Singer Patti LaBelle To Pay $100,000 For Throwing Water And Curses

Who knew throwing a bit of water and a few curses can prove to be so expensive. Well, Singer Patti Labelle sure found out the hard way, whatever you do in America; never make the mistake of allowing yourself to get sued. In today’s litigious society you could get sued for anything and everything. Even words spoken rudely to someone can cause enough grief and trauma, which can then warrant a monetary settlement.

Patty as it turns out, allegedly hurled curses and water, at a woman and her baby. The victim Roseanna Monk and her husband Kevin consequently filed a lawsuit against Patti. Something that Patti probably hadn’t anticipated would happen, even in her wildest imagination. Bet she is regretting the godforsaken moment when she let her anger get the better of her. In the days of old, such matters were very simply settled, either by flogging in a public place or by the two parties in question roughing it out amongst themselves.

Patti surely would have preferred some flogging or a glass of water thrown at her face in return, rather than having to part with the $100,000. She probably wouldn’t even mind if five glasses or a bucket of water was hurled at her, if it meant she could keep her $100,000. Patti as it turns out, settled the case even before being deposed, which could only mean two things, one that Patti is obviously guilty of the ‘heinous’ crime she has been accused of and the other that, she was worried she would have to part with much more than a $100,000, if the case was allowed to move forward.

This could start a very dangerous trend though, as people will begin instigating celebrities just so they hurl something in anger, which can then be used as a cause for a lawsuit. Just imagine if water and a few curses can fetch you $100,000, there is no guessing the enormity of the amount that would be awarded to victims, who get alcohol or something else thrown at them. Patti on her part shall have to begin thinking up other ways to vent her anger, and should ideally consult her lawyer, before she can even think of throwing a tantrum.
