    Queen Latifah Faces Royal Legal Pain

    Queen Latifah, Cover Girl Ad Cover Girl

    Two of Queen Latifah's subjects have proven themselves to be none too loyal, filing separate lawsuits against the star for more than $1 million in allegedly unpaid fees.

    Makeup consultant Roxanna Floyd and stylist Susan Moses filed their coordinated suits in Manhattan federal court Monday against the Oscar-nominated, Grammy-winning Latifah, whose real name is Dana Owens.

    Floyd claims she's due roughly $700,000 for work done between July 2005 and February 2008 in developing, marketing and producing Latifah's Queen Collection for CoverGirl.

    As for Moses, she claims she's owed $300,000, which includes a $50,000 per year salary, during the same period for advising the 39-year-old entertainer on her Curvations full-figured lingerie line.

    Latifah spokeswoman Amanda Silverman said the lawsuits were "without merit."
