A Babestation model says she is unable to find somewhere to live after a messy court row with her bouncer ex's aunt.
Kayleigh Wanless lost a court case with her ex-boyfriend's aunt Donnis Brown, who claimed the model hadn't repaid a [pounds sterling]3,100 loan despite persistent demands.
A judge sided with Ms Brown and ordered the 29-year-old to pay up -which she now insists she has, reports Chronicle Live.
And now she claims she's "sofa surfing" with friends because no landlord trusts her.
The glamour model claims online trolls branded her a "s" following the case and publicity caused her major headaches .
Now, she's put her side of the story across in a bid to set the record straight.
Miss Wanless said: "I can't get a house due to the newspaper article.
"I'm working in London then sofa surfing with friends when I'm back in Newcastle because nobody will rent to me.
"People think that I'm going to rip them off but I've never done such a thing and I've never even lent any money off people before.
"I've always had good credit, and if I was going to get a loan I'd go to a lender, not someone's family.
"Now I'm struggling to find a house because they are bringing a CCJ County Court Judgement which is just a nightmare."
Miss Wanless told the court the debt was between Donnis and her nephew, bouncer Andrew Flavell, for money borrowed to rent a flat in Tenerife.
However, District Judge Michelle Temple ruled Miss Wanless was liable for the money which had been transferred to her account.
Now, the former Prudhoe Community High School pupil -who told September's hearing the cash was "nothing to do with her" -believes she was singled out due to her work.
The Northumberland-born model has posed for the Daily Sport and co-hosted the 2019 UK Glamour Awards. She also charges fans $20-a-month to see explicit content on an adult website.
She added: "It was because of the work that I do, and I've been called a s and an escort, which isn't true.
"[Models] get put in a bad light quite often because as it is classed as sex work, there is a stigma at goes with it.
"But the girls support each other and we are nice. I've worked in bars, and that is a much nastier industry to be in."
The case made headlines after Miss Wanless tweeted 'I need a solisitor' days before the last hearing.
She now claims that tweet wasn't even for the case, but instead for help looking at legal documents -although she admits: "I'm not the best speller."
