Patti LaBelle Being Sued For Being A Diva To A Baby

Patti LaBelle is one of the most respected diva's in music on stage. Off stage...it might be a different matter as she is being sued.

A mother from New York City is suing Patti LaBelle for disrespecting her and her 18th month old daughter.

Kevin and Roseanna Monk filed a lawsuit for an incident that took place in November 2010 at the Trump Towers for saying the legendary singer screamed at their daughter.  A full year after the fact.  Did they see "Tower Heist" and remember the incident?

The Monks at the time lived in the Towers for 2 years and LaBelle was staying there while performing in "Fela" on Broadway.

The Monks claim LaBelle said "‘Do you know what your daughter is doing?’ and The Monks responded back “‘Lady, mind your own business.’”

This allegedly set Patti off on them and even flinging water from a bottle at Roseanna and her daughter.  They said this made the daughter throw up.  Hmm.

It appears the Mrs. Monk went after Patti outside to say she got her daughter all wet and that Patti had to be restrained before she attacked Mrs. Monk.  She said her baby had a hard time sleeping after the incident.

Patti has yet to make a comment but we can bet she will file a countersuit and bring Trump Towers into the picture for allowing this incident to happen and the lawsuit to be filed in the first place.

Do you guys agree with Patti did?-DocFB

Diagnosis:  She did say she has a "New Attitude".....

Video: Patti LaBelle & Friends BET Awards Performance

 

Well, the BET Awards had it's ups and downs like all award shows.  The whole winner being presented on a tablet will now be the future instead of envelopes.

Also, the BET Awards took a page from the Grammys and had artists perform together, such as Mary J. Blige and Anita Baker.

The main stand out at an award show again was Cee Lo Green kicking off the Patti LaBelle & Friends performance.

Check it out above and let us know what you think.-Dr.FB

Diagnosis:  Divalicious!

"You change your mind, like a girl changes clothes."-Katy Perry

Bear with me everyone.  I am with you on this, OK?

So our funkenbabies report that Alicia Keys, Janelle Monae, Ezperanza Spaulding and Patti Labelle killed it at rehearsal for the Prince tribute, performing a mix of songs from his back catalog that were, quite simply, amazing.  

Missing from the tribute; Chaka Khan and Prince.

We hear that Prince did not make it to rehearsal and depending on who you talk to, he was either supposed to be there or he wasn't . 

I love it. I can only laugh.  This is Prince.  So unpredictable.  I love it.

So because of this, Prince MAY or MAY NOT be performing tomorrow night at the BET Awards.  We hope he does join them on stage and whatever happens, it will be a great night for the Purple One.

So we ask you this...will he or won't he?

Is Casey Anthony Guilty?

So Prince was in New York City to give Patti Labelle an award and it was surprise to Patti as it was kept very much on the hush hush. It seems a lot of people did not know as many celebs were speechless such as MC of the night Steve Harvey.

We learned that the night before, Prince stopped by the West Side Story After Party for the Tony's to visit with Lori Werner aka Lori Elle aka Diamond, who used to dance with Prince and is also a choreographer for West Side Story.  Karen Olivo along with other West Side Story cast members were in attendance while Prince was there.

Prince did promise to attend a West Side Story performance sometime in the future but not certain when. I wonder what outfit he would break out for that?

P.S.  Perez, Prince does not have two messed up hips. Perhaps you should do your homework before lifting a story from another site anyway.- Dr.FB

Prince was an unannounced special guest.  In fact, the lights went down on stage and then appeared with him center stage where he got one of the loudest cheers of the night.
