Why Heather Rae El Moussa Is Taking Legal Action Against A Strip Club

Heather Rae El Moussa rose to fame with the Netflix reality show "Selling Sunset." The series has already run for five seasons, and two more were ordered in June 2022, according to Deadline. The former model and actor began her career in real estate in 2014, the year she got her license. "I sold my first house within three months of having my license," she told KTLA. In 2015, Heather joined the Oppenheim Group, which went on to be featured in "Selling Sunset."

Heather Rae's fame from "Selling Sunset" led her to meet her future husband, HGTV's "Flip or Flop" star Tarek El Moussa. Heather Rae and Tarek met in 2019, and their relationship has blossomed into a happy marriage. Now, they are expecting a baby through a long IVF journey. Everything seems to be shaping up perfectly for Heather Rae, but legal documents she filed against a strip club would prove otherwise.

Heather Rae El Moussa is suing a strip club for defamation

TMZ reportedly obtained legal documents showing that Heather Rae El Moussa and two other women are suing a strip club for damages and defamation after using their images for promotional materials. Platinum West Gentlemen's Club in South Carolina and Platinum Plus Gentlemen's Club Pennsylvania allegedly used El Moussa's photo in an ad claiming the club would have "Cheerleaders for every fan." In short, El Moussa, Amber Lancaster, and Jaimie Edmondson Longoria want their photos to stop being used by the club and for the club to pay for any damage to their reputations as a result of the poster.

El Moussa is calling the poster defamation for making it appear that she is a stripper at the club. In addition, she didn't provide permission to the club to use her image nor did she receive payment for using her likeness. She has been caught in a similar legal situation before. According to Dayton Daily News, she, Carmen Electra, and Jessica Hinton sued WCI Inc. in 2019 for using their images in over 50 strip clubs across the country.
