A chef who used to work for Lil Wayne claims she was wrongfully terminated in a lawsuit she’s filed against the rapper.

TMZ reports Morghan Medlock alleged Wayne fired her earlier this year because she had to leave his Memorial Day trip to Vegas after receiving a call about her injured son. In court docs obtained by the outlet, she claimed Wayne and his team were smoking on the private jet, which was delaying their departure. As she was in a rush to get to her son, she booked a separate flight and notified Wayne’s assistant. She said she made it clear she wasn’t quitting when she left to take care of her son.

According to Medlock, she reached out to Wayne’s team about getting back to work, but was ignored. She later received a text informing her of her termination, along with a message from Wayne saying, “tell Chef Morghan this isn’t going to work,” she wrote in the suit.

Medlock is suing Wayne for wrongful termination, retaliation and unlawful practices, claiming California law protects against the firing of an employee who missed work to care for their sick or injured child. She’s seeking at least $500,000 in the case.
