Parents of a teenage model are suing Urban Outfitters fin the US after a "salacious" image of their daughter was sold on T-shirts by the fashion retailer.
Taken by photographer Jason Lee Parry in March 2010, the images show the girl - named this morning in the New York Post as Hailey Clauson - in an erotic pose. The parents claim that altough that were aware that the shoot took place, they did not give permission for the photographs to be used on T-shirts and other apparel.
According to the lawsuit filed, the shoot that required her to pose "in a blatantly salacious manner with her legs spread, without a bra, revealing portions of her breasts". But now Clauson's parents are suing Urban Outfitters and Parry himself for put these images on T-shirts, and selling them in their stores. They are seeking $28 million in damages
All this does beg the question - why didn't the model's parents stop their daughter from doing the shoot in the first place?
