Caution: Diva nearby

Diva Patti LaBelle is facing a lawsuit for allegedly ordering her bodyguards to beat a man waiting for a ride outside a Houston airport terminal. The suit alleges that Richard King, a West Point cadet, was awaiting a ride at Bush Intercontinental Airport in mid-March when he was attacked by three bodyguards because he was standing too close to LaBelle’s luggage. King claims that LaBelle was seated in a limo, lowered the window and commanded her bodyguards to action. A surveillance video shows three men pushing and punching King and then walking away after knocking him to the ground. The video also shows Houston police taking photos of LaBelle, and King being placed into an ambulance.
