Lauryn Hill SuedThe court documents which were filed at the L.A. County Superior Court allege that Hill failed to return the clothes that she was given for her tour in Europe in 2007. Under an agreement that the documents claim she made with the fashion house, Hill was to pay the total cost of the clothes over a period of four weeks. However the paper claims that only 30 percent of the total has been paid.
The fateful European tour in 2007 is turning out to one of the most controversial for the 36-year-old singer. In August, guitarist Jay Gore also filed papers in the court alleging that Hill failed to pay him for the tour. Gore who played during the tour revealed in the court documents that Hill was supposed to pay him $20,000.
Gore wrote in his court papers that, “[She] exhibited the type of behavior for which she had gained public notoriety which contributed to a hostile work environment. At one point, Hill made a statement in front of the tour personnel to the effect that ‘I can’t believe I am paying you fools, you should be paying me.’”
