Tyra Banks has filed a $10 million lawsuit against several wig manufacturers over claims they used her name and image to sell hairpieces.

The supermodel-turned-TV titan, who is famous for her use of weaves and wigs, has filed suit against 10 separate companies who have allegedly used her trademark.

According to TMZ.com, which has obtained the suit, Banks claims her image and name is used to advertise the companies’ products.

The “America’s Next Top Model” star is seeking an injunction to prevent the sale of the items, and wants $10 million in damages.
