:30 p.m. until around 5:30 the following morning."

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."

Kelis Allegedly Stiffed Her Hou$ekeeper!

If this is true, it is beyond tacky!

It seems that Kelis' housekeeper claims that the singer stiffed her out of $900 in wages. And unfortunately for her, the maid cannot sue since she is an illegal alien.

The housekeeper made $150 a day for her work and cleaned one day a week. Kelis fell six weeks behind in her payments and owes her employee $900.

The woman is trying to find a lawyer and explore her legal options to file with the California Labor Commission.

Just pay the lady!
