MC Ren & T.I.'s Entourage Mentioned In Universal Music Worker's Marijuana Lawsuit

A security guard at Universal Music Publishing Group's Santa Monica office calls out the drug use of several artists in her lawsuit.

A woman who works as a security guard at Universal Music Publishing Group's Santa Monica headquarters has become so fed up with the marijuana-smoking ways of various artists that she’s decided to sue the Universal Music Group-owned UMPG, Universal Protection Services, the management of the building she works in, and more.

Billboard.com reports that the security guard was a first-hand witness to drug use (primarily marijuana) from MC Ren, singer Adam Levine, and the entourage of Atlanta rapper T.I.

In the complaint, the woman states that "artists and high-profile celebrities began visiting the premises with drugs in hand and oftentimes offering drugs to Plaintiff, which she refused."

On top of various instances of drug use from visiting artists, the security guard also claimed that she had issues with T.I.’s security team when she asked that they move their vehicles. When she informed one of the rapper’s bodyguards of her request he responded, "I gotta be able to get this boy outta here if a shootout or something goes down."

The woman is seeking an unspecified amount in her lawsuit. When asked about the lawsuit they’ve been hit with, a spokesperson for Universal Music referred to it as being “absurd.”

"While we cannot comment on the allegations between the plaintiff and her employer, we can say that the allegations as they relate to Universal Music Group are absurd," said a company spokesperson.

    M.C.REN? What the hell is he doing in the Universal Offices? Also, Is this the only security guard job in the city? I wonder if she's also mentioning the rock artist on the Label that come in with cocaine and heroin?

    Serious question....why are black American hip hop artists all criminals. Is it something in their DNA or something. Their ego expects the public to buy their music but at the end of the day they are common thugs.

    "she has every right to work in a smoke free environment" True, but she doesn't call the shots, therefore how can she expect to get a huge payday when all she had to do was quit.

      true. but i knew a lot of imam's in the middle east that smoked hashish. i spent my teenage years (13 to 19) living in the middle east. it is haram to put it in your body if you use it as a HABITUAL drug if you use it in a shammanic or more so a spiritual way to clear thoughts and expand self knowledge its a different story. i was schooled on that early because around the time i lived there the use of hashish was so prevalent that kids my age were being taught to use it for it's other and ancient ways i suppose rather than brainwashing them with stupid westernised propaganda on some "reefer madness" shit. cause whats even more haram is to LIE so they rather gave us the truth about the plant rather than make up some demonic over exaggerated excuse for us to avoid it.

    Sounds like somebody just trying to get paid to me, If she had that much of problem with the smoke then she should probably complain or QUIT... simple ...

    "if you're at work trying to do your job and your being exposed to second hand marijuana smoke against your will she has every right to sue and get a little change" You act like they tied her up and blew smoke in her face lol Unless she has some kind of medical condition that spiraled out of control over breathing second hand weed smoke her payday is going to be zero.

    Can she even prove that is was marijuana? They can say they were smoking salvia, flavored tabacoo or shisha. Get with the times "marijuana is everywhere, where were you brought up?" - Eminem Drug Ballad

    I am anti drugs myself, but what is the basis for the lawsuit here? Does she sue the police and the city next because they have not eliminated drugs. I guess its getting harder and harder to come up with get rich schemes.
