Lawsuit Alleges Universal Music Security Guard Fired for Blowing Whistle on Rockers' Drug Use
A former security guard at Universal Music in Los Angeles says she was fired for blowing the whistle on rampant drug use by the label's artists.
The woman, who is suing her former employer, claims she was offered drugs by a variety of big-named stars as well as witnessed them using them.
In a lawsuit filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday, she claims that ‘artists and high profile celebrities began visiting the premises with drugs in hand and oftentimes offering drugs to Plaintiff, which she refused.’
She claims to have personally witnessed drug use or drug paraphernalia from Macy Gray, guests of Jamie Foxx, MC Ren, rapper T.I. and his wife Tiny's entourage and heard about drug use involving Maroon 5 frontman and ‘The Voice’ star Adam Levine....
A spokesperson for Universal Music has described the allegations as ‘absurd.’
Levine is a musical coach on the hit reality singing show The Voice while Gray's musical career has cooled off considerably in recent years. Foxx is currently shooting the sequel to The Amazing Spider-Man.
