A security guard at Universal Music Publishing Group's Santa Monica office calls out the drug use of several artists in her lawsuit.
A woman who works as a security guard at Universal Music Publishing Group's Santa Monica headquarters has become so fed up with the marijuana-smoking ways of various artists that she’s decided to sue the Universal Music Group-owned UMPG, Universal Protection Services, the management of the building she works in, and more.
In the complaint, the woman states that "artists and high-profile celebrities began visiting the premises with drugs in hand and oftentimes offering drugs to Plaintiff, which she refused."
On top of various instances of drug use from visiting artists, the security guard also claimed that she had issues with T.I.’s security team when she asked that they move their vehicles. When she informed one of the rapper’s bodyguards of her request he responded, "I gotta be able to get this boy outta here if a shootout or something goes down."
The woman is seeking an unspecified amount in her lawsuit. When asked about the lawsuit they’ve been hit with, a spokesperson for Universal Music referred to it as being “absurd.”
"While we cannot comment on the allegations between the plaintiff and her employer, we can say that the allegations as they relate to Universal Music Group are absurd," said a company spokesperson.
