LOS ANGELES – A former director for one of Ye’s company’s has dropped her lawsuit against the rapper formerly known as Kanye West in which she alleged she was owed back wages.
An attorney for plaintiff Dora Szilagyi filed court papers on Tuesday with Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Timothy Patrick Dillon asking that her case be dismissed “with prejudice,” meaning it cannot be refiled. The court papers do not state whether a settlement was reached or if the plaintiff is not pursuing the case for other reasons.
Szilagyi was hired by Ye’s company, Yeezy LLC, in June 2021 as director of product innovation, allegedly being promised she would be paid $275,000 in severance if she were fired without cause after Sept. 1, 2021.
However, the plaintiff maintained that Ye and Yeezy balked at the agreement even though she was not fired until mid-December 2021. She alleged La Palma-based Yeezy owed her at least $275,000 in wages and/or contract damages, including attorneys’ fees and costs.
The suit was filed March 30, alleging breach of contract, failure to pay wages, fraud, negligent misrepresentation and violations of the state Labor Code.
