Wilhelmina Named in New Lawsuit filed by Former President

Wilhelmina International, the agency that represents the likes of Coco Rocha, Ava Smith and Sung Hee (pictured above), among others, seems to be embroiled in a bit of drama for the past several months. Sean Patterson was fired from the agency earlier this year following a 20-year career there. After his ousting, the former-president of Wilhelmina in New York, brought suit against the agency in a Manhattan district court claiming breach of contract and defamation. Patterson is suing for $2 million in damages. He claims he was let go after he “failed to facilitate” a date between Wilhelmina CEO Mark Schwarz and Black Eyed Peas singer, Fergie, who the agency represents. I'm guessing that this one will settle pretty quickly as Patterson's complaint is definitely not pretty.
