WHAT CAUSED PATTI LABELLE TO FLIP OUT?
We were horrified all over again when it was announced that Patti LaBelle paid $100,000 to settle that lawsuit accusing her of verbally attacking a pregnant mother and child in the lobby of the New York apartment where LaBelle was living at the time. It’s a strange story – apparently Patti became enraged when she noted an 18 month old child playing in the lobby of her building. She yelled obscenities, shouted the f-word, called the mother the c-word, and drenched her with a bottle of water! The mother grabbed her crying daughter and accused Patti of scaring her, and Patti’s entourage had to hold her back from lunging at the pair and pulled her into a waiting car! The mother’s lawyer figured Patti settled because the jury would favor the little girl and said the money will be donated to a children’s cancer charity. We’d love to hear Patti’s side of this story.
