Lauryn Hill and her team hired a trombone player to record some songs and venture out on tour with her, but then fired him before ever paying him.
Lauryn, her touring manager and her touring company are being sued by Matthew Hartnett, who says he joined L-Boogie's team last summer for some live recording sessions. Apparently it went well, he says she offered him a touring gig through the fall.
Hartnett claims he billed them an industry standard rate for the sessions, and signed a 10-week tour contract, but never got paid for either. He says he was fired before the tour started.
According to the suit, Hartnett's entitled to at least half his touring contract and another $4k or so for his studio session fee. Hartnett is suing for $11,521.60, plus damages.
