Kanye West has been sued by his former assistant. The woman accused him of sexual assault and other illegal acts. This is not the first serious allegation the rapper has faced. He has long been involved in controversial behaviors.

Kanye West is one of the most famous American rappers. He has won as many as 24 Grammy Awards. Moreover, his albums have earned at least platinum status in the USA. West is also a music producer and owns the record label GOOD Music.

Additionally, he designed clothing and ran for president of the United States in 2020. His fame comes not only from his musical achievements but also from his controversial views. The artist is known for his anti-Semitic remarks and has made many hateful speeches, which have led some companies to sever ties with him.

Controversial behaviors of Kanye West

Kanye West has long been unable to maintain a good reputation. Despite his impressive artistic successes, he frequently exhibits controversial behavior. Some time ago, foreign media buzzed about a speech by the rapper in which he expressed approval for Adolf Hitler. On another occasion, he spoke negatively about Jews, even threatening them.

Lauren Pisciotta is Kanye West's former assistant. She was a star on an adult platform when she began working with the rapper. Additionally, she helped him create several songs from the album "Donda" and managed his clothing company. When the artist sent disturbing messages, he appointed her head of several important departments.

More troubling details have surfaced about the artist. West's former assistant sued him for unjustifiable termination. The situation was further exacerbated by the employer not paying her the 3 million dollars specified in their contract. The woman accused him of harassment, illegal termination, breach of contract terms, and creating an inappropriate work environment.
