Mom’s ‘sex addict’ suit seeks $3M from Banks

ATLANTA » A Georgia woman is suing Tyra Banks for $3 million after she said her 15-year-old daughter appeared without her permission on an episode of Banks’ talk show about teen sex addicts.

Beverly McClendon claims the teen responded to a request on the show’s website seeking "sex addicts," although she has never been diagnosed as one. The girl was then flown to New York without her mother’s knowledge, the lawsuit says.

McClendon filed a missing-person report with police when she realized her daughter was gone.

The lawsuit, filed Oct. 8, asks for $3 million in damages.

Scott Rowe, spokesman for Warner Bros. Television Group, which is named as a defendant, said yesterday that the company had no comment. Banks’ publicist, agent and lawyer did not immediately return calls seeking comment.
