Pink Cover Singer Sued for $10 Million for Not Being Attractive Enough

(Radio.com) Pink cover bands are, apparently, serious business. At least, that's what a lawsuit filed in New York seems to indicate. The frontwoman of a Pink cover band has been sued for $10 million by the creator of the group, claiming she lacked both talent and sex appeal - and that ruined the band.

According to the New York Post, Charles Bonfante, an attorney on Long Island, sued Collette McLafferty, who lives on the Lower East Side in Manhattan. McLafferty, 40, was the frontwoman for the band who Bonfante claimed, along with the other band members, was "subpar" with "pitch problems" and "didn't look the part, or at least contribute to the overall aesthetics of the band."

"The really insulting part is he said I would harm the public because I can't sing and I'm too unattractive to front this kind of a band," McLafferty said. "I don't think it's his place to tell anyone that they're not good looking enough to follow their dreams."

The band went under the name Funhouse - after Pink's fifth studio album - and played a show on Long Island despite Bonfante's wishes that McLafferty be removed from the act.

What's more - prior to the lawsuit, McLafferty was paid a mere $75 for the show and is now faced with legal bills for the one-off performance, but has since filed a countersuit. more on this story
