(NEW YORK MAGAZINE) — Three aspiring models have been named as plantiffs in a lawsuit against Emmanuel New York Models owner Aristeo Tengco, who allegedly groped his models and withheld their paychecks. Nineteen-year-old Hayden Holt initially filed the lawsuit earlier this month, and was joined last week by her model housemates, 17-year-old Kayla Hill and 17-year-old Jessica Lee. All three women say that Tengco recruited them from small towns, put them up in an apartment on the Upper East Side, and helped land them paying modeling jobs — all while preaching his Christian faith.
