Civil suit filed against Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club and former president

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) - A four page document filed in Orleans Civil Court Wednesday is the latest development in an ongoing sexual harassment case against former Zulu King Naaman Stewart.

In the amended suit, former Zulu employee Gemell Hulbert alleges other Zulu members were complicit in attempts to intimidate her into not talking about a 2015 bathroom incident where she says Stewart refused to let her leave until she showed her breasts and had sex with him.

The court filing names Zulu member Danatus King as a defendant. Specifically taking aim at his comments in the media.

It says, "Mr. King's comments were reckless, insensitive and part of a continuing conspiracy to intentionally portray false information by Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club, Inc. and to conceal the truth."

It goes on to say attorney Kenya Rounds, a registered agent for the social club patronized Hulbert's workplace, "approached plaintiff in attempt to  intimidate her to refrain from contacting the police."

The suit alleges that as recent as May, "several members of Zulu Social Aid and Pleasure Club frequently visited her at her job and harassed her by wearing t-shirts and paraphernalia reading Naaman Stewart for President."

The woman claims that another Zulu member offered her $10,000 and then $15,000 on behalf of Stewart to, "refrain from reporting his conduct against her to the police department."

FOX 8 reached out to the organization and Zulu spokesman Clarence Becknell who did not want to comment on the pending litigation, which he says he learned about in the media.

We also attempted to reach out to Kenya Rounds and Danatus King but were unable to receive a comment.
