Kanye West Facing a Cash Crunch?

Last year Kanye West was sued by members of his 'Sunday Service' choir for non-payment [click here if you missed that]. 

Now more of Kanye's employees are claiming they are not being paid...

From Radar Online

According to court documents, Kanye and his company allegedly failed to comply with California Labor Code requirements by misclassifying Yeezy employees as independent contractors, thereby depriving them of wages and several other benefits.
Taliah Leslie claims in the filing that Yeezy has a consistent practice of violating Labor Code sections.
Leslie says Yeezy did not pay her for off-the-clock work she performed while on the job site, as well as work-related travel to and from locations like Cody, Wyoming, and Paris, France.
Leslie also claims West failed to compensate all of her overtime work hours and says the company did not uphold a policy that provides employees with off-duty meal breaks, as required by California law.
