Magic Johnson Facing Legal Action From Former Employee


10/24/2012
.
(TMZ) Magic Johnson has been sued by a former employee who claims the NBA legend is super serious when it comes to snacks ... because he forced her to "regularly squeeze his red vines to make sure they were soft."

The woman behind the lawsuit is 45-year-old Lanita Thomas -- who claims she served as Magic's personal flight attendant on his private jet from 2004 until last month ... when Magic fired her.

In her suit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Thomas claims Magic was wrong when he told her she was let go because she showed up to work 15 minutes late one day.

Thomas claims the real reason Magic wanted her gone is because he wanted a "substantially younger woman" to service him in the air.

In her suit, Thomas admits she WAS 15 minutes late to work one day ... but says it was only because Magic insists on two specific types of turkey meat on his sandwiches ... and she was held up at the deli counter.

She also says Magic was "very particular that all snacks were fresh" ... especially when it came to liquorice.

In addition to wrongful termination, Lanita also claims Magic failed to pay her overtime and provide her with legally required breaks during her work shifts. She's asking for unspecified damages. more on this story
