NBA legend Paul Pierce is being sued over an alleged marijuana deal gone bad — accused of screwing over the guy he hired to build and run his grow house!“The Truth” is being sued by Kenneth Johnson — who’s been described as a “master grower” when it comes to cannabis.In his suit, Johnson claims Pierce hired him back in 2016 to “design and develop a warehouse to cultivate cannabis from inception to completion.”Johnson claims Pierce offered him $10,000 per month — and required him to move out to L.A. … not a bad gig, right!?But, soon after they got started, Johnson says Pierce cut his pay to $4,000 — claiming they couldn’t afford the full rate until after there was product to be sold.Johnson claims things got worse from there … claiming Pierce and his company “cut corners” and didn’t even get the weed plants into the warehouse until late 2018.Even then, Johnson claims Pierce refused to pay him his promised $10,000 monthly rate — insisting they wouldn’t have the funds until after the first marijuana harvest.Things finally came to a head in Nov. 2019 — Johnson claims he still wasn’t getting his full pay so he left the company … while Pierce’s operation still owed him more than $42k in unpaid wages!
