Tyra Banks accused of beating-up young girl. Faces lawsuit.

An 18-page lawsuit has been filed against 'America's Got Talent', claiming that Tyra Banks - who's one of the show's judges, physically assaulted a young girl during the filming of the show.

The former judge of 'America's Top Model' was dragged into the lawsuit based on an incident that occurred on the 19th of March, during a couple's audition on the show.

The couple chose to perform a song they had penned themselves about their daughter's birth but things got ugly when the judges started laughing at the performance and it received poor remarks.

The suit claims, “an individual acting as an agent of Defendants (AGT), physically manipulated and verbally abused Mary. Banks shook Mary’s shoulder, pulled Mary’s hair back and physically manipulated Mary. … Mary did not stop Banks’ conduct because Mary was fearful. Banks also insinuated that Mary was accidentally conceived, made fun of the performance and ridiculed [the song] in front of Mary, all in front of active cameras that were filming Mary."

The couple now seeks justice through a jury trial.
