Los Angeles - A former America's Next Top Model contestant is suing Tyra Banks for $3 million, saying she was improperly denied a top prize because she used to be an escort.

City News Service says Angelea Preston filed the breach-of-contract suit Wednesday in Los Angeles Superior Court.

It names Banks, who is the show's executive producer, and The CW network.
