Lauryn Hill Sued by Former Stylist

The Rolling Stone Blog

Lauryn Hill is being sued by a former stylist
who claims that the singer breached their contract on her 2007 European
tour by refusing to return items of clothing. According to a lawsuit
filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, Hill had agreed to pay a
fixed weekly fee to Via Davia Vintage for an entire wardrobe of "high
fashion items" for four weeks, but the singer only returned about a
fourth of the collection after three months and held on to the most
expensive items.

This is the second lawsuit that has been filed this year against Hill
regarding her behavior on her 2007 European tour. Jay Gore, a guitarist
on the tour, filed a suit in August alleging that she had refused to pay him thousands of dollars in wages and had regularly berated the band and crew on the road.
