Kanye West Sued for Sexual Harassment by Ex-Assistant (Reports) Fsalinks


Kanye West is under fire again after his former assistant Lauren Pisciotta filed a lawsuit accusing him of sexual harassment, breach of contract and wrongful termination, according to reports from TMZ, Rolling Stone, the BBC and other outlets. She is also suing the rapper and his various companies, including Yeezy, for fraud, unpaid wages and intentional infliction of emotional distress, according to Rolling Stone, which viewed the court documents.

Pisciotta reportedly collaborated with West on his Yeezy women’s clothing line as well as on his 2021 album Donda. She said she was hired as his assistant in 2021, with a million-dollar annual salary, under the condition that she would be available to him “24/7,” Rolling Stone reports.

Pisciotta, who was already making the same annual income off OnlyFans and on social media, according to the lawsuit, said West was initially fine with her endeavor on the side. However, he then told her that he wanted her to be “God like” and asked her to delete her account, in exchange for an extra $1 million, the suit states. She complied. However, she claims West then began allegedly sexually harassing her.

According to the suit, one of the texts from West to Pisciotta read, “See my problem is I be wanting to fuck but then after I fuck I want a girl to tell me how hard they been fucked while I’m fucking them. Then I want her to cheat on me.”

In another text, per the suit, he asked Pisciotta, “Is my dick racist? I’m going to stare at pictures of white women with black asses and beat the shit out of my racist dick.”

Pisciotta claims West was “fixated on the penis size” of her partners and that he would masturbate during phone conversations with her, according to Rolling Stone.

And she alleges that during a flight to Paris, West informed her that he needed to talk to her and essentially trapped them in his room on the plane after he closed the door, which was unable to be opened from inside. While Pisciotta sat on a chair across from West, who was lying down on his bed, he began to masturbate under the covers, ultimately falling asleep, Rolling Stone reports.

In the lawsuit, it’s mentioned that Pisciotta was promoted to chief of staff for West’s various companies in September 2022 and was told she was getting a $3 million bonus. She was fired the following month, with the offer of a $3 million severance package. While she accepted it, Pisciotta claimed she never received it.

Pisciotta’s lawsuit comes nearly a month after Milo Yiannopoulus, who was Yeezy’s chief of staff, quit the company following West’s plans to create a pornography division.

West’s rep has not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter‘s request for comment.
