Flo Rida: My So-Called Ex-Assistant Is a Thankless Parasite

No good deed goes unpunished — at least according to Flo Rida”s lawyer, who claims the so-called ex-assistant that”s suing the rapper is an ungrateful freeloader who took advantage of his generosity.

broke the story … some woman named Mahogany Miller filed a lawsuit against Flo Rida, claiming the rapper worked her to the bone last summer for a paltry $3.08 an hour. Miller claims she confronted Flo over the low wages, and he fired her.

But Flo”s lawyer Sandy Becher claims she”s delusional — telling us, the girl was never officially hired as an employee in Flo”s office … she was an unpaid volunteer, who begged to work for him as a first step in the music biz.

According to the lawyer, she was unqualified for an official position, so Flo took her under his wing as an intern-type worker — occasionally paying for her lunches or gas money, but nothing was ever guaranteed.

What”s more — Flo”s lawyer says the rapper didn”t fire Miller because she asked for money … he fired her because her “behavior was inappropriate for the workplace environment.” He wouldn”t specify why.

Flo tells us, “This is ridiculous that I gave someone an opportunity out of the goodness of my heart and now sadly I am being falsely targeted.”
