Leave it to Snoop Dogg to have an assistant whom he pays a salary of $50,000 to roll his special cigarettes. The lucky woman, Renegade Piranha, is a professional roller and has been rolling for the famous rapper since 2016. We had no idea people could roll for a living!
Since 1992, Snoop Dogg shot to stardom with hits like “Gin and Juice” and “Drop It Like It’s Hot” and continues to be legendary in the hip-hop world. His recent cooking show with Martha Stewart is as hilarious as it is strange, and hey, the man is definitely too busy to roll his own stuff.
Tracy McNew – Eminem
Since his “Slim Shady” LP came out in 1999, Eminem has become one of the biggest and wealthiest rappers in the world. Not surprisingly, he walks around with an entourage, providing jobs for a full staff of people – bodyguards, managers, you name it – and one of his most trusted is his personal assistant, Tracy McNew.
McNew has been by the rapper’s side for over 14 years and currently earns a reported salary of around $150,000. Eminem and McNew have become so close that there have even been rumors of the two dating, which they have, of course, denied.
Melissa Rooker – Clint Eastwood
The dashing Clint Eastwood has been a Hollywood staple since the mid-60s when he began starring in Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns and became known as the “Man with No Name.” Since then, he has starred in some of cinema’s most famous classics. Eastwood has four Academy Awards and four Golden Globes under his belt and, apparently, is a joy to work with, according to Melissa Rooker.
Rooker was Eastwood’s assistant for over 15 years; she read and analyzed potential scripts, helped him with his production company, and did everything in between. She retired with a hefty savings account in 2001 to spend more time with her family.
Bob Halley – Elton John
One of the world’s most famous musicians and most glamorous rockstars, Elton John, has been gracing us with his music since the early 70s. Of course, it is to be expected that a man like him would need a dedicated personal assistant, which he had in Bob Halley. Halley worked for Elton for 30 years, practically his entire adult life.
Unfortunately, in 2008, they had a falling out, and Halley left his job of three decades. In a crazy turn of events, it appears Halley had been a close friend to Elton’s mother, who left him her entire fortune when she passed in 2018. Drama!
Lianna Shakhnazaryan – Mariah Carey
Mariah Carey’s vocal talent is undisputed – her five-octave range has earned her the nickname “Songbird Supreme,” and she’s been topping the charts since the early 2000s. But apparently, the “All I Want for Christmas Is You” singer doesn’t have a good track record when it comes to keeping employees.
Her former assistant, Lianna Shakhnazaryan, only lasted two years and was abruptly fired after Carey claimed she had violated the NDA clause in her contract and filmed intimate videos of Carey. But the drama didn’t end there, as Lianna sued Carey back and said she’d suffered harassment and battery while working for the diva.
