Alexia Palmer

A Jamaican model is suing Donald Trump's modeling agency for breach of contract after the agency flew her to the U.S. with promises of a glamorous lifestyle and $75K a year salary.

Alexia Palmer was only 17 when Trump Model Management LLC brought her to the U.S. from Jamaica on a H-1B work-visa application in 2011.

In court documents, Palmer accused Trump's agency of lying on the application, saying she would be paid a $75,000-a-year salary while working for the agency.

But Palmer says she only received $3,880.75 over 3 years.

In her lawsuit, Palmer, who is now 22, alleges she received just $3,880.75 in wages over the three years she was under contract with Trump's agency.

Palmer's lawsuit, which was filed in 2014, alleges "fraudulent misrepresentation" and violations of U.S. immigration and labor laws.

She is asking for $225,000 in back pay. The lawsuit accuses Trump Management LLC of taking 80% of her wages by deducting expenses such as phone bills, postage, food, housing, and limousine costs.

But Trump's attorney, Lawrence Rosen, called the lawsuit "frivolous" and "without merit," saying, "At the end of the day, this model just didn't have a successful career, and we fully expect to win."

Rosen noted that Palmer signed the contract agreeing to reimburse Trump Model Management LLC "for any and all costs and expenses" incurred by the agency relating to her modeling.

Trump is not named in the lawsuit.

Interest in the long dormant lawsuit was renewed by NY's liberal anti-Trump media now that Trump is the GOP front runner.

Palmer's attorneys are seeking other models who may have been brought to the U.S. by Trump's agency then stiffed on their wages.

A judge will determine whether to proceed with the class action lawsuit by the end of March.

    I hope she got that figure she is saying they told her in writing. I kind of believe it because no one is coming here to just make 3,000 for three years.

    $3,880.75 over 3 years
    ^^^^Can a person be this stoopid....she is a beautiful woman, but honey get some brains, after the first month, it's time to go back to the round table and see what the #hellsgoingsonss........then again he is running for president, so this could all be lies...

    The irony that a man who is against immigration will bring in a foreigner for cheap labor and probably other favors. Why not hire a white girl and see if she will accept that paltry salary? You cannot deduct from the money on the labor application that was used to obtain H1 visa, you evil ugly man! That's illegal. Sue Trump, arrest Hillary. Why do they get 3,4 ,5 chances when others can't even get 1?

    Side note: She looks great, they probably didn't invest enough in her once they had their "one black girl"

    They will settle, they always settle!
    She gonna get about 150K. He don't want that drama ...

    Speaking of Trump...I just saw a video of some THUG assaulting a peaceful protestor at Trumps latest knights gathering. In typical Amerikkkan form, more thugs, legalized thugs with guns and badges handcuff the victim violently while assaulting him even more. What the hell is going on @Sandra? The candidate you've thrown your support behind, and his followers...Are seeming more and more like Hitler, and his followers daily? I fear for my life and the young lives in my family. What would a Black Trump supporter like yourself recommend that a sane, pro Black, non submissive person like myself do to avoid the wrath of this impending resurgence of White supremacy?

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    you would be surprised at what H1 workers tolerate to stay in the country. it's hard to walk away from the job because you have 30 days after you quit an H1 job to either find a new job or leave the country. for a lot of people that have moved their lives here, its not easy to pack up and go home with nothing.

    employers know this, so they be trying it.

  • AnonymousRose

    Yea I understand that, but self worth is key , don't get pimped like that come on nah...they always taking advantage of us, and we fall for they bullchyt , hook line and sinker, Stand up Black people

    H1 is not a black people thing. I know indians that haven't seen one check in months and they won't dare report their employer. it's a third world country thing. I think indians even have it worse.

    the struggle is real.

  • Tammie Reed

    I saw this on Good Morning America this morning crazy! There is a documentary on Netflix that shows how models come here to work and are treated like a piece of meat and work long hours and share a very small apt, it was good to see and aspiring models should watch it! You may have second thoughts too. Its called, "Girl Model".

  • http://www.facebook.com/lisa.daniels.7311 Lisa Daniels

    That birds nest loves drama. He ain't settling ish.

  • THE OLDER SISTAH

    I might add she was seventeen years old when she came here with the promise of becoming a fashion model. This was probably her dream and they (Trump Modeling Agency) played on it.

  • AnonymousRose

    I have a friend from india and he is on one of those visa, he been out of work for 6 months and still here... so i get it

  • http://citygirlzen.blogspot.com/ missarewa

    I'm happy to hear that.

    I'm on an H1 visa currently and let me tell u, I have seen things in this country. Up to my former supervisor telling me not to put sh*t toilet paper in the garbage can because some foreigners don't know that.

    I believe her. She's telling the truth.

  • Yoni

    I saw a video of a blk lady being surrounded by them. Then she said to one lady, "YOU walked over to me." The lady shet de fuk up. Then an old YT man, of course, was like "You shut your mouth!".....as if he had been DYING to say it freely and publically. She was like "NO! MY mouth is going to KEEP running." I'm thinking WHO THE HELL are they to THINK they can tell somebody to SHUT UP!

    O'an I seen somewhere else that all the candidates are sick. Coughing in their hands and shit, right? Well NOW they are :fistbump: . But didn't somehow when Uncle Barack and Auntie Chell did it, it was viewed as an act of terrorism? Oh how soon we forget.

    I am SO SICK of these folks!

  • Put some Respeck on B.Sweet

    Trump is an actual contender for the White House. :sad: I really hope that this is an elaborate April Fools Day joke. What in the twilight zone hell?

  • Jusstlookn

    Say this again, it has nothing to with being poor. It's has something with knowing what's yours and he is a liar, cheat and racist.

