Patti Labelle Lawsuit

Hello Diva! Patti Labelle's (Alleged) Disgraceful Treatment of a Toddler

Patti Labelle might be in the market for a very good publicist. According to ABC News, a lawsuit was filed on Monday by Kevin and Roseanna Monk, claiming that the legendary songstress flew into a rage, allegedly screaming at Roseanna Monk and throwing water on both Monk and her 18-month-old daughter. What prompted this extreme reaction? Apparently Labelle (who has five children of her own) didn't approve of the way Rosanna Monk was supervising her daughter, and didn't appreciate Monk's response, "Lady, mind your own business," when confronted by the songstress. The little girl was understandably petrified, throwing up, and crying hysterically, and is apparently now having trouble sleeping through the night.

Being a diva is one thing, but this sounds totally beyond the scope of normal human behavior — can't imagine Aretha pulling this type of stunt. Have you ever witnessed anything like this? What's the most inappropriate reaction to a toddler you've ever seen?
