Not according to Jay Gore, a professional guitar player who worked with Lauryn on her European tour in 2007. Gore has reportedly filed a lawsuit against Lauryn Hill for outstanding payments and mistreatment.

According to TMZ, the documents revealed that Lauryn “exhibited the type of behavior for which she had gained public notoriety which contributed to a hostile work environment.”

The suit further stated,

“After shows, Hill would demand that the musicians and road support personnel attend meetings where she would engage in a person-by-person critique and berating.”
