Patti Labelle's entourage has scored a legal victory against a man who alleged he was attacked at an airport in Texas.

Richard King claimed he was attacked at the Bush Intercontinental Airport in 2011 and was forced to drop out of The United States Military Academy at West Point because of his traumatic brain injuries, caused by LaBelle's son and manager Zuri Edwards, bodyguard Efrem Holmes and hairdresser Norma Harris.

The Lady Marmalade hitmaker was also included, but her name was dropped from the suit.

A federal judge absolved the case against the defendants on Tuesday (23Sep14).
