*Former supermodel and businesswoman Tyra Banks is suing several companies for $10 million for using her name on their line of wigs.
Banks filed the complaint against 10 different wig companies for using her “name, photograph, image and identity” as well as trademarks without permission.
TMZ reports that several of the companies are displaying Tyra’s photos and Tyra-inspired wigs on their websites; including the Yaki straight (Tyra-Banks style) wig, the Tyra Banks custom lace wig #046, and the Tyra Banks inspired human hair wig.
Included in the lawsuit is Tyra’s 11-page IMDB profile as proof of just how valuable her trademark is and further the claim of why they need to pay for its use.
Banks’ suit is asking for an injunction to stop the sale of the products bearing any likeness to her name, trademark or image; as well as $10 million in damages.
