The former personal assistant to Lars Ulrich filed a lawsuit claiming the Metallica drummer violated state and federal laws by failing to pay him overtime.

Steven Wiig claimed he worked between 50 and 70 hours per week, on duty at Ulrich’s home, in recording studios and during Metallica’s worldwide tours.

He claims that his job duties included maintaining Ulrich’s music and movie collections, hosting guests at concerts, driving Ulrich to late-night social events, videotaping personal and professional appearances and handling issues related to the musician’s art collection.

Wiig filed suit in Marin County, alleging violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and the California Labor Code.
