New York Daily News – A hedge-fund hottie who sued Vibe and Diddy after the mag published a topless picture of her at the music mogul’s Hamptons blowout has had her case tossed out.
Maria Dominguez, a money manager for a hedge fund, filed the $3 million invasion-of-privacy suit when a shot of her with two other bare-breasted sirens ran in the November 2006 issue of Vibe next to the caption, "Mermaids gone wild."
"When that picture came out, she wasn’t too happy about it, that’s for sure," said her lawyer, Albert Maimon. He would not identify the hedge fund for which Dominguez works.
Justice Doris Ling-Cohan threw out the suit, saying Dominguez couldn’t expect privacy once she doffed her top at Sean (Diddy) Combs’ star-studded 2003 East Hampton White Party.
"Sean Combs and his renowned annual White Party are subjects of tremendous public interest, attracting the steady attention of the public and many news organizations," Ling-Cohan wrote.
