Tyra Banks sued: Custodial mom Beverly McClendon sues the bejesus out of Tyra for child sex…

GEORGIA MOTHER SUES TYRA BANKS FOR EXPOSING HER 15 YEAR OLD AS A “SEX ADDICT.”
AP: A fifteen year old teen’s mom is suing Tyra Banks and her affiliates for exposing the teen on national TV as a sex addict. The mom is asking for $3 million in compensatory and punitive damages. The claim is that since the child is a minor and not emancipated, Tyra had a duty to obtain the mother’s permission before she flew the kid to New York (limo to airport) to discuss with the world her “sex addiction” which, according to the mother, is not even true. The teen apparently never even was diagnosed with sex issues and addictions. This filth was a hoax.
You know what, I don’t know the facts of this case, but it could be pretty close to a “strict liability” situationĀ here for Tyra and her company. At a minimum, there will be a massive settlement with this one. But I can’t believe her people didnt’ vet these kids before putting them on a show to discuss this situation. Christ, Tyra, you came pretty close to committing a fricking felony with this. This is probably up there with child pornography prohibitions….I mean, this is not my area of the law, but it sounds bad. It soundsĀ like this is a big problem for Tyra and her peeps.
Tyra, you should have consulted with the custodial parent before you brought that kid on to talk about filth like that.
