NEW YORK, June 9 (UPI) -- A New York man has filed a $10 million lawsuit against an NYC singer for allegedly ruining his idea to start Long Island's first Pink cover band with her bad looks and poor singing.

According to Charles Bonfante's lawsuit, Collette McLafferty and the other band members are "subpar" musicians and their lack of talent and sex appeal ruined his idea for the group.

Bonfante's collaborator, Rik Nevone, played a gig with McLafferty under the name Funhouse and Bonfante filed the suit.

"McLafferty was a mediocre vocalist at best ... She had pitch problems, oftentimes singing flat for extended periods of time," the suit claims. "She didn't look the part, or at least contribute to the overall aesthetics of the band."

The singer was paid $75 for the gig and is now the target of a $10 million lawsuit. She has filed a countersuit seeking to have Bonfante's lawsuit tossed out of court.

"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 told the New York Post. "I don't think it's his place to tell anyone that they're not good looking enough to follow their dreams."
