Vampire Weekend Gets Sued For $2 Million+ By Contra Cover Girl

The girl on the cover of Vampire Weekend's Contra record, model Kirsten Kennis, is suing the band for over $2 million, saying she never gave anyone her consent to use the photo.

According to TMZ:

The model is Kirsten Kennis -- who claims she took the original photo way back in 1983 -- and had no idea it was being featured on the album "Contra" ... until after the band began to promote it back in November.

In a lawsuit, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, Kennis claims she thinks it all has to do with a "photographic release" that the band obtained from a photographer named Tod Brody.

Problem is, Kennis claims the signature on the release is a forgery. Kennis blames the band for not verifying the legitimacy of the release -- and is suing VW and the photog for more than $2 mil.

I wonder if this girl will follow suit?
