Queen Latifah sued by makeup, fashion folk



The Juice* has always been a fan of Queen Latifah, and has noticed girl has been looking good lately (especially with all the ubiquitous Cover Girl makeup adverts), but what's her secret? Apparently it's cheating a makeup artist and fashion stylist out of $1 million in overhauling.

Tbd-queenlatifah040109 Celebrity cosmetology consultant 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, the AP reports. 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.

Her majesty's spokewoman says the Queen can't comment on the lawsuits, but did specify they have no merit. Because it's not like celebrities have a tendency to feel entitled to free services when they're really not or anything.
