Lauryn Hill Sued For Stiffing A Band Member Out Of Thousands Of Dollars

The lawsuit also claims that the former Fugee was verbally abusive towards band members on a 2007 tour.

A former band member of Lauryn Hill’s band has filed suit against the singer for more than $20,000, claiming that he was stiffed out of thousands of dollars after going on tour.

According to TMZ, guitarist Jay Gore claims that Ms. Hill was verbally abusive to band members on her 2007 European tour. After each show, she “would demand that the musicians and road support personnel attend meetings where she would engage in a person-by-person critique and berating. [...] At one point, Hill made a statement in front of the tour personnel to the effect that 'I can't believe I am paying you fools, you should be paying me.'"

He also claims that she "exhibited the type of behavior for which she had gained public notoriety which contributed to a hostile work environment."

His lawyer, Nicholas Andrea, explains that other band members have been “reluctant to stand up for their rights” and that “this lawsuit gives them a voice as well.”

    Crazy as she is with that NASTEEE stretched out cunt... She's less crazy than Dre-- at least she's able to function, however, unethically, as a performer.

    I just paid $23,98 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $37,59 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $677 which only cost me $72,13 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentStart.com

    LOL at the first clown who said this bitch is a legend. Nigga, Santa Claus is a bigger legend than this crazy, delusion, fraud ass bitch. I guess she thought marrying a Marley would make her certified. LOL at all the people she had fooled as well back in her shine days. Why won't she just go away and who are the promoters that keep booking her as well as who are the idiots that keep going to her shows knowing that she's a fraud and she absolutely stinks? Common sense ain't common.

  • Ramiro

    man fuck lauryn hill. I never liked her she always seemed like a bitch who thinks is better than everyone else.

  • bstyles

    She is horrible live,shows up anywhere from an hour to two hours late and demands the respect she tried to gain by marrying a Marley. She's a waste of time and money.She is not a legend,her first hit song was a cover song?!!! Quit acting like she's some kind of songwriter/saint.

    • Charles ExSavior

      I agree with you bstyles, except I dare say the first hit song was "Mona Lisa". Maybe her biggest success was off of "Killin 'Em Softly".

    • Ddot

      I totally agree. Saw her live and it was absolute trash...it's a shame, cuz she is such a talented emcee and singer...but for some reason, when she gets on stage she thinks she's Joan fucking Baez...get a grip lauryn...you're not fooling anyone.

  • Rodrick

    Cant ya'll find a better picture then that one to use anytime her name is brought up?? I mean Lauren is a Legend and whenever her name is a news story you use that horrible Homie The Clown picture in the headline Its Disrespectful If your gonna clown on people then make it equal, why not every time Waynes name is brought up just post that Pic of him & Birdman kissing??

      If some of you want to consider Lauryn a legend so be it!! Just because she won a grammy doesn't maker her a legend. Yall fucked up in the mind just like she is, no wonder some of you support her. Birds of a feather flock together!!!

    • Mike T
