Tyra Banks is being sued by a former America's Top Model contestant who claims she was wrongly denied the show's grand prize because she previously worked as an escort.
According to docs obtained by E! News, Angelea Preston filed a breach of contract suit on Wednesday in the Los Angeles Superior Court, asking for at least $3 million in damages for intentional and negligent infliction of emotional distress.
In addition to Tyra, who serves as the executive producer of the show, the suit also names the CW Network as a defendant.
The lawsuit alleges that Preston won the reality competition and was named America's Next Top Model during cycle 17 of the show in 2011, and is therefore entitled to the grand prize, which includes a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics as well as a spread in high-fashion mag Vogue Italia.
