The Yeezy designer's lawyers claim that his former personal assistant Lauren Pisciotta attempted to the rapper 'sexually to coerce employment and other material benefits' and once 'her advances were rejected,' she allegedly blackmailed him.

AceShowbiz - Kanye West has vehemently denied sexual harassment allegations made by his former assistant. Through his legal team, the "N***as in Paris" hitmaker declare that he will contersue Lauren Pisciotta.

In a statement to Page Six on Tuesday, June 4, Ye's lawyers claimed that Pisciotta attempted to the rapper "sexually to coerce employment and other material benefits." Once "her advances were rejected," she allegedly blackmailed him.

"In response to these baseless allegations, Ye will be filing a lawsuit against Ms. Pisciotta," read the statement. "Prior to her termination as an assistant, Ms. Pisciotta stole his cell phone in an attempt to destroy phone records that would contradict her claims, all of which have been preserved."

It was unveiled that Pisciotta was "terminated for being unqualified" and for "demanding unreasonable sums of money" which was allegedly a salary of $4 million, in addition to "lascivious, unhinged conduct." His lawyers further alleged, "Pisciotta offered Ye sex on his birthday to which he declined, sent Ye unsolicited nude images, sexual narratives and was seen twerking in the office during business hours."

Additionally, West claimed Pisciotta tried to sexually coerce him to pay for some Hermes Birkin bags, a Lamborghini and plastic surgery. His legal team said that Pisciotta's behavior is "entirely inconsistent with someone who claims to have been sexually harassed or experienced a hostile work environment" and that she is seeking out "material gains, clout and employment through inappropriate means."

Pisciotta filed sexual harassment and wrongful termination lawsuit against Ye on Monday. In her complaint, Lauren said she was an OnlyFans model who posted bikini and lingerie pictures and was super successful, making $1 million a year. She met the hip-hop artist when he while he was cultivating his Yeezy fashion line, and was subsequently hired by the emcee in July 2021.

The woman also claimed that she collaborated with Ye and worked with him on 3 songs on "Donda", according to TMZ One year after working together, Ye allegedly asked the her to delete her OnlyFans account and promised to pay her $1 million a year if she did so.

Shortly after she agreed, Lauren said Ye began to send her a series of lewd text messages. He also reportedly sent sexual videos and photos to her, including at least 2 videos of him having sex with a model. She claimed he then promoted her to Chief of Staff for his various companies, at a salary of $4 million.

However, in October 2022, Lauren was fired. Kanye reportedly offered her a $3 million severance, which she accepted. Unfortunately, the rapper never paid. Thus, she's suing for breach of contract, sexual harassment, wrongful termination and hostile work environment.
