Kanye West Was Sued By ‘Nebuchadnezzar’ Opera Staffers For $1 Million In Unpaid Wages

Nearly a year ago, Kanye West took over the Hollywood Bowl to hold his Nebuchadnezzar opera show. It was held shortly after he delivered his Jesus Is King project, a release that kicked off his dive into the world of gospel music. The opera show was disappointing to fans who attended, as it started two hours behind schedule and lasted only 50 minutes. Now, less than three weeks from the one-year anniversary of the show, West is facing a lawsuit from the opera staffers for unpaid wages.

According to legal documents obtained by Complex, the opera staffers claimed that they were not adequately compensated for their contribution to their Nebuchadnezzar show. The plaintiffs in the lawsuit include background actors and a hairstylist who claims she was supposed to receive $550 for two days of work. The hairstylist said after four months they received a $530 check and allegedly she was charged a $20 wire fee to get the payment. Other workers on the opera set said they were also charged the $20 fee, which apparently is a violation of California’s labor code.

“The defendants oversaw, controlled and ran the production, and the aggrieved employees worked many hours on the production and were not timely paid for their work, or paid at all,” a document from the lawsuit reads. “In addition, Defendants misclassified Plaintiffs and Aggrieved Employees as independent contractors as no deductions were made for payroll taxes.”

The plaintiffs are hoping to receive “unpaid wages, continuing wages, damages, civil penalties, statutory penalties and attorney’s fees and costs.”

In a bold declaration, Megan Thee Stallion has officially crowned Jujutsu Kaisen as her reigning favorite anime. With unbridled enthusiasm, she declared, “Jujutsu Kaisen is setting the anime world on fire right now. It’s the absolute best! Don’t get me wrong, I love my other anime favorites, but Jujutsu Kaisen has my heart at the moment. Period. Real hot girl sh-t,” Megan shared with Teen Vogue. And if that wasn’t enough, Megan turned heads at the Anime Awards in Tokyo, dazzling in an outfit inspired by Jujutsu’s charismatic character, Gojo.

But Megan’s anime passion doesn’t stop there. At the awards ceremony, she strutted her stuff in an outfit paying homage to Bruno Bucciarati from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Golden Wind. Megan’s attention to detail showcased her genuine love for the medium. The rapper spilled the beans on her anime fandom, even revealing her anime “backup dancers” from Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure. Bucciarati, in particular, earned a special mention because, as Megan put it, “he’s my boy, he’s got them moves already!” YuYu Hakusho claimed the title of Megan’s “comfort anime,” the one she finds herself dozing off to. And when it comes to genre preferences, Megan asserted, “I want that city tore up when the action goes down!”
