Flo Rida sued for paying assistant '$3.00 per hour'

ARGUEMENT: Flo Rida sued for paying assistant '$3.00 per hour'

RAPPER FLO RIDA is facing a lawsuit from his ex-assistant who claims she was fired after complaining about working long hours for low pay.

In a new lawsuit, Mahogany Miller alleges she began working for the hip-hop star in August 2011 and was given a salary of $3.08 an hour for 65 hours a week, say reports.

Miller also was believed to have been sacked less than a day after she spoke out about her working conditions, and is now making a bid for unspecified damages.

Hitting back at the reports the star's lawyer, Sandy Becher, told Miller was never officially hired as an employee and was working as an unpaid volunteer.

Becher also stated that the alleged victim was fired because her behaviour was 'inappropriate for the workplace environment'.

Flo Rida said: "This is ridiculous that I gave someone an opportunity out of the goodness of my heart and now sadly I am being falsely targeted."
