Selling Sunset’s Heather Rae Young is suing a strip club for using an image of her to promote NFL viewing parties

Selling Sunset star Heather Rae Young has filed a lawsuit against Platinum West and Platinum Plus Gentlemen’s clubs for using her photo to promote NFL viewing parties.

After the strip clubs, located in South Carolina and Pennsylvania plastered her image on promotional posters, the reality star accused the establishments of ‘defaming her by making it appear she works there as a stripper’ and ‘false advertising.’

In court documents, obtained by TMZ, the 34-year-old realtor, who is expecting her first child with husband Tarek El Moussa, stated she never consented to having her picture used in any of their advertisements.

On the flyer, which read ‘Cheerleaders for Every Fan’ on it, the mother-to-be looked unrecognizable in a ’69’ football jersey, black miniskirt, knee-high stockings and hair in tight curls.

The picture seemed to be taken while she modeled a ‘sexy football girl costume’ that is available on Amazon, while she was in her twenties.

At 23, Young, who works as a luxury real estate agent at the Oppenheim Group, shot to fame posing nude for a Playboy centerfold in February 2010. 

Last November, the Anaheim-born beauty said modeling for the late Hugh Hefner’s magazine ‘catapulted’ her career. 

‘It changed my life, it was the most defining moment in my life,’ she told The Sun. ‘I don’t regret anything I’ve ever done. I’m proud of my life. Everything I’ve done has got me to where I am today.’

Since becoming a stepmom, however, to her husband’s daughter Taylor, 11, and son Brayden, 6, she has found herself wondering how she’ll explain her more risqué photo shoots.

‘I’m still trying to figure out how I’m going to tell the kids I did Playboy,’ she admitted.

Earlier this month, Young and El Moussa announced that they would be welcoming a baby boy into their lives.
