Dancer at Riviera Gentlemen’s Club in Queens sues management, says she was stiffed on wages

Mettanie Tapia, a stripper in Queens, is suing former employer Rivera Gentlemen’s Club, saying the strip club cheated her out of wages.


A strip club accused of stiffing dancers out of wages could soon learn a harsh lesson in karma.

A Queens stripper claims in a lawsuit that she was cheated out of cash and forced to cough up a fee to the “house mom” before every shift at an Astoria pleasure palace.

Mettanie Tapia, who performed at Riviera Gentlemen’s Club under the stage name “Karma” in 2012, is trying to recover minimum wages, overtime pay and tips, according to papers filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.
