SETTLES

'Red Vines' Lawsuit

Magic Johnson
will NOT have to defend himself in court against a former employee who claims he bullied her over fresh snacks, because TMZ has learned the case has settled.

Magic was sued by Lanita Thomas, who claims she served as his personal flight attendant until she was fired for being 15 minutes late one day.

According to the suit, she was late because Magic insisted on a particular type of turkey meat on his sandwiches and she was held up at the counter.  She also claimed he was "very particular that all snacks were fresh" ... especially when it came to liquorice.

Although the terms of the settlement are confidential, sources connected with the case tell TMZ ... Magic paid the woman for overtime, but she got no money for the alleged snack bullying.

Now that he owns the Dodgers, his new favorite has gotta be Baby Ruth ... right?

When TMZ says Magic owns the Dogers, that means he owns less than one percent and the ownership just made him the face of the Dogers to get fans and talent.

i mean like how do you have a 'personalized assistant' who does not want to do chit for you? then why have them in the first place if they are 'annoyed' by and do not want to 'abide by your special requests'? this broad is hella dum. sounds like she was 'in it' for other reasons from the get go. namely a 'lawsuit' or similar, like this. for celebrity. lame. this is why the whole entertainment industry is dead. because so many dumb people think the 'easy route' of' scandal and discord' is the big jackpot. sucking c0ck and all. that is why there is absolutely zero content left in hollywood. because it's full of, overfilled with talentless morons who don't know chit.

She was late so she deserved to be fired. She knew what he liked so she should have left herself more time to get what he liked. As for his demands, they seem quite reasonable.

Can't be late and the turkey has to be JUST right, but his son being a flaming homo, no problem there at all, huh? What a creep this guy is. He needs to get his priorities in order and get his son some help.
