Tyra Banks is sued

In October, news broke that Tyra Banks was being sued by the mother of a self-professed teen sex addict for not getting the appropriate parental clearance for the child's appearance. "The Tyra Show" in question aired in 2009, and according to the $3-million suit, producers didn't get parental permission before they flew her out to New York, put her up in a hotel, and paid her for the segment. Jewel, the child in question, was 15 when she did the show and confessed to losing her virginity at 9, getting pregnant three times and having sex with much older men starting at age 13.
