Lawyer: LaBelle settles suit over NYC lobby run-in

NEW YORK — R&B diva Patti LaBelle has agreed to pay $100,000 to a Manhattan woman who accused her of hurling curses and water at her and her 18-month-old daughter during a dust-up over parenting in an apartment building lobby.

Roseanna Monk and her husband, Kevin, filed a lawsuit against LaBelle last year.

The couple lives in a Manhattan building where the Grammy Award-winning singer stayed while appearing in the Broadway musical “Fela!”

The couple’s lawyer, Sam Davis, tells the New York Post LaBelle settled the case even before being deposed. The Monks will donate the money to a children’s cancer charity.
