Trevor Phillips, who is Black, also claims in the lawsuit that it was 'immediately apparent' that the rapper/Yeezy designer 'treated the Black staff considerably worse than white employees.'

AceShowbiz - Kanye West has been dragged to court by a former Yeezy and Donda Academy employee. The "N***as in Paris" hitmaker was accused of wanting to install a jail at his school to "cage" students, threatening to punch the plaintiff during a "temper tantrum," as well as giving preferential treatment to white employees.

Filing the lawsuit was a man named Trevor Phillips. In the legal docs submitted on Tuesday, April 2 in Los Angeles, Trevor detailed Ye's alleged treatments towards his employees, including spontaneous firings and a late-night summons to Nobu.

Since started working in November 2022, Trevor, who is Black, claimed it was "immediately apparent" that Ye "treated the Black staff considerably worse than white employees." The emcee allegedly would "scream and berate Black employees, while never even as much raising his tone at the white staff."

Trevor went on to note that Ye continued to "double down" his antisemitic remakrs following his fallout with Adidas and GAP. In addition, Ye reportedly threatened to go after the LGBTQ+ community "next" because "gay people are controlled by Bill Gates so that they don't have children for population control."

The plaintiff also said the ex-husband of Kim Kardashian once told two Donda Academy students that he wanted them to "shave their heads and that he intended to put a jail at the school - and that they could be locked in cages." He said he tried to push back the musician's "bigotry," but the artist "responded mercilessly, with incessant harassment, humiliation, and attempts to both mentally control, and destroy, Phillips."

"Kanye's ill-will towards the plaintiff ultimately culminated in a vulgar lashing in front of schoolchildren and their parents," the complaint read. "Kanye even threatened Phillips with physical violence."

Trevor said he was actually hired work for the fashion line Yeezy. However, he was also assigned to handle works at the private school because the continued criticism over Ye's antisemitic comments and the "White Lives Matter" shirt controversy.

Unfortunately, according to the suit, Trevor was expected to be on call 24/7 for his all-encompassing role. He also made far less than the promised pay of $100 per hour, which were delayed after the Yeezy bank accounts were frozen.

Trevor claimed his relationship with Ye had soured by May 2023 after several misunderstandings, culminating in Ye throwing a "temper tantrum" and threatening to punch him. He pleaded with the rapper to not fire him because his daughter and little brother both attended Donda and that he was in the midst of an undiagnosed medical condition, but Ye couldn't care less and allegedly began another tirade.

Travis' work with Ye ended in August 2023. He is now seeking at least $35,000 for what he labels as whistleblower retaliation, discrimination based on race and a hostile workplace, among eight other causes of action.
