Ohio-based model Nicole Forni is furious that she’s become the face of international porn sites.

Nicole Forni, a model from Cleveland, Ohio, filed a lawsuit against photographer Joshua Resnick on Monday. She’s suing him for at least a half a million dollars for breach of contract, fraudulent inducement, and fraud.

According to the lawsuit, Resnick shot photos of Forni for a “Trade for Portfolio” agreement, meaning Forni and Resnick didn’t accept compensation, instead adding the photos to each other’s portfolio.

Forni alleges that Resnick agreed to a deal stating that none of the photos he took of her would be used in a "adult-oriented, pornographic, or obscene manner." The model’s pictures, however, have since ended up on various pornographic websites and even the cover of an erotic e-book in Dubai.

Forni is currently still working as a model and runs a clothing boutique in the Cleveland area.

Forni's photo was used on a Swiss prostitution site; an earlier version of this article referred to superescort.ch as a Swedish website.
