Angelea Preston Sues Tyra Banks For Revoking Her ANTM Win

in Entertainment

You remember her as the jive-talking, sassy Angelea Preston from America’s Next Top Model (ANTM) Cycle 17.

And now, the former supermodel hopeful is suing Tyra Banks for US$3 million, saying she was improperly denied a top prize because she used to be an escort.

City News Service says Angelea  filed the breach-of-contract suit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

The suit names Banks, who is the show’s executive producer, and The CW network.

The lawsuit says Preston won the show’s Cycle 17 in 2011 and was entitled to a package that included a USD100,000 contract with CoverGirl cosmetics and a magazine fashion spread.

Angelea says she was wrongly disqualified because she had worked as an escort before taking part in the show.

Messages to an attorney and a manager for Banks weren’t immediately returned.MYNEWSHUB
