An excerpt for the lawsuit:
The defendant singer Patti LaBelle ordered her bodyguards, the individual defendants, to attack the plaintiff as he talked on his cell phone and waited for his family to pick him up at the defendant airport.
"Apparently, LaBelle believed King was standing too close to her (no doubt expensive) luggage, even though he was oblivious to her presence and the danger he was in.
LaBelle lowered the window of her limousine and gave a command to her body guards." They first shoved the plaintiff, then hit him in the face with their fists before standing over him and taunting him as he lay on his back with a concussion.
LaBelle did not get out of her limo until the ambulance had taken plaintiff away. "Apparently deciding that a little bit of public relations was in order, defendant LaBelle stepped out of her limousine and smiled for photographs with Houston police officers, standing triumphantly over the pooled blood of King."
