Even though I still think Star deserves a good old fashion ass whipping for the whole Envy incident, I have to admit, this shit is pretty funny. If you listened to his show back in 03-04, you’ll remember he had a co-host named Prozac Girl. When the show got cancelled on Hot 97, they moved to Hartford, CT station Power 104.1 and Prozac (who’s real name is Keysha Whitaker) went with them. Well now she’s suing him because of a little incident that she says got her fired:
From the Connecticut Post:
During the May 24, 2004, broadcast, Torain (Star) spat on Candelaria (the show’s producer Miguel) and said, "all of you in here are going to get anointed with my spit," the suit alleges.
Following the show, the suit claims, Whitaker told Candelaria she would resign if Torain insisted upon "anointing her with his saliva."
Three days later, the suit claims, Candelaria shot a "phlegm-laden" launch at a character named "Crossover Negro Reese," a newsman. Torain then threatened to spit on Whitaker, who again objected, the suit charges.
At that point she was fired by Miguel and claims that she received a call from Star during which he told her she was let go because she was "sick" and "disabled." Ok, so this is pretty typical Star behavior and wouldn’t really make headlines if it wasn’t for the lawsuit, but goddamn that’s a funny story. Needless to say, somebody would be getting punched in the face if any spit ever came flying my way at any job, regardless of the setting.
