Toddlers & Tiaras Lawsuit
January 31, 2012 by staff
Toddlers & Tiaras Lawsuit, There’s yet another scandal involving TLC’s Toddlers & Tiaras. And this time, it’s a pageant mom on the offensive.
Parents on the reality show about child beauty pageants have often been accused of sexualizing their kids (one tot was dressed like a prostitute). But one mom blames the media, and she has sued several outlets, including TMZ and the Huffington Post, for $30 million, E! Online reports.
Susanna Barrett has filed a $30 million libel suit against the parent companies of TMZ, the Huffington Post, London’s Daily Mail for their allegedly “brazen attempts to sexualize” her 5-year-old daughter.
Barrett points to a TMZ video showing little Isabella singing LMFAO’s Sexy and I Know It in a restaurant. The New York lawsuit says the video and reports that “blew the entire performance out of proportion” aim to turn her daughter into a sex object and are putting the child in danger.
Isabella Barrett did not act or portray herself sexually, ertcally or provocatively; she was not ‘gyrating’ at a ‘nightclub’ or singing ‘about her sex appeal,’ ” Barrett’s complaint states. “She did not understand the concept of sex, let alone ‘sex appeal’ and could not have been singing about her own sex appeal.”
