Kanye West is being sued after a former property manager and caretaker claimed Ye dismissed him for refusing to remove all of the windows and electricity from the rapper’s Malibu house.

According to a complaint filed on Wednesday by a former project manager and property caretaker for Kanye West, the artist fired him after he refused to remove all of the windows and electricity from Ye’s Malibu mansion.

Tony Saxon, a property caretaker for the artist formerly known as Kanye West, refused to move large generators into the home, prompting Ye to order him to “get the hell out,” telling him he would be “considered an enemy if he did not comply,” according to the complaint filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

“When Plaintiff refused to engage in unlawful conduct or activity that would further cause him physical injury, Mr. Ye responded: ‘If you don’t do what I say, you’re not going to work for me, I’m not gonna be your friend anymore, and you’ll just see me on TV,” according to the lawsuit, which adds that Saxon doesn’t watch TV.

According to the lawsuit, Ye eventually fired Saxon, who also worked for him as a security guard and caretaker at the property, for not complying with his “dangerous” instructions. Saxon worked for Ye for around two months and claimed that the rapper promised him $20,000 per week but only made two payments: one to meet Saxon’s weekly compensation and the other to cover the project’s budget.

“I always had his best interests in mind as a friend,” Saxon, 32, says in an interview, comparing the events that led to his firing to a buddy stopping another friend from driving intoxicated. “They are furious that you crossed your boundaries, but they could have been seriously hurt.”

Multiple labor code breaches are alleged in the case, including dangerous working conditions, underpaid wages, and unlawful retaliatory discharge. Saxon’s attorney, Ron Zambrano, who also represents the former dancers who are suing Lizzo, stated that the rapper “has shown a reckless disregard toward his employees and has flouted the law in unbelievably dangerous ways throughout this entire project at the Malibu house.”


Tony Saxon claims he is owed $1m (£800,000) in unpaid wages and loss of earnings after working as a project manager, full-time security, and live-in caretaker at the house in Malibu Kanye West was renovating.

“He continues his pattern of not paying his bills while abusing his employees.” “No employee should have to endure the kind of working conditions that Mr. Saxon was forced to endure, yet Ye showed no concern and merely wanted the work done, despite the hazardous and unsafe, not to mention illegal, actions he was attempting to force the plaintiff to undertake,” writes Zambrano.

Saxon describes himself as a “jack of all trades” with a background in music, design, and construction, and claims he was employed by Kanye West through a referral. He stated that Ye’s aim for the beach mansion, which he apparently purchased off-market in September 2021, was to turn it into a “bomb shelter from the 1910s” by dismantling the handmade marble baths, removing the custom windows, plumbing, and electricity, and replacing the stairs with slides.

“We were going to be gutting all of that out and sort of building him a Bat Cave,” where he said he could “hide from the Clintons and the Kardashians,” according to Saxon, who adds that he initially thought Ye was looking to create a “art project,” not a liveable area. “As time goes on, it’s clear that, no, he wants to live here.”

But Ye stated that he did not want energy, only plants. He only wanted candles and battery lights, and he preferred that everything be “open and dark,” according to Saxon.

“You can’t keep food in that house because you don’t have a refrigerator,” Saxon explained. “You didn’t have any windows. Seagulls were flying in.”

Ye allegedly told Saxon that he did not want to be a “slave” to contemporary conveniences or “accessible” to the authorities.
“He wants to be on a privatized WiFi network,” Saxon explains. “He wishes to have a backup energy source. He wants no doors, windows, or fixtures, only concrete.”

The same attorneys who are suing Ye over charges relating to his private school, Donda Academy, and its predecessor, Yeezy Christian Academy, filed the case. A lawsuit filed in April by two former Donda Academy teachers claims a peculiar set of rules, including bans on seats, artwork on the walls, ascending the stairs, and outside food, despite the fact that the school menu only contained sushi.

Despite a bullying problem, teachers describe an institution with no disciplinary structure. Meanwhile, according to a separate lawsuit filed by the former assistant principal, the school had no electricity after it opened in August 2021. The trial is scheduled to commence in April 2025.
