I Just Called To Say I Sued You

3/14/2007 8:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Stevie WonderStevie Wonder has been sued by a man who claims he was fired from Stevie's Los Angeles radio station after questioning an alleged sexual harassment incident involving the music legend.

TMZ obtained the lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, in which Reginald Thomas, Jr. claims he was fired by KJLH in Los Angeles, after talking with his boss about allegations that employees at the station engaged in payola.

And there's a sexual harassment allegation as well. Thomas claims in the lawsuit that he informed his boss that "Stevie Wonder had telephoned one of the sales associates late at night on her cellular phone." When Thomas brought up the alleged incident, he claims one of his bosses responded, "You never know who he's f...ing around here. It's a lawsuit waiting to happen."

Thomas is suing Wonder, who owns KJLH, as well as the station itself, for more than $3.5 million.

TMZ placed calls to Wonder's publicist, who was not available. Ditto KJLH.

Stevie Wonder is the leader of the Black community????? Since when????? You just made one of the dummiest comments of all time. Stevie Wonder is the leader of nothing, perhaps is band or the radio station he owns. Cheating men are cheating men no matter what their race is. White men cheat on their wives to, if you did not know that you need to get a big clue.

As far as the man suing him, I don't understand why he is suing him. Stevie Wonder is screwing some employee that is the business of the employee, stevie wonder and his wife. The employee has not complaint so I do not understand the point of this story.

Big deal. If Stevie is screwing a lady at work, doesnt sound like she is complaining. This poor guy is blind. If he wasnt famous he may have a hard time even getting sex. I dont mean it is okay to sexually harass if you are disabled. But it Doesnt sound like anyone is being hurt here, so what the hell.

If Stevie Wonder is blind, how the hell was he able to dial the girl's number??? Unless he has a special phone for blind folks.

To Kingcosby jackson, posting #2. why is there always some misguided person like yourself who tries to make an issue into a black or racial issue when it is not? This thing with Stevie Wonder does not matter if he was white, black, of polka dotted. And Stevie Wonder is not a black leader. Somoene like Al Sharpton is a black leader, Wonder is an entertainer. Its no wonder this world stays so racially screwed up. It is becasue of people like yourself who whine and cry and are determined to make an issue racsist or racial when it is not. And Bill Clinton did not get away with it. The man was crucified by the public over what he did. As far as this thing with Stevie Wonder goes, it doesnt sound to me like anyone is being harmed here, it doesnt even sound like the woman who is being so called harrassed is complaing. I dont care who Stevie wonder sleeps with. It sounds like this situation is best left alone though the person fired may have a complaint, legitiamtely. However, your bitching about this happening because Stevie wonder is black is totally assine. I am a caucasian oerson who has black friends, and have dated black men, But your turning this issue into a racial issue is wrong as hell. And just plain stupid.
