Los Angeles, Aug 27: Rapper Drake is being sued by his former stylist Michael Raphael for $76,000, reports tmz.com.
Raphael has claimed that the rapper failed to reimburse him for nearly $40,000 in expenses, which were not covered in his salary. These included shopping trips and plane rides - all incurred by him while working for the star.
According to the lawsuit, Drake, 26, hired the stylist in August 2012 to consult on his OVO clothing line at a salary of $39,583 per month. However, Raphael says he also spent thousands of dollars of his own money on buying designer clothing such as Nike and Diesel for the rapper, as well as paying for flights and hotels to meet him in locations around the world, reports tmz.com.
The style guru claims that the "Take Care" rapper promptly paid his salary and covered additional expenses between August and November 2012 without any issues, but abruptly stopped payments in December 2012.
He is now suing his former employer for $76,490 to cover both his salary for that month and extra charges that he incurred while working for Drake.
The stylist has also provided numerous receipts to back up his claims, which show that he spent $1,162 at Nike, $1,483 at Diesel and $714 at American Rag.
Drake is yet to comment on the lawsuit.
