Angelea Preston: I Didn’t Win America’s Next Top Model Because I Was an Escort
The drama on America’s Next Top Model usually stays inside the model house between the ladies, but it turns out one former competitor is setting her sights on suing the show itself for taking her crown away. Why is Angelea Preston claiming producers dethroned her? Read on to get all the details, via TMZ.
Angelea claims she won the All-Star season back in 2011 but that the title was stripped from her clutches after the season wrapped. Apparently Angelea — who also competed on Cycle 14 — confidentially told producers she was a legal escort for about a year and her dirty laundry circulated very quickly throughout the cast and crew.
The fierce model says that after she won, a casting director called her and grilled her about her time as an escort. Even though she clarified that she was not a prostitute and her pay-for-play days were long gone, the casting director was told she’d violated her contract and wouldn’t be the winner anymore.
Since she was done with her escort days, Angelea is fighting back and claiming she didn’t break her contract and that losing caused her career to suffer — not to mention the loss of all the fabulous prizes the winner gets. In total, Angelea is suing producers, networks, and studios for breach of contract and is seeking damages to the tune of $3 million.
