492097127

Snoop Dogg has been hit with a lawsuit from three of his former bodyguards who say they were underpaid and overworked for years.

Rapper’s former security employees, Torrey Mitchell, Donnel Murray and ryan Turk, filed lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Friday, May 30. They all state that they were fired earlier in 2014, after they complained about the working conditions.

The legal documents show the man accusing the hip-hop mogul of evading California laws which require employers to pay overtime after the eight hours of mandated work.

Furthermore, the trio now claim they could only sleep for three hours a day while the star was on tour. They say they were not given proper breaks, and that the track of their working hours was never kept.

Mitchell, Turk and Murray also say their supervisor, Al Gittens, security company Gerber & Co. and Beach City Music in the lawsuit. They say the rapper made them run errands for him and his family. That included driving to “recording studios, clubs, concerts, red carpet affairs, and his separate apartment used for entertaining his many female acquaintances”.

The plaintiffs are seeking $3 million (£1.87 million), including overdue wages, general, compensatory and punitive damages, plus all the legal fees.

Iconic musician will make a Maine appearance this summer, when he takes the stage at the Portland Expo on Thursday, July 10.
