Subscribe to Madonna alerts

Superstar Madonna is facing a legal battle with a former employee of her Maverick Films company, who claims she was sexually harassed and wrongfully terminated.

YAEL OESTREICH filed suit Wednesday (09MAR05) in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging the firm's chief executive officer (CEO) MARK MORGAN failed to fulfil his promise of a salary increase and fired her in July (04) with no due reason.

Oestreich's suit lists Maverick Films co-founder Guy Oseary and Madonna as defendants, claiming they "failed to conduct a reasonable investigation into defendant Morgan's background before hiring him and knew or should have known of his propensity for sexual harassment and discrimination".

Oestreich, who worked as a vice president of development, alleges Morgan told her she was "uptight" for not joining in a conversation about sex, during a November 2003 social outing.

She also claims Morgan accused her of having sexual relations with three agents from UNITED TALENT AGENCY, her former employer.

Oestreich is seeking general damages, medical expenses, loss of earnings and punitive and exemplary damages.
