Karmen Pedaru (pictured), Anna Jagodzinska and Ania Cywinska are suing their former agency, Next, for stiffing them out of $750,000 in earnings, in addition to $1 million each in punitive damages.

Models Suing Next for $3.75 Million

The three catwalkers left Next Model Management earlier this year in April. After switching agencies (all three migrated to Ford), they allege that Next refused to pay them their outstanding earnings. Pedaru claims withheld compensation in excess of $400, 000 and Jagodzinska seeks $320,000. Cywinska is slacking on her model game as she says she’s only owed $30,000.
