Recently we told you about the big law suit former Next models, Anna Aleksandra Cywinska, Anna Maria Jagodzinska and Karmen Pedaru are claiming against the agency for allegedly keeping hold of their earnings. Well, things are getting worse.
Recent documents submitted in the lawsuit have been leaked, revealing how much the models were paid for certain jobs with big magazines. In a document detailing the payments allegedly being withheld from Jagodzinska includes a billing of $250 for a shoot with American Vogue and $125 bill for a shoot with French Vogue. In contrast, the model was supposed to take in $60,000 for a H&M campaign $15,000 for a campaign for J.Crew. As interesting as this is, is it actually telling us something we don't know?
Times aren't looking good for Next at the moment. Despite suingFord for allegedly taking Anna Aleksandra Cywinska, Anna Maria Jagodzinska and Karmen Pedaru from the agency, the same models are reportedly suing Next. According to court documents, the models have decided to take legal proceedings against their former agency for "collecting and converting hundreds of thousands of dollars of their earmarked compensation remitted by third parties for bookings in the United States."
Just in case that wasn't bad enough, the damages they're asking for are sky high. The Cut claims that Pedaru alleges she's owed at least $400,000 and is claiming £1million in punitive damages. Jagodzinska and Cywinska are also seeking $1million in damages but the former is reportedly owed $230,000 and the latter $30,000.
