Kim Kardashian and Kanye West plunged into fresh chaos after staff take legal action against them

THEIR marriage ended in a mess, with Kanye West slating Kim Kardashian’s family online . . . and things aren’t getting much better for either of them now that they have split.

I can reveal that the pair are rumoured to be facing fresh chaos with some employees threatening legal action over working conditions.

The disgruntled staff are said to be demanding a piece of the pay-out pie for having to endure years of what they look set to claim was unreasonable behaviour.

It comes four months after Kanye was hit by similar claims from people in his Sunday Service choir — who claimed he had “mistreated workers”.

Let’s be honest, the brown robes he made them wear were criminal enough.

An insider alleged: “Since members of his Sunday Service crew sued, other employees have been considering their options.

“There’s apparently a potential lawsuit in the works against Kim involving multiple employees.

"They are believed to be domestic workers employed at her home who allegedly may have been misclassified as independent contractors instead of employees.

"If a lawsuit is filed, then one issue would be how much control Kim and her staff had over them.”

To add to Kim and Kanye’s troubles, some of the employees are said to be teenagers. The source added: “If minors were employed and worked more than the maximum limit set by law, then there may be a case of child labour violations.”

It certainly would not be a good look for the couple, whose lavish Italian wedding in 2014 had a starrier guest list than the Oscars.

Kim and Kanye, who have four kids together, announced their split in February.

Little has been said by either party over their divorce but given they are worth billions, it’s not going to be a straightforward parting.

If another lawsuit is added on top of Kanye’s ongoing legal woes around complaints over his Sunday Service — then I can only imagine that it’ll get a lot worse before it gets better.

Ariana says 'I do' at secret bash

CONGRATULATIONS are in order for Ariana Grande after she got married.

The superstar and real estate agent Dalton Gomez had a secret ceremony at home in California at the weekend.

The couple started dating in January last year and he popped the question in December.

Confirming the news last night, a rep for the singer said: “They got married. It was tiny and intimate, fewer than 20 people.

"The room was so happy and full of love. The couple and both families couldn’t be happier.”

She opened up about their romance for the first time on her album Positions last October, when she sang about their sex life and said she wanted his children.

ccording to sources in the US, they said their vows in an informal ceremony at the home the singer bought from chat show host Ellen DeGeneres for nearly £5million in June last year.

It is in the celebrity enclave Montecito, where Prince Harry and Meghan, as well as Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom live.

The superstar was previously engaged in 2018 to US comic Pete Davidson

James keeping his Embers cool

OUR Eurovision entry James Newman has taken ice-olation to the extreme.

The singer-songwriter has been demanding bucketloads of ice cubes be brought up to his hotel room in Rotterdam, in the Netherlads, at the crack of dawn every day so he can have ice baths.

He claims they get him in the right frame of mind to perform as he prepares for the competition’s final in the city on Saturday – but I can’t imagine the hotel staff are too chuffed about it.

Explaining his unlikely diva demand, James, who holds the hopes of the nation with his upbeat song Embers, said: “I love cold water and having ice baths.

“So I asked reception, ‘Is there any chance you could deliver some ice to my room?’

“I was like, ‘Yeah, just chuck it in the bath mate, nice one’. It was great.”

James has already rehearsed twice ahead of the weekend’s big bash and reckons he will smash it on stage.

But first he had to get over his fear of the set. He will be performing beneath some massive trumpet props, which were giving him the jitters.

James explained: “I think they’re polystyrene, which is good, because if they fall on my head they won’t kill me.”

Coldplay sign up

CHRIS MARTIN wants to reflect a sign of the times on Coldplay’s next album.

He said: “We’re trying to have the first album with some tracks that have titles of just emojis.

“But it’s proving tricky because of all the service providers, some say, ‘You can’t do that’.”

Chris, who opened the Brits alongside bandmates Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, And Will Champion Last week with Higher Power, told Chris Moyles on his Radio X show: “You literally have ten million songs in one box.

"Let us have a picture of an apple for a song or something like that."

Court ruling

PAMELA Anderson’s pal Courtney Love has slammed Lily James For signing up to play the former Baywatch actress in the upcoming series Pam & Tommy.

It will portray Pammie’s marriage to her first husband, Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee and the leak of their sex tape, which Courtney says “destroyed my friend Pamela’s life . . . utterly”.

In a rant on Facebook, singer Courtney wrote: “I find this so fing outrageous. My heart goes out to Pammy . . . further causing her complex trauma.”

Lily has recently been pictured wearing prosthetic boobs and blonde hair to play Pammie in the series, being shot in Los Angeles.

Courtney ended her post: “And shame on Lily James, whoever the f she is.”

Ouch.

Maya gives it her best shot

THEY’VE kept their romance under wraps for months but now Maya Jama and Ben Simmons’ relationship is hotting up.

Those close to the basketball player, who is based in the US, have revealed he is planning on coming over to the UK for an extended break with Maya.

An insider said: “Ben is really keen on Maya and as the regular basketball season winds down he is going to have more time to see her.

“He wants to come over to see her and find out more about her life here after she headed to the States to be with him.

"It’s all exciting and new for both of them. Having Ben over is exactly what Maya wants.”

Their fledgling relationship was revealed last month but the pair didn’t hint at it publicly until this weekend.

Telly star Maya posted a snap of herself wearing a pair of Ben’s basketball shorts on Instagram, which he replied to with a heart emoji.

The Philadelphia 76ers player – who has dated Kendall Jenner –  also clapped back at a fan who wrote on the snap: “Posting in his house before he’s claimed you because he’s not liking. Yikes.”

Replying to the comment, Ben wrote: “Don’t be talking to my girl like that now.”

Ben is the first man Maya has been officially linked to since her split from Stormzy in August 2019.

The pair spent time together over Christmas but pals insisted they are just good friends.

I’m sure Stormzy will wish Maya the very best. But if I was him, I’d be kicking myself

How to be cool and Cam

Camila Cabello has confessed she has hang-ups about her romance with Shawn Mendes.

The Havana singer admitted to being scared about falling too hard for her hunky other half, who she started dating in 2019.

In a special series for mental wellness app Calm, Camila said: “Creativity is an act of surrender.

You’re falling into the unknown where the emotions are powerful. It’s going to be terrifying and exhilarating all at the same time.

“Think about love. Being in love is the opposite of being in control. It’s terrifying. Art and love and life, these are fragile things.”

Shawn also spoke about his mental health journey for Mental Health Awareness month.

He said: “I’m getting better with this whole letting go thing. I can start to feel when my ego’s creeping in.

"It’s saying, ‘This needs to be a hit, this melody isn’t good enough’.

“When I hear that voice I go, ‘OK, we’re going for a walk and we’re not coming back until I want to write songs because I really just like writing songs’.”

He added: “Your personal philosophy is about who you are and why you’re here on the deepest level there is.

"If you haven’t found it yet, that’s cool. I’m not sure I’ve even found mine yet. I’m still searching.”

When did pop stars get so deep?