  • Yoni

    I was piggybacking on Finding Forever's comment about how ppl have their money down to the very last cent.

    Off topic - Watched Underground with a group of ladies, we had mixed feelings but ask I said it's black folks working.

    Kayne actually is doing the soundtrack for serios. #Great Job Kayne, loved it. Somehow the soundtrack has a powerful meaning to those scenes. Like it's about to pop off. POWERFUL

    “Underground” follows a group of slaves who plan a daring escape from a Georgia plantation to cross 600 miles to freedom, aided along the way by a secret abolitionist couple running a station on the Underground Railroad, as they evade those tasked with bringing them back, dead or alive.

    GREAT JOB MR. WEST

  • CrazySexyKool

    Right, I have an intern that came here on a visa to work.. His job made budget cuts 6months before he and his family were to be permanent US Citizens. He had to pay $10,000 per family to a lawyer to fight for him to stay. And the worst part of it is the University that brought him here can't find their paperwork for being in the US. They have been here 20years or more.

  • Finding Forever…

    Could be the same Black lady protester @ one of his speaking ralley, but they SHOVED, PUSHED & YELLED at her sooooo BADLY...One DUMBASS was pushing from the sideline & has since cost him the opportunity to serve the Country...JUST WHATCHA GET, SUCKER!

    God, I hope not

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    AS I have noted numerous times on this blog and on Twitta, I am not an American citizen. Therefore, I don't throw my support any of your corrupt politicians. One thing I do look forward to if Trump is elected is no more transgender laws.

  • felinelurker

    He is bringing out the worst in everyone

  • Jusstlookn

    Yes, My sister. Nothing new today, we got better clothes and live next door to them. They are our directors, owners, etc. MOST of them tolerate us.

    Trump tying to make that they don't have to tolerate us at all.

  • felinelurker

    Ok Dub, what about the law about district zoning

  • LibraGirlonly

    I enjoyed it buttttttttttt the women who plays the house mother is not that believable. I am trying to say she has not mastered the slaves dialect. I did enjoy it though and can't wait to watch it again.

  • LibraGirlonly

    I have to say it is showing white folk in a bad light.

  • iWasteTime

    I have family in Underground and don't watch it. I will though, it is hard to see him in that role and it was really hard for him mentally, like you said he working though!

  • Blue

    Precious Lord Jesus, please don't let this man see the inside of the White House. Please.

  • LibraGirlonly

    He won't.

    Sandra, start packing up your belongings. First thing Trump will do is revoke green cards and start shipping us back.

  • Jusstlookn

    Interesting perceptive, I felt that she got it, but wants to be proper. I believe her children are masters CHILDREN

  • Jusstlookn

    Yes, it was interesting and different angle. Watch it and let me know. It coming on the next 3 nights.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    Yup, yup ?

  • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

    I doubt that, hun.

  • Jusstlookn

    Want up vote, but ummm. Did he take it because he liked the role or the work. I'm certain it's hard being put in that position. Having to be in the PERIOD of time. LAWD Jesus. Is filming complete?

  • Low E. {CIRCA 1908}

    DIG...THIS RAIN HAS ME SLEEPY BUT I MAY TRY AND WATCH IT WHILE I'M HERE

  • LibraGirlonly

    Yes, I think they are his children,isn't that just awful?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    I agree! First thing I said when she looked over at him with tears in her eyes when Rosalee was being beat and the wife was talking about selling her 7 year old son

  • LibraGirlonly

    Maybe that's it but what about when the maids served dinner at the daughters party? Did they make hand jestures back then guiding the maids on how to serve dinner?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    yes it really held my attention :) even Ye's crazy azz music worked

  • iWasteTime

    He likes where his role is supposed to and for the work. He had a lil buzz of the movie he was in and his name was being put out there a little more. almost done with season 1, last time I spoke to him

  • Readytochokemothernatureonout

    I hope he doesn't win for it will be a disaster of epic proportions if he does....

  • It’s Taurus Season

    I think it was brung up to confuse and cause undo chaos.

  • Jusstlookn

    Probably, because some of the owners were from Britain, and they really had to learn how to "serve" in a proper manner.

  • Jusstlookn

    Wanted to smash that cold glass of lemonaide in her face

    How how the lady was like this cake is wonderful, did you make it?

  • sunni_daze

    My main income is Mod-ing. lol. Those are typical fees they try to stick you with. The bottom feeders try to make themselves look good while sticking you with the tab. She didnt ask for a limo but they sent it and charged her. When I go to town I splurge on cabs only. Dont hang out unless you live in the location or you can make connects. My housing and everything else is cheap that i pick up myself. Only let them get you started and try not to sign leases. Sometimes you have to sign a house lease the first year but after that run. She let them do everything and they priced gauged her.
    Plus his models look like call girls. She wouldve been better off going with a little corner shop.
    P.s even top models have money from non entertainment coming in. I work real jobs inbetween seasons. Some others are trainers, instructors, shopgirls, beauty consultants. If she wouldve alternated she would have more to show for her time. Although they got over on her.
    There is a difference between a born rich "model" and a regular model. Kendall jenner pays for a lot of her own things. A regular model would never travel like that on her OWN DIME. I guess this girl never mingled with other agency girls. There is a reason you see top girls walking down the street in new york. Its the culture of not getting ripped off.

  • lovelygamour

    He will have the agency file bankruptcy.

  • Renee26

    She didn't read her contract....so many people get those type of expenses taken out of their pay because they don't read the fine print... She was naive

I've never had a Black man point a gun at me, can't say the same for the White man...Legally pointed guns at me...For their safety,,,And mine, imagine that...Never been stopped and frisked by a Black cop either? Not that a Black cop is any less dangerous than their White brethren...Anyway, I'm scared...Have a good one??
