Kanye West is being sued in federal court for failing to pay nearly 1,000 members of his Sunday Service revivals.
Kanye faces two class action lawsuits totaling $30 million in penalties for failure to pay members and crew of his Sunday Service revivals, according to multiple reports.
Complicating the rap producer’s legal troubles is the fact that he obtained $2 million in federal Covid-19 relief funds in 2020 — specifically to pay his performers and crew.
According to Page Six, the two cases were filed in Los Angeles separately for 500 performers and over 300 crew members.
Lawyers representing the plaintiffs have asked them to reach out to others who provided services for Kanye, but did not get paid.
“They’ve got hundreds of people on board already,” a source told the UK Sun newspaper. “They’re talking to many, many others who want to be a part of it. People are very upset how they were treated, saying it’s their worst experience,” the source added.
