Former Miss America contestant headed to court

A member of the Lumbee Tribe of North Carolina who was ousted from the Miss America pageant is suing her ex-boyfriend for invasion of privacy.

Rebekah Revels was forced to resign her title of Miss North Carolina and was dropped from the national contest after her ex-boyfriend came forward and said he had topless photos of her. Her lawsuit claims Tosh Welch, a member of the Eastern Band of Cherokees, invaded her privacy and interfered with a contract.

Separately, Revels is pursuing lawsuits against the Miss North Carolina Pageant and Miss America organizations.
