Lawsuit: LaBelle Threw Water At Tot In NYC Lobby

07:01 AM Tuesday 11/15/11 |   |

R&B diva Patti LaBelle hurled curses – and half a bottle of water – at a woman and her 18-month-old daughter after a dust-up over parenting in an apartment building lobby, according to a lawsuit filed Monday and the family’s lawyer.

LaBelle’s publicists and lawyer didn’t immediately respond to Kevin and Roseanna Monk’s lawsuit.

The couple live in a Manhattan building where the Grammy Award-winning singer stayed for a time while appearing in the Broadway musical “Fela!” last fall, said the Monks’ lawyer, Samuel L. Davis.

He said LaBelle chastised Roseanna Monk for letting the toddler take some steps away from the mother as she grappled with some luggage and a car seat in the building’s lobby on the afternoon of Nov. 11, 2010. After Monk scooped up the child and told LaBelle it was none of her business, the singer threw water on them from a bottle she was carrying and then launched into an obscenity-filled tirade, he said.

When the child started wailing, Roseanna Monk made a remark to LaBelle, and the singer charged at her and tried to hit her, Davis said.

The Monks filed a complaint with police; no arrests were made.

The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages, comes five months after a West Point cadet sued LaBelle over a Houston airport scuffle with her bodyguards. He said they attacked him for no reason in March 2010. She countersued the cadet, saying he tried to get into her limousine and was drunk and using racial slurs, which he denied.

Davis said Roseanna Monk had asked LaBelle for an apology and a donation to a children’s cancer charity but was rebuffed. The Monks feel “someone’s got to teach her even a diva can’t attack and frighten and assault regular people in the building,” their lawyer said.

    why is it that as soon as someone tries to sue a celebrity everyone attacks them. the comments the last couple of people have posted are absurd. i have been a patti labelle fan for over 20  years and have spent time with her personally and she has never been anything except gracious to her fans and people around, sounds to me like another try to get a buck quick scheme to me.police report no arrests hello. people open your eyes and stop trash talking.

    Patti's definitely doing her part to make sure the term "diva" retains a negative connotation. If she was so concerned about the toddler toddling away, she could have (a) helped corral the kid or (b) helped with the luggage or car seat. If only it had been caught on tape, she'd be lucky to fill casino lounges.

    When is someone going to put this has-been singer into her place?   She is still playing Indian casino gigs.  Maybe people should boycott her shows and dry up her income.  Having her thugs attack a West Point cadet for being in her highness' space should land her in jail but as long as he gets millions of dollars in settlement from her...that is probably better punishment

    Patti LaBelle is the best example I can think of for white trash.
