Chef to Don King -- You Burned Me!

11/15/2007 3:17 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

And in this corner, boxing's horrible-haired pimptrepreneur, Don King, who may have boxed himself into some trouble with Florida labor laws -- and now his former cook has served him up a big fat lawsuit!

Kevin Barnes was hired last year by Henrietta and Don King to prepare fancy chow at their $10 million Palm Beach mansion. Barnes and his fellow workers say they worked all kinds of overtime at the Kings' palace, but never got paid for it -- a recipe for a delicious court case.

Amazingly, King had no comment.

Do not be persuaded by these parsimonious prevaricators, they lie like hounds as they attempt to besmirch my good name for their own pecuniary interest. I am sure that once I have my glorious day in court that THE WHOLE WORLD SHALL SEE, that I am as innocant as the driven snow! Free at last! Free at last! Thank God 'al mighty we're free at last! Only in America!

He's Boring now    

Not another uppity hi profile celebrity wanna be (Couric, Liza, Marlo) who mistreat the hired help. When will these people learn that those who work for them are closer to them than nearly anyone and can make their lives miserable if they are not treated right? Dummies the whole bunch of them.

I love the Butler, Maid and now Cook stories that show the other side of these Liars and mistreaters of the mere common, or as Leona Helmsely put it, "little people".

Pay up you convicted Murderer

Speaking as a member of the working class, I will never understand how someone who lives in a 10 million dollar mansion could underpay hardworking people who serve them. Bastards! The worst part is, a lot of these people started out in rags themselves but once they worked/sleazed/slimed/ their way to riches they forgot where they came from.
