LAURYN HILL FACES ANOTHER LAWSUIT FROM A TROMBONE PLAYER
Accordingly to TMZ, Lauryn Hill, her touring manager and her touring company are being sued by a trombone player, Matthew Hartnett, who says he joined L-Boogie’s team last summer (2016) for some live recording sessions. Apparently it went well, Hartnett recalls, alleging she offered him a touring gig through the fall. Hartnett claims Hill & her team hired him to record some songs and hit the road with her, but then fired him before ever paying him
According to the suit, Hartnett’s entitled to at least half his touring contract … not to mention another $4k or so for his studio cash. All in all he’s suing for $11,521.60 , not including additional damages. Hartnett claims he billed them an industry standard rate for the sessions, and signed a 10-week tour contract but never got paid for either. He says he was fired before the tour started.
Multiple sources have reached out Lauryn hill and her team but still no word response.
