Super model turned talk show host Tyra Banks has landed in a legal soup following allegations that the ‘teen sex addict’ that appeared on her show was a minor who did not have her mother’s permission to be on the show.
The mother of the teen, Beverly McClendon has filed a $3 million worth lawsuit claiming that the show contacted her 15 year old daughter after she filled out a form on their website seeking teenaged sex addicts. The girl was then flown to New York for the shooting without her mother’s knowledge.
The lawsuit which also includes the names of Warner Bros. Entertainment and the exec. producers of the show, alleges that it damaged the teen by exposing her to perverts and pedophiles. It also demands that all future broadcasts of the show be banned.
