NEW YORK (3LW Fans Website) - Naturi Naughton, a former member of 3LW, is suing the group.
She claims she was kicked out of the trio for being "not ghetto enough."
According to Naughton, the group's manager said she "did not present the proper 'project girl image'" and mocked her as "Ms. Two Parent Household."
There's been no comment on the lawsuit from 3LW's management.
The lawsuit which was filed on Friday of last week in Newark, seeks an order 'terminating Naughton's contract with Nine Lives and Sony and compensation for loss of income from the conduct of the defendants.'
"A Girl Can Mack," a new album from the group, is due out on October 22.
In August 2002, 3LW's Adrienne Bailon and Kiely Williams told BET that they were continuing as a duo and would not replace Naturi. They also said that they would still sing under the name 3LW, not 2LW.
