The man who America has had in the back of their minds all week is finally speaking up!
Magic Johnson, reportedly one of the nicest dudes on the planet, is being SUED by a former employee!
Lanita Thomas worked as a flight attendant on Magic's private jet, and is suing because she believes she was fired for no reason. She had been with the team from 2004 to this past September.
The word is that she alleges she was fired after turning up 15 minutes late for work, but says she was late due to running errands for Johnson. If that were the case, then she wouldn't be fired. We can't imagine that would ever be the reason.
There has to be more to this story, and we'll probably find out — she's seeking unspecified damages for wrongful termination, and overtime pay.
Everybody is so quick to sue these days!
