Models launch a class action lawsuit against underpaying agencies

It has been reported by the New York post that a class action lawsuit has been brought against several major modelling agencies, who have been accused of wrongfully withholding money from models.

The article claims:

Top-notch agencies such as Wilhelmina, Ford and Elite Models Management gave inaccurate financial statements, concealed funds received on their clients’ behalf, and used models’ money for other expenses, the court papers say.

The models lost a collective $20 million to the agencies’ shoddy accounting practices, the suit alleges.

It is said that model Louisa Raske is leading the charge.
