PRNewsFoto/TJL ProductionsSeems like just yesterday that Patti LaBelle was forking over $100,000 to settle an ******* lawsuit. That was last month, and now she's got new legal drama to tend to.
According to CourthouseNews.com, the soul singer's longtime manager Damascene Pierre Paul is ***** her, claiming that she owes him $33,333 and two pieces of real estate, including his own home. Patti and the manager parted ways in 2009. He says they tied up loose strings, agreeing to a settlement that required LaBelle to pay him a percentage of royalties from concerts, records and so on.
Damascene claims, according to CourthouseNews.com, that Patti refuses to cough up $33,000, which is the final installment of a $125,000 payment. The website reports that he's now seeking more than $50,000 in damages for breach of contract and specific performance of the settlement agreement.
