What the actual f**k??
Roseanna Monk is not only accusing legendary singer Patti LaBelle of screaming at her 18-month-old baby Genevieve, but she's also accused of throwing a punch at her, the mother.
Her lawyer, Sam Davis, says that when Genevieve was scampering around the lobby of a Riverside Blvd. apartment on the Upper West Side, LaBelle became upset and started yelling.
Wearing oversized shades and a fur coat, like the diva that she is, LaBelle apparently said:
"What are you doing letting your kid run around like that?"
Then, she started "screaming at my client, throwing water from a bottle at the mother's face and the baby's face."
When the mother asked LaBelle, "Are you happy that this is what you have done to this baby?" LaBelle allegedly "tried to take a swing."
Monk would have been satisfied with an apology, but when she read about an incident in Houston where LaBelle's hairdresser and bodyguard were accused of assaulting a West Point cadet (WTF?!?!), she decided to sue. Monk said:
"Violence seems to be part of their road show."
This is craaAAaazy! We love Patti, but violence is NEVER the answer!! Unacceptable!
