A former housekeeper is suing mega producer Dr. Dre for the abuse she said she suffered while in his employ.
In court documents obtained by the NY Daily News, Raquel Sagustume said she suffered a panic attack and was hospitalized after she was mentally abused by other household staff.
She says she was fired while recovering in the hospital.
Sagustume, who worked for Dre for 13 months, said the rapper and his wife, Nicole Young, failed to keep her safe while she worked in their home.
Sagustume said the other housekeepers -- Dre's 2 female cousins -- were jealous of her skill set; threatened her and delegated their own duties to her.
Sagustume is suing Dre for the loss of her wages -- $97,000 -- and unpaid sick leave, vacation pay, overtime and meals.
$97K just for cleaning a house? Why am I blogging?
From the NY Daily News:
The housekeeper said she suffered "burning pain" in her neck, arms and back and eventually developed so much anxiety in the toxic work environment that she had trouble breathing during one bout of bullying and landed in a hospital.
In her filing, Sagustume says she was fired while still in the hospital for the panic attack.
She says Dr. Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, failed to prevent discrimination and harassment in their home.
