Patti LaBelle Settles Suit for $100K Following Dispute In Manhattan

R&B Diva Patti LaBelle Is Paying $100,00 For A Settlement Regarding a Dispute In Manhattan

R&B Diva Patti LaBelle Has Chosen To Settle In Manhattan Dispute

R&B diva Patti LaBelle has settled a dispute involving a woman and her child for $100,000, reports say. In 2010, the diva rented a Trump Place apartment for three months in Manhattan as she performed in the “Fela!” broadway musical, in which she made $50,000/week.

Allegedly LaBelle became irate with a then-pregnant woman and her then-18-month daughter in the lobby of the complex and shouted explicits at them and threw water on the mother. Court documents said the child, now 3 1/2, has suffered “personality changes, sleep disorder” and “increased fear of strangers.”

The child’s mother plans to donate the money from the settlement to a children’s cancer fund. “This is an opportunity for Patti LaBelle to help a lot of children, and I feel good about that,” she said. Details outlining why LaBelle became irate are unclear. The mother and the husband’s attorney said LaBelle opted to settle the case before even being deposed. He noted the difficulty that LaBelle would have faced at trial, when he would have brought the little girl into court and said, “That mean woman over there, with the 300-pound bodyguard, was yelling at her.” “The jury would be shaking their heads,” he said.

This isn’t LaBelle’s first run-in with the law. In June 2011 a West Point cadet filed civil suit against LaBelle after he was allegedly assaulted by her bodyguards at Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston in March. Houston police department is reviewing the conduct of officers responding to the incident after they posed for photographs with the singer, and have also filed assault charges against members of her entourage and warrants were issued. In August 2011, the cadet, who had initially been suspended from West Point for his involvement in the altercation, was allowed back in West Point. LaBelle has countersued alleging the cadet was drunk and using racial slurs.

      Be careful what you wish for, Erica. It might not be a celeb, but probably someone else will, and you won’t get a dime. A doctor once “snapped” at me as I attempted to politely say ‘hello’ when our paths crossed in a cafe. It was a wretched-up-from-the-gut vitriol, the likes of which I had never encountered in my life – all because I said ‘hello’ Heads rolled. He THOUGHT, wrongly, that I had pulled a “no-show’ the day before, when in fact his scheduler had failed to tell him that I had called in. I forgave him, but a year later, he did it again – only worse than the first. There are many unhinged people out and about these days: celebs, doctors, the status, amounts of degrees, education or money does not restrict them from acting out. The only reason this was settled was because a child witness was involved – which brought with it fears that a jury [rightly] would empathize with a 3 1/2 yr old. We must all protect ourselves from persons with short fuses and tempers (with money).

    Patty you know how the game is played.Folks looking for an easy way to make money.This sounds like a lie to me,especially about the 18 month old child. On the news today,the mother said the money was going to charity,probably her or the lawyers name.

    I’m pretty sure she’s a nice person; however, she’s only human like the rest of us. Maybe she was exhausted, performing night after night which can take a toll on anyone. Since she agreed to settle the that says something on her part, but this doesn’t mean she’s a bad person. People make mistakes.

    Thanks for your article. It is quite unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has had to handle terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, influenza, swine flu, and the first ever real global recession. Through everything the industry has proven to be powerful, resilient plus dynamic, acquiring new ways to deal with hardship. There are always fresh complications and opportunities to which the marketplace must all over again adapt and act in response.

    Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?

    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult
    time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
