Like many other celebs who’ve dipped their toes into the restaurant biz, Justin Timberlake may end up regretting he ever opened his NYC eatery, Southern Hospitality. The BBQ joint in Manhattan is now the target of a lawsuit filed Friday on behalf of 50 former employees.

According to the suit, the "SexyBack" singer and his partners in Southern Hospitality were less than hospitable to their employees, who claim that they were cheated out of tips, paid below minimum wage, and not paid for overtime work.

This news comes on the heels of the news that Justin is buying a $5.25 million, 3-bedroom loft in downtown Manhattan. "This is the greatest city in the world!" he told reporters at Thursday night’s Keep a Child Alive event. "It’s the realest city in America."

No comment yet from the Timberlake camp on how he feels about being sued in New York.
