Kanye West Sued By Former Employee, Alleging Sexual Harassment

Music mogul Kanye West is facing legal troubles as his former assistant, Lauren Pisciotta, filed a lawsuit against him, alleging sexual harassment and wrongful termination.

Pisciotta, who worked for West for two years, claims he sent her sexually explicit texts and behaved inappropriately throughout her employment. West has not yet publicly addressed these allegations.

According to the filing obtained by The Blast, Pisciotta has 15 years of experience in the music industry. West hired her as a creative collaborator for his Yeezy Season 1 women’s fashion line in 2015, and she also contributed to his 2021 album, Donda. In July 2021, she was promoted to Executive Assistant/Personal Assistant with a promised annual salary of $1 million, requiring her to be available “24/7.”

Before working full-time for West, Pisciotta earned $1 million creating content on OnlyFans and social media. Initially, West was supportive, calling her an “OnlyFans superstar.” However, in August 2022, he demanded she delete her OnlyFans account and become “God-like,” promising to pay her $1 million, a promise she claims he never fulfilled. Instead, Pisciotta alleges that West began sexually harassing her, sending explicit messages and pornographic videos, and masturbating during phone calls.

The lawsuit also alleges that during a flight to Paris, West called Pisciotta into a private room and masturbated under the covers. In September 2022, she was promoted to chief of staff for West’s companies with a promised $3 million bonus, but the following month, she was offered a $3 million severance package, which she never received. She claims West developed an “obsession” with her, moving into her building and “stalking” her after her termination.

Pisciotta is suing for at least $4 million, citing breach of contract, a hostile work environment, and sexual harassment.
