Last week, Belorussian model Maryna Linchuk severed ties with her model agency of over six years, DNA Model Management, via e-mail. DNA is now suing Ford Models, Linchuk's new agency, for poaching her after DNA developed her career since 2006, securing her an advertising contract with Dolce & Gabbana, and booking covers of the Italian, Russian, German, and Turkish versions of Vogue, among other accomplishments. DNA claims that Ford "continues to contact DNA's business clients and contacts, advising of Linchuk's alleged dissatisfaction with DNA, damaging DNA's business reputation within the modeling community," and seeks at least $12 million in damages.
