The wife of Major League Baseball star Evan Longoria is suing a Long Island strip club for using a sexy photo of her on its social media pages to falsely suggest that she worked at the jiggle joint.
Jaime Edmondson is seeking unspecified monetary damages against Gentlemen’s Quarters in Baldwin for the unauthorized use of two photos, according to the suit filed in federal court which alleges trademark violations and defamation.
The photo allegedly appeared on the club’s Facebook and Instagram pages, depicting Edmondson as a Green Bay Packers cheerleader, wearing a skimpy top pulled up to expose the bottom of her breasts
“This image depicts Edmondson in a sexually suggestive outfit and was intentionally altered to make it appear that Edmondson was either a stripper working at Gentlemen’s Quarters, or that she endorsed the Club,” the suit said.
Edmondson married the Tampa Bay Rays third baseman on New Year’s Eve 2015 and they have two children.
The photo allegedly appeared on the club’s Facebook and Instagram pages.
She was Playboy’s January 2010 Playmate of the Month and a former cheerleader for the Miami Dolphins NFL football team.
Seven other models are co-plaintiffs of Edmondson in the suit against Gentlemen’s Quarters. They also allege photos depicting them in scanty clothing were used without their permission.
Earlier this year, Edmondson filed a similar suit in federal court against a Queens strip club called Sugardaddy’s.
The club’s lawyer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
