Bradley Weinbrand has filed suit against The Runaways star alleging she underpaid him and made him work long hours without overtime.
The lawsuit was filed in Nassau County Supreme Court in New York and obtained by the New York Post.

Miley Cyrus says her breasts made Sir Paul McCartney ''uncomfortable'' when they met when she inducted Joan Jett into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame.
The 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker met the Beatles star when she inducted Joan Jett into the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year but she was only able to relax because she saw how uneasy the 73-year-old musician felt by her skimpy outfit.
She said: ''Not that it started this way but I did the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame with Joan Jett, I inducted her, and we were talking to Paul McCartney and I saw him not knowing how to talk to me.

U.s. Rocker Joan Jett Has Responded To Allegations The Former Manager Of The Runaways Raped Her Bandmate Jackie Fox, Insisting She Was "Unaware Of This Incident".
Fox, former member of the Jett-fronted 1970s rock band, told The Huffington Post that Kim Fowley assaulted her after a roadie insisted she take a Quaalude pill. Fox also claimed that Jett, and others, watched it happen, according to Billboard.com.
Fox alleges the incident took place on New Year's Eve in 1975, and says, "I remember opening my eyes, Kim Fowley was raping me, and there were people watching me."
However, Jett has now responded to the claim, saying in a statement, "Anyone who truly knows me understands that if I was aware of a friend or bandmate being violated, I would not stand by while it happened... For a group of young teenagers thrust into 70s rock stardom there were relationships that were bizarre, but I was not aware of this incident."

Joan Jett's Former The Runaways Bandmate Jackie Fox Has Accused The Group's Late Producer And Manager Of Raping Her When She Was 16.
The bassist claims Kim Fowley sexually assaulted her in a motel room on New Year's Eve, 1975 in front of two of her bandmates.
Fox tells The Huffington Post she was forced to take Quaalude's and was unable to react when Fowley, who lost his battle with stomach cancer in January (15), attacked her following a gig in Los Angeles.
She says, "You don’t know what terror is until you realise something bad is about to happen to you and you can't move a muscle. I can't move. I can't speak. All I can do is look him in the eye and do the best I can do to communicate: 'Please say no'.

Dave Grohl Performed From A Giant Throne During The Foo Fighters' First Gig Since Pulling Out Of A Number Of Shows Due To The Frontman's Broken Leg.
The rock band played a 20th anniversary concert at the Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium in Washington, D.C. on Saturday (04July15), and Grohl spent the show seated in a giant throne, surrounded by guitars, lights and amps.
It was the group's first outing since cancelling a number of European dates and a headline slot at Britain's Glastonbury Festival after Grohl broke his leg in a stage fall at a show in Sweden in June (15).
During the Independence Day concert, the band played a string of hits including Everlong, Monkey Wrench and Best of You, while Grohl's mother also joined the rockers onstage for a rendition of For All The Cows.

The pair performed Jett's song 'Different'.
Miley Cyrus turns her backyard into a rock show in a surprise collaboration with guitar legend Joan Jett, performing the latter's song 'Different'. It's all for a good cause too, with the duet launching her new charity the Happy Hippie Foundation.
Miley Cyrus shows off her rock side
The 22-year-old pop starlet may divide opinion, but there's no doubt this young lady has pipes. Not only can she belt out a hit pop number ('Wrecking Ball'), rap (Mike WiLL Made-It's '23'), croon country-style (her cover of Dolly Parton's 'Jolene'), but her husky tone is also amazingly fit to thrash out a punk tune in the form of Joan Jett's 'Different'; a song which featured on the rockstar's 2013 album 'Unvarnished'.
Miley Cyrus Has Recruited Pals Joan Jett And Ariana Grande To Rock Out In Her Backyard For A Series Of Videos Aimed At Raising Funds For Her New Charity, The Happy Hippy Foundation.
The Wrecking Ball hitmaker launched her crusade to help displaced youths during the MTV Video Music Awards last year (14), when she invited homeless pal Jesse Helt to accept her Video of the Year prize on behalf of all needy youngsters across the U.S.
She has since set up the Happy Hippy Foundation to provide help and support to those in need and the pop star recently held a series of jam sessions in her own Los Angeles backyard in an effort to raise money for the cause.
Videos of each get-together, which also featured Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace and singer/songwriter Melanie Safka, will debut exclusively on Facebook.com, where fans will be encouraged to donate.

Cyrus has launched the ‘Happy Hippie Foundation’ to help homeless and LGBT youth.
While some might be more concerned about her love life or the colour of her armpit hair Miley Cyrus is putting her fame to good use, by launching a charity which helps homeless and LGBT youth. The Happy Hippie Foundation aims to raise funds and increase awareness about youth homelessness as well as creating digital support groups for LGBT youths and their families.
Cyrus at the Met Gala on Monday evening.
"The position I'm in, I feel like I've got a lot of power, but so many kids don't feel that way. They're under their parents' rule,” Cyrus told The Associated Press on Monday. The 22 year old added that she wanted to use her fame for good, describing Bruce Jenner as her 'hero' for raising awareness of transgender issues.
