Tyra Banks Sued For $3 Million by Mom of Teen "Sex Addict"
Tyra Banks is being sued for $3 million by the mother of a 15-year old girl guest on The Tyra Banks Show, who appeared in an episode about teen sex addicts without the mother’s permission, according to the Associated Press.
In a lawsuit filed Oct. 8 in federal court in Atlanta, Beverly McClendon claims the show contacted the teen on her cell phone after she responded to a request on the show's website seeking "sex addicts." The girl was then picked up from her home in Georgia in a limo and flown to New York, where she was put up in a hotel, all without her mother's knowledge, the lawsuit says.
McClendon filed a missing person report with local police when she realized her daughter was gone. The teen has never been diagnosed as a sex addict, the lawsuit says.
