Maryna Linchuk, Ford Models Target of Lawsuit by DNA Model Management

>> In a lawsuit filed Wednesday, DNA is suing Maryna Linchuk for breach of contract and Ford Models for allegedly luring her away. According to papers filed, Linchuk signed an exclusive management agreement with DNA in 2006 and then signed on for another two years in 2008. But, on April 15, 2011, she sent an email to DNA saying she was thinking of leaving the agency, and a Ford rep followed up soon after with a request that all of Linchuk's bookings and options be passed on to him. DNA seeks at least $2 million in damages as restitution for the "significant sums of money [advanced] to Linchuk and on her behalf." The suit continues: "From February 2006 to the present, DNA has invested heavily in promoting, marketing and managing Linchuk's career and professional image, preparing her for and helping her choose modeling assignments, shoots, etc. As a direct result of DNA's efforts, Linchuk has become a successful and sought after model."
