Queen Latifah is getting sued by some former associates, that say she gave them the “ugly” treatment and neglected to pay them for services rendered.
Media mogul/actress and often cosmetic diva Queen Latifah has received a double legal blow according to Manhattan based court documents.
Latifah, known widely for her relationship with CoverGirl cosmetics, has been sued by both celebrity cosmetology consultant Roxanna Floyd and celebrity fashion stylist Susan Moses. Both say Latifah gave them ‘ugly’ treatment and cheated them out of pay for work they did between July 2005 and February 2008.
According to each lawsuit, filed in federal court Monday, the fashion divas Floyd and Moses are claiming damages in the amount of $700,000 and $300,000 respectively.
At press time a spokesman for Latifah said the suits have no merit but issued no further comment.
Queen Latifah in recent years has not only established a relationship with cosmetic giant Cover Girl but has enjoyed lucrative deals with the film and television world, including the 2008 blockbuster “The Secret Life of Bees” starring Alicia Keys and Jennifer Hudson.
