Top Stories Around The City

Renters in Los Angeles and Orange counties finally experience some relief from hefty rent hikes! As of August 1, the maximum allowable rent increase under California's Tenant Protection Act will drop from 10% to 8.8%. This change, implemented in 2019, sets a cap on annual rent increases, covering many rental properties but not all. The allowable rent hikes are tied to inflation rates, with the past year witnessing the 10% limit due to higher inflation figures. However, the recent lower inflation numbers will result in a more moderate 8.8% rent hike limit in L.A. and Orange counties until July 31, 2024.

Lizzo denies the allegations, stating that the stories are sensationalized and come from former employees who acted unprofessionally. The lawsuit targets Lizzo, her production company Big Grrrl Big Touring Inc., and the captain of her dance team, Shirlene Quigley, accusing them of creating an "intolerable" work environment that exposed the plaintiffs to unwanted nudity and lewd discussions.
