Mega-rich Hollywood music executive Irving Azoff, 74, is being sued by his former housekeeper for allegedly failing to pay the woman for her overtime work and firing her for health issues.

Gloria Martinez filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court on Tuesday alleging that her former boss and his wife, Shelli Azoff, stiffed her on her wages and abruptly fired her in March after the onset of a health issue caused her to miss work for doctor’s appointments.

Martinez worked for the Azoffs for a period of about 10 years, between 2008-2017 and again between August 2021-March 2022. 

Irving Azoff is an incredibly well-connected Hollywood music executive with a net worth of $400 million.

He formerly managed superstar Christina Aguilera, and has had clients who include legends like Bon Jovi, The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac and even risqué comedienne Chelsea Handler.

Azoff and his wife, Rochelle ‘Shelli’ Azoff, who is a close personal friend of Kris Jenner, are being sued  by their former housekeeper for allegedly firing her due to medical issues

Irving and his wife Shelli are also good friends of the Kardashian/Jenner clan and hosted the wedding for Khloe Kardashian’s short-lived marriage to Lamar Odom at their Beverly Hills mansion. 

According to the New York Post, Martinez claims to have developed ongoing ovarian pain caused by cysts and fibroids in mid-2021.

The suit states that Shelli Azoff began complaining about the time Martinez needed to take off to accommodate her illness after three visits to the doctor.

When Martinez told Shelli she would have to undergo a hysterectomy within the year, Mrs. Azoff allegedly told the woman that was neither a ‘necessary’ nor ‘correct’ treatment for her condition.

On February 24, 2022, Martinez missed work to undergo a biopsy and provided her bosses with a medical note. She was told to schedule a follow-up appointment for March 10 but was terminated on March 9. 

Furthermore, Martinez alleges that the multi-multi-millionaires were sketchy about paying her.

The Los Angeles housekeeper says she and her employers had agreed upon a $1,500 weekly salary, but the number she was given ‘varied in amount’ week to week.

‘Defendants’ termination of Martinez’s employment was done with malice and oppression,’ reads the suit. 

‘Defendants’ conduct was intended to retaliate against Martinez for having exercised her right to request reasonable accommodations due to her disability. This constitutes unlawful discrimination and retaliatory discharge in violation of California law.’

According to her legal documents, Martinez is demanding a jury trial. 

Irving, who has previously led entertainment industry powerhouses including Live Nation Entertainment, IMG and Ticketmaster, has also built an impressive real estate portfolio.

According to several profiles, the Azoffs keep houses in Beverly Hills, Cabo San Lucas, Colorado, and recently sold a beachside home in Malibu, California.
