Dr Dre sued by former cleaner following ‘unfair dismissal’ from £1,200-a-week job

Raquel Sagustume claims to have been harassed by fellow employees

Dr Dre is reportedly being sued by his former house cleaner for unfair dismissal.

As reported by New York Daily News, the hip-hop mogul’s former housekeeper, Raquel Sagustume, has filed a civil suit at a court in Los Angeles seeking compensation after being fired from her $1,870 (£1,200) per week cleaning job.

Sagustume claims that she was fired by Dre a year into the job after she was hospitalised for health problems, which she says arose from being harassed in the workplace.

The cleaner alleges that she was bullied by two other staff members, causing her emotional and physical strain.

Sagustume alleges that Dr Dre and his wife, Nicole Young, are responsible for the harassment as they failed to prevent it as employers.

Dr Dre, who recently released his long-awaited new album ‘Compton’, has not publicly commented on the matter.


Meanwhile, Dr Dre recently said that he wants to tour Europe with Eminem, Snoop Dogg and Kendrick Lamar.

Speaking on his ‘Pharmacy’ Beats 1 radio show recently, Dre said: “I’m 30 years in the game right now and I’ve never been able to take my full production over to Europe. Me and Snoop – we’ve been over there. Me and Eminem have been over there, but it’s just been like spot dates and like taking a microphone over there with a DJ.”

“I never had the opportunity to take the full production over there and take my full body of ideas over there and present it to all the people over there in Europe that’s been representing and showing me love throughout my entire 30-year career.”

Dre continued: “This is one of the things that I dreamed about doing. I want to call it ‘Beats & Rhymes’. I want it to be me and Snoop. I want it to be Eminem. I want it to be Kendrick Lamar. Do a tour over in Europe and call it Beats & Rhymes and take our full production over there and take our full stage over there and really go over there and show Europe the same amount of love that they been showing me throughout my entire career. So, that’s my dream. Hopefully we can make that happen.”

“Your dream sounds like Woodstock on steroids,” Snoop replied. “Let’s call it ‘Hoodstock’.”
