'Heidi Klum' of Foot Models Sues NY Co-Op For $10 Million

It seems like beauty has a beast of a problem with her co-op! A foot model is suing her co-op for mistreatment. Hand and foot model Christina Ambers fell in love with the doorman in her building after being unlucky in love only to have her neighbors try to force her out of the building. Her response? She is suing the co-op for $10 million dollars.

Foot model Christina Ambers actually married that doorman even after he was told by the co-op's super to not date the foot model. Mr. Angel Rotger said that he was fired shortly after it was discovered that he and Ms. Ambers were involved romantically. They are now suing the co-op as a result.

In fact, NY Daily News reports that Christina Ambers' lawsuit against the coop alleges that her husband was socked in the groin by the super's wife. Ms. Ambers told NY Daily News: "He made his way to the hospital and was diagnosed with a contusion. Can you imagine how hard she must have hit him to have caused a contusion?" Well we are guessing it must have been a pretty hard hit to handle. It's not every day a man suffers from a testicular contusion. Perhaps it was over the fact that Mr. Rotger left his wife for the pretty "Heidi Klum" of hand and feet models?

The lawsuit also details how Ms. Ambers needs to hail her own taxis and get her own packages. Ms. Ambers told NY Daily News: "I hope that people can understand how awful it is to come home and to then be treated with hostility in a building where I have paid a lot of money to live. Nobody should have to live this way." Apparently! Hailing your own taxi is one thing, but an alleged groin shot from the super's wife? That's another story.

The lawyer for the couple was quoted by The Gothamist as saying: "You live in this ritzy Upper East Side apartment and now Angel the porter is Angel your next-door neighbor -- I guess it makes some people feel uncomfortable." I guess this is rags to riches story that just makes other residents in this building irritated.

In fact, The Gothamist details how residents in the building are annoyed by Ms. Amber's tendency to wear skimpy outfits and say she is "the biggest problem in the building."

It seems like the residents are proving Ms. Amber's point!
