  • NEW YORK (AP) — R&B diva Patti LaBelle has agreed to pay $100,000 to a Manhattan woman who accused her of hurling curses and water at her and her 18-month-old daughter during a dust-up over parenting in an apartment building lobby.

    Roseanna Monk and her husband, Kevin, filed a lawsuit against LaBelle last year.

    The couple lives in a Manhattan building where the Grammy Award-winning singer stayed while appearing in the Broadway musical "Fela!"

    The couple's lawyer, Sam Davis, tells the New York Post (http://bit.ly/TkIYJy ) LaBelle settled the case even before being deposed. The Monks will donate the money to a children's cancer charity.

    LaBelle's publicist declined to comment.

    According to the lawsuit, LaBelle chastised Roseanna Monk, threw a bottle of water and launched into an obscenity-filled tirade during the Nov. 11, 2010 argument.
