Kanye West is awaiting the results of today's Presidential election, but he is also having to deal with a new class-action lawsuit filed against him by workers for his 'Kanye West Nebuchadnezzar Opera.'

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, Kanye West and Live Nation are being sued by a group of workers who helped with his live musical production called at the Hollywood Bowl.

In the lawsuit, a hair assistant who worked on the production claims she is owed "unpaid wages, continuing wages, damages, civil penalties, statutory penalties and attorney's fees and costs," after her day rate along with other fees were paid late and they were charged for getting their checks.

She claims they "failed to properly compensate the hair assistant and many dozens of other persons who performed services on the production, including the background actors, performing as audience members."

In the documents, the Yeezy founder was accused along with other defendants of "failing to provide pay stubs, failing to pay minimum wage and overtime," for the event.

The group suing is seeking at least $1 million for what they believe to be issues with how they were treated, and because the "defendants oversaw, controlled and ran the production, and the aggrieved employees worked many hours on the production and were no timely paid for their work, or paid at all".
