Medlock said she was retaliated against after she left a work trip early. The chef said she worked for Wayne for nearly 2 years until a disastrous trip to Vegas.

The chef said she went on the trip with Wayne and his friends for Memorial Day. She claimed that she was working and preparing meals like normal.

However, during the trip, she claimed to have been notified that her 10-year-old had injured his head and needed to be hospitalized back in Los Angeles.

Medlock said when it came time to leave, Wayne delayed the trips they booked because he was smoking on the airplane. The chef said she decided to book her own trip home and left the group. She said she told Wayne’s assistant before leaving.
