Former ANTM Contestant Angelea Preston Sues Tyra Banks for $3 Million

America's Next Top Model is under fire after legal documents filed by former contestant Angelea Preston allege that the show and its host, Tyra Banks, wrongfully disqualified Preston because of her escort past.

The lawsuit, filed in Los Angeles Superior Court on Wednesday, claims that Preston originally won the reality show's cycle 17 and was entitled to a $100,000 contract with CoverGirl and a spread in Vogue Italia, but once it was discovered she had worked as an escort, Preston was disqualified. Lisa D'Amato was ultimately named the winner.

When Chantelle Brown-Young was 4 years old, a mysterious white patch appeared on her stomach. Diagnosed with the skin disorder vitiligo, Brown-Young watched as similar spots spread all over her body over the next few years, including on her hands, knees and face.

"The bullying started when I went to school," Brown-Young, 20, tells PEOPLE. "It was tough. I definitely had problems with self-esteem."

Although the cause of vitiligo is unknown, the disorder is believed to destroy cells that produce skin pigment, according to the National Institutes of Health. It causes white patches, which are more noticeable on naturally dark skin. In Brown-Young's case, these patches are nearly symmetrical.

Happy birthday, Naomi Campbell!

As the British stunner turns 44 Thursday, it's important to remember that models are people, too.
