's rich husband Ken Todd says he has a concrete reason to file a fat lawsuit ... claiming a construction worker attacked him with a cement chipper, then tried to extort him for $50,000.

Todd filed the lawsuit against Kevin and David Cazaref, claiming the two brothers had been hired to do construction work on Ken's P.U.M.P. Lounge in West Hollywood.

Ken says he observed Kevin (a man twice his size) using a concrete chipper unsafely last week, so Ken confronted him and attempted to show Kevin how to use it properly.

Kevin must have taken offense ... because Ken says the worker then "became enraged, grabbed and violently hurled the heavy concrete chipper" at him ... hurting his hip, leg, and knee.

According to Ken's lawsuit, Kevin's brother David approached threateningly in Kevin's defense -- at which point nearby police officers became involved.

No arrests were made, but Ken says the brothers later contacted him in an attempt to shake him down for $50,000 in exchange for keeping quiet about the altercation.

Ken's now demanding unspecified damages from the brothers, suing them for assault, battery, extortion, and more. We reached out to the brothers for comment, so far no word back.

I have worked for this guy personally. I am a contractor and this guys is not telling the truth. He is full of it and he is a bully. He is afraid and this is why he needs to make up this story. He is the attacker! The other gentleman was simply a young worker with no experience like the rest of the crew that he has working there. He has more illegal immigrants working there than a meat factory. His foreman Is a joke and also had no license or maybe even a social security number. He should be a man and be honest and not destroy a young mans life.
