Dr. Dre and Wife Sued for Alleged Labor Law Violations & 'Willfully' Not Paying Staff

Dr. Dre and his wife are being sued by two of their former household helpers after they allegedly suffered years of torment and abuse.


Ines Cornejo and Diana Brenes are joining forces against Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, who allegedly mistreated them after working with them for many years.


Unfair Working Conditions

Cornejo worked for the Youngs for three years from September 2015 to 2018, and in those years as a laundress, she was only permitted to eat for a couple of minutes during her shifts. These breaks were also much later in her shift and were interrupted or cut short. She also shares that she was not given rest breaks, nor was she paid for the rest breaks where she was forced to work.


Meanwhile, Brenes worked as a housekeeper and cook for the Young family from September 2010 to October 2017, and she is now coming forward to share similar claims against the family.

In her seven years of working with the family, she was not given proper breaks, and they were often cut short by the couple making requests to resume cooking or cleaning.


Now, the two of them are suing for not being given proper working benefits among many other labor violations. The amount for which they are suing has remained undisclosed.

An early bribe?

Recently, Dr. Dre faced another controversy, this time in the form of putting in "bribes" for his daughter to be accepted into college. Truly Young got into the University of Southern California, which they both claimed was "on her own merit." However, it was revealed that he actually made a $70 million dollar donation to the school a couple of years back which might have ultimately helped her get in.


After being called out for this, he deleted the post where he stated his daughter 100% got in on her own. He even poked fun at the other parents who "bribed" their children into school, saying "No jail time!!!" Unfortunately for him, people on the internet have keen eyes and noticed the whopping donation he made to the school a couple of years prior.

While this issue had already died down, the family now faces another, this time with legal implications that could give them jail time.
