Cesar and Ilusion Millan Foundation filed a complaint in L.A. Superior Court today claiming unspecified damages for being fired and stripped of his title.
Allegedly, he took a leave of absence to seek treatment for alcoholism in June, returned to work the next month clean and sober, to be fired. He says he was assured before he took the leave of absence that his job would be safe.
Hawkins alleges the very first day he returned to work, company big wigs stripped him of his title. Then a few weeks later he says he was given an ultimatum -- a pay cut or the door. Hawkins says when he asked for a little time to think about it, he was fired.
We shall see how Cesar Milan whispers his way outta this one.
