(AllHipHop News) Hip-Hop star Lauryn Hill has been slapped with legal action from a former trombone player over allegations of unpaid wages.
Musician Matthew Hartnett claims he was hired for a series of live recording sessions over the summer and was then invited to join Hill on tour, but he was reportedly cut from the autumn shows before they began, despite signing a 10-week contract.
According to TMZ.com , he has yet to receive payment for his music contributions, and insists he is entitled to at least half of the value of his touring agreement.
Hartnett is now demanding compensation for just over $ 11,500, in addition to damages.
The “Ex-Factor” hitmaker has been named as a defendant in the lawsuit, alongside her touring manager and her touring company bosses. They have yet to respond to the accusations.
It’s not clear which series of concerts Hartnett was recruited for, but Hill embarked on the “Powernomics Tour” with rapper Nas in September.
