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.
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.
If I were Next, I would pony up because those Eastern Europeans have no problem busting some knee caps to get their dough. They may look sickly thin, but before they were models who do you think was pulling the tractors and schlepping the yak intestines from town to town?
That’s right, this gal:
