Lady Marmalade herself Patti LaBelle is being sued by a New York couple, who accuses Patti of yelling and trying to punch the mother of an 18-month old child.
Kevin and Roseanna Monk say they only decided to fill a lawsuit, after hearing about an incident in Houston with Patti’s entourage assaulting a West Point cadet. This ain’t a good look for Patti, yo! This is something…I don’t know…Mary J Blige would do. Don’t look at me like that. I like Mary but y’all know she’s straight hood. Check out the story of what they say went down in the lobby of a upper West Side apartment building lobby, after the jump…
The Monks’ lawyer, Sam Davis, said Genevieve, then 18 months old, was scampering around the lobby of a Riverside Blvd. apartment building on the upper West Side in November when LaBelle, in full star regalia with oversize shades and a fur coat, started yelling.
“‘What are you doing letting your kid run around like that?'” Davis quoted LaBelle as asking Roseanna Monk.
He said LaBelle, a mother of five whose real name is Patricia Louise Holte, then started “screaming at my client, throwing water from a bottle at the mother’s face and the baby’s face.”
Davis said Monk, a kindergarten teacher, scooped up her child.
“‘Are you happy that this is what you have done to this baby?!'” Davis said Roseanna Monk asked the singer.
At that point LaBelle, “tries to take a swing” at his client, he said.
LaBelle’s entourage then shoved her into a black car and the baby violently threw up all over her mother, Davis said.
Now, I could totally see Patti saying something if the child was running around the lobby and the mother wasn’t paying attention. But throwing water from a water bottle and trying to swing? Eeehhhh. Not buying that so much. But we’ll see how far this thing goes!
