Dr. Dre And His Wife Sued For Allegedly Not Paying Their Housekeeping Staff

Dr. Dre and his wife are being accused of running such a tight ship in their home, they didn't allow their staff to take proper meal and rest breaks ... and now two former staffers are suing.

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Ines Cornejo and Diana Brenes have joined together in a lawsuit against Dre and his wife, Nicole Young.

Cornejo says she worked for the Youngs from September 2015 through September 2018. She says her position was as a laundress — and apparently the family had a lot of laundry to do because Cornejo says she was provided only a few minutes to eat during her shift.

She also says her meal breaks were often later in her shift and were frequently interrupted or cut short entirely. Cornejo also claims she was not given rest breaks or paid for the rest breaks she was not given, as the law dictates.

Brenes, who worked as a housekeeper and cook from September 2010 to October 2017, makes similar claims.

She also claims she was not given proper meal and rest breaks and says her meal breaks were often cut short by Dre and his wife with requests to "immediately resume cooking or cleaning."

The two are suing for failure to provide meal and rest periods, as well as several other labor violations.

They are seeking unspecified damages.

Dr. Dre and Nicole Threatt got married in 1996 and the marriage has lasted more than 20 years. They have two children: Truice Young, born in 1997 and Truly Young, born in 2001.

Nicole was previously married to NBA player Sedale Threatt, and Dre, who was also previously married, has four other children with four different women.

Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine tried their hardest to remain defiant against a former business partner who claims he got screwed out of royalties for Beats headphones, but unfortunately a jury didn't agree with them and awarded the man millions.

According to the jury verdict sheet obtained by The Blast, Steven Lamar was awarded $25,247,350 in total damages for the versions of the Beats headphones which he was owed royalties.

The jury broke down the damages by awarding him over $7 million for the Studio 2/Remastered headphones, $14 million for the Studio 2 Wireless version and another $2 million for the Studio 3 cans.

Just last week, Dre and Iovine testified in the case that their involvement with the technology inside the headphones was minimal, and they mostly just focused on the aesthetics and marketing.

Lamar had a previous agreement with the music moguls over Beats, but after Apple acquired the company in 2014 for $3 billion, he felt he was owed royalties in regards to the products he developed. He originally filed suit in 2016.
