Patti Labelle is $100,000 lighter after opting to settling a case brought by Roseanna Monk alleging the singer of a profanity-laced tirade against her and her daughter. Labelle is accused of calling the mother a cunt and threw water on her after complaining her 18-month old daughter was playing near the lobby door of an Upper West Side apartment where Labelle was staying in 2010.
Roseanna Monk claims her daughter developed a whole host of problems as a result of the tirade.Um, I beg to differ, but Patti Labelle had no right to engage in such a hoodrat-type behavior. Patti Labelle is above that. Now the other shoe is going to drop in the case of the cadet, Richard King, who her bodyguard roughed up, even though it was quite obvious he was drunk. I am sure that settlement will be bigger. Her insurance company will tell her to get a ‘new attitude.’
Patti Labelle’s career has not been the same since she divorced her husband Armstead Edwards. It’s a real shame that such a great singer is going out with a whimper.
