Earlier this month word came in that a Manhattan judge had ordered Jay-Z's 40/40 club management to turn over records of all employees in the past three years, for a class-action lawsuit filed by a former waitress. The suit claims the workers never received overtime or minimum wage. Now The NY Post reports that the club's general manager, Desiree Gonzalez, has told (ahem, threatened) some employees who might join in the suit. Allegedly she warned that she would "[bleep] up his tax life" to one, and told another she'd "lock him up" if he failed to sign a release from the suit.
