Queen Latifah

is being sued by a make-up artist and a stylist who claim she owes them $1 million dollars combined. Roxanna Floyd says she lost $700,000 when the rapper-actress failed to pay her for work she did between July 2005 and February 2008. In a separate lawsuit, celebrity fashion stylist Susan Moses said she was cheated of $300,000 during the same period.
The lawsuits were filed Monday in federal court in Manhattan.

...how do you wait for $700,000 of your services to be rendered before you get paid something or quit....

...by $20 my ass would have been packin' my shit up or walkin out with King Latifah's shit....

Whatever!

I assume as a clebrity with an income unlike the average person they thought she could pay her debt. They probably extended her more credit and time because of her status. They could have been getting the run around, broken promises, anything so you just never know.

In due time....

Yea 3 years waiting for a paycheck and then suing? The wheels in her head move mighty slow.

They should have accounting classes at beautician school.

Something isn't right here. Three years of not getting paid and you keep working??? Not buying it. And to the commentor who said she problably continued to work because she figured Latifah was good for it... how many make up artist do you know who can work for that long without getting paid or who can let a couple hundred G's slide for a few years???

@ 11:39 I'm guessing you meant me. I don't know any, nor would I personally let that shit slide for so long. I was just giving the flip side of it. It could be some bullshit and there may be some truth. Celebs skip out on people,taxes,debts and shit all the time. Like I said before though in due time...

Latifah had worked with Roxanna Floyd with the Cover girl cosmetics line ( I remember seeing them both during a episode of ANTM). I guess she waited so long because Latifah gave her that huge opportunity.

I think this story is true because a few years I remember Fox 5 TV in New York had interviewed a owner of a recording studio that was suing Latifah for unpaid bills.

I don't know. This sounds a little off. I've read for years that La La has had a long-term affair with her trainer. Maybe these ladies were her side pieces and she cut them out. $700K is a ALOT of money for makeup even over three years. I thought the Cover Girl people did her fae and she sure hasn't lost any weight lately. None of these heffas are earning their keep. mmphf.

WMS is on point... Ole girl bet' not take this to Judge Mathis. Dat nigga'll give her one of them looks and be like "prove ya case...do you have any proof?"

Game over

Hail to the Queen

I'm mad they changed the Queen Collection for the worst. The makeup line was just fine until they did a switcheroo on the colors.
