French Montana is being sued after his dog allegedly bit his former pool cleaner.

The 33-year-old rapper has landed in legal trouble after his German Shepherd Zane allegedly ''went off'' for no reason back in May last year and left Juan Lomeli with bloody puncture wounds in his arm - and now his former employee wants him to shell out for the injuries he sustained as a result and loss of earnings.

According to the court documents, obtained by TMZ, Mr Lomeli had worked for the 'Unforgettable' hitmaker for six months and had no trouble with his pet pooch.

However, something switched while he was servicing French's pool one day last year and the dog allegedly lunged at him and viciously attacked him with his jaws.

Mr Lomeli didn't go into detail about his wounds but he did claim that the injuries were so bad that he was unable to work for some time, and he would now like the rap star to cough up to help him claw back some of the cash he lost last year.

French hasn't had the easiest of times recently as his mansion in Calabasas, California, was broken into last month and the two armed male suspects reportedly managed to make off with some of his possessions at around eight in the morning.

Police were distributed as soon as they received the call about the robbery but, upon arrival at the property, the criminals had already managed to flee the scene.

There were at least two residents at the address when the crime took place but officers refused to confirm whether any of them were the 'Hurtin' Me' hitmaker.

It's not known how much was stolen - or what was taken - but no one was injured during the burglary as the paramedics and fire brigade were not called.
