Magic Johnson


'Red Vines' Lawsuit

10/26/2013 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

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?

Babe Ruth was on the Yankees, Red Sox and Braves. Never the Dodgers.

I'm SOooo... glad to have an opportunity to comment AND... question regarding... Money... "Magic Johnson!" Here goes... Magic said... He was diagnosed with... HIV... MANY moons ago! SInce then... he has had what... 2 more children with his wife?? Ummm.... Is she NOT infected with the virus AND... is his children NOT infected as well?? Really... Magic is as healthy as a damn horse!! Here's my thought on HIS HIV story! I think... the GOVERNMENT or someone connected to OUR country said... Magic... you're a GREAT role model... people will listen up... pay up AND... we can help balance our f'd up budget... can you help us out... because we are total f@ck ups AND... have NO BUSINESS running this country!! Why don't you come forward AND... say you have HIV AND... we'll pay you... $500 MILLION plus DOLLARS!! (Maybe more) I DO NOT think... Magic EVER had HIV and he... himself AND... his family should be ashamed of themselves for ALL... of the money they have put into their pockets!! SHAME ON YOU AND... OUR GOVERNMENT AND... if Mr. Magic Johnson holds the cure... for this TERRIBLE disease... SHAME ON YOU AGAIN!!!!
