Joanna Krupa is suing a Florida strip club because they used her photo as an advertisement without permission.
The former The Real Housewives of Miami star and Dancing with the Stars contestant filed a lawsuit against Diamond Dolls in Pompano Beach because they plastered her nearly-nude image on their Instagram page to attract patrons to their happy hour, TMZ reported.
According to the lawsuit, Krupa claims the strip club used her sexy photo to fake customers into thinking she'd be present back in 2013.
Krupa and her attorneys at the Casas Law Firm are suing Diamond Dolls for allegedly damaging her reputation and causing her emotional distress, so she's seeking an unspecified amount in damages.
Krupa competed on the ninth season of Dancing with the Stars with pro partner Derek Hough. Beginning in 2010, she served as the host and lead judge for Poland's Next Top Model. She later joinedThe Real Housewives of Miami in 2012 for its second and third editions.
