TYRA BANKS ACCUSED OF HUMILIATING GIRL ON ‘AMERICA’S GOT TALENT’

Tyra Banks is being accused of less than model behavior.

In a new lawsuit, a woman claims the 43-year-old supermodel humiliated her daughter during a taping of the new season of America’s Got Talent, which Tyra is now hosting.

The woman — known only as Jane Doe — says Tyra pulled the hair of her daughter – referred to as Mary Doe – physically manipulated & verbally abused her and even insinuated that she was conceived by mistake. That’s nothing to smize at!

While Jane Doe is suing producers of the show, she specifically calls out Tyra’s behavior.

“An individual acting as an agent of Defendants, physically manipulated and verbally abused Mary. Banks shook Mary’s shoulder, pulled Mary’s hair back and physically manipulated Mary. … Mary did not stop Banks’ conduct because Mary was fearful. Banks also insinuated that Mary was accidentally conceived, made fun of the performance and ridiculed [the song] in front of Mary, all in front of active cameras that were filming Mary. After the performance, Banks asked Mary to describe, in front of active and filming cameras, her opinion about Jane and her husband after they were publicly ridiculed by AGT. … As a result of her negative experience from AGT and Defendants’ abusive treatment, Mary was traumatized and became deeply depressed.”

In addition, Jane Doe asked that none of the performance air so as not to further upset her daughter. But she claims producers have denied that request.

So far there has been no comment from producers of America’s Got Talent or Tyra herself.
