Three men hired to guard Britney Spears have filed a lawsuit claiming they worked long hours and were not paid overtime
Her role as a newly mother keeps her busy that she has yet started working on a new album, but Britney Spears keeps creating sensation after another. Following the pros and cons concerning "Monument to Pro-Life: The Birth of Sean Preston", the pop singer is now faced with a legal suit filed by her three former bodyguards.
Lonnie Jones, Randy Jones and Silas Dukes have all filed lawsuit Tuesday in Superior Court, named in it three companies, Britney Brands Inc., Britney Touring Inc. and Team Tours Inc., as responsible for not properly paying them. Their lawyer, Daniel Emilio, said Randy Jones and Dukes worked 12- to 16-hour shifts and were required to be on call 24 hours a day during trips with Spears, while Lonnie Jones worked 12-hour shifts.
They further claimed to be only paid a "straight salary," missed meals and didn't receive overtime pay. Hence, the threesome is seeking damages exceeding $25,000 for unpaid wages and benefits.
