Justin Timberlake heads into his restaurant, Southern Hospitality, to great fanfare in 2007.

A fired manager at Justin Timberlake’s Southern Hospitality has filed a lurid sexual discrimination suit – claiming the restaurant utterly failed to live up to its name.

It’s the second time in six months the singer’s upper East Side barbecue joint has been sued by a former employee.

McDaniel, 29, said her job as general manager became an X-rated nightmare in which she was spit on, pelted with expletives and subjected to porn.
