According to the lawyer of Patty LaBelle, and as informed to the New York Post, the Disco diva has agreed to pay an amount to the tune of $100,000 for settling a matter before it goes to the jury. Allegedly, the incident occurred while LaBelle was renting a Trump Place apartment for a three-month, $50,000 a week appearance in the Broadway musical “Fela!”

According to court papers, the Disco diva had thrown tantrums and verbally abused a pregnant woman and her little girl child in the lobby of the building in Nov. 10, 2010. The complaints made by plaintiff Roseanna Monk show the Grammy-winning singer called Roseanna a “c-t” and used the F-word while drenching pregnant Roseanna with bottled water. The diva’s sensitive temper was apparently upset because Roseanna’s 18-month old girl was found playing near the lobby door of the great star’s rented apartment.

When Roseanna picked up the child and cradled her in her arms and told the Grammy-winning star that her behavior was scaring the child – the enraged LaBelle had to be held back by her entourage.

LaBelle, who had earlier denied that she was “liable in any way for any alleged claims of injury” and said the girl’s family was “more than 50 percent at fault,” in a federal court at Manhattan last year, has now changed her tune and singing a different song. The reasons, of course, are apparent as Sam Davis, the lawyer for the Monks says, if the case goes to trial “The jury would be shaking their heads” when looking at the toddler and finding “That mean woman over there, with the 300-pound bodyguard, was yelling at her.”

The “Lady Marmalade” singer, according to court documents, has caused the child, who is now 3 ½ years old to suffer “personality changes, sleep disorder” and “increased fear of strangers.”

And no, the Monks are not in this for grabbing money from a celebrity. Roseanna, who is a former kindergarten teacher, has said all proceeds would be donated to the Hope & Heroes Children’s Cancer Fund. She said, “This is an opportunity for Patti LaBelle to help a lot of children, and I feel good about that.”
