Justin Timberlake Getting Sued for Sexual Discrimination

Justin Timberlake may be headed to court soon as he is facing legal action from an ex employee of his restaurant.

JT is being sued for sexual discrimination by two of the managers at his New York restaurant.

In papers filed on Thursday at Manhattan Supreme Court, Alison MCDaniel, a former manager at Southern Hospitality, accuses JT's business partners Eytan Sugarman and Ronnie Kaplan of "vile and discriminatory conduct."

The lawsuit claims that MCDaniel got fired after writing to bosses to complain of harassment.

The lawsuit states, "One or more of Southern Hospitality's owners and/or executive managers bullied, degraded, harassed and ultimately discharged MCDaniel... because of her gender. In at least one instance, defendants Sugarman and Kaplan viewed... pornography while in a locked room with MCDaniel and made fun of her when she began crying."

A representative for the restaurant says, "We will vigorously defend any allegations of wrongdoing or improper behavior." JT must be pissed about this one. Although it has nothing to do with him per say, JT certainly hates negative publicity associated with his name.
