NY busboy sues Timberlake restaurant over pay

A busboy is suing Justin Timberlake, saying the pop star's Manhattan barbecue joint didn't pay him a legal wage. Felipe Ramales says in a federal lawsuit filed Friday that he worked for Timberlake's Southern Comfort restaurant for about a year.

The suit says Ramales and other staffers didn't get their proper share of a gratuity charge the restaurant automatically collected from parties with six or more diners.

The busboy also says he worked more than 40 hours per week without getting overtime.

A manager at the restaurant says the tip allegations are false, and all staffers made well above the legal minimum wage.

Publicists for Timberlake did not immediately respond to messages left Friday night.
