Hip-Hop icon and Cover Girl spokeswoman Queen Latifah is being sued by two former employees over allegations of breach of contract.
The two suits claim that Latifah, real name Dana Owens, employed both Roxanna Floyd and Susan Moses for work on her Queen Collection Cover Girl and Curvations lines.
Floyd alleges that she was employed by Latifah for over 10 years, and was responsible for developing, producing, and marketing defendants Queen Collection make-up line for Cover Girl.
Because she was allegedly never compensated for her work, Floyd is seeking $700,000 in damages on the grounds of unjust enrichment and breach of contract.
Moses lawsuit states she worked for 3 years on Latifahs Vanity Fair Curvations line as a stylist and developer.
She claims that even after her services tab exceeded $150,000, Latifah continues to completely fail to pay plaintiff for her services and a large portion of her expenses relating to Curvations.
Moses is now seeking $300,000, also on the ground of breach of contract and unjust enrichment.
Although the two federal lawsuits were filed separately, both plaintiffs are being represented by Carmen Giordano.
In addition to herself, Owens Queen Latifah Inc. was also named in both suits.
At press time, Queen Latifah could not be reached for comment.
