Debrahlee Lorenzana, Citigroup's Too Sexy Banker: I've Been Harassed My Entire Life (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Debrahlee Lorenzana hasn't stopped making the media rounds in the wake of her highly-publicized lawsuit against Citigroup in which she claims she was fired for being too good-looking.

(UPDATE: Scroll down for a statement from Citigroup.)

The New York Post reported this morning that Lorenzana was told by her current employer, JPMorgan Chase, that she may be fired her for her very public campaign against Citigroup.

In an appearance Monday morning on NBC's "The Today Show," Lorenzana told a brief version of her story, which was initially reported at -- at length -- by theVillage Voice. Lorenzana claims that a New York City branch of Citibank fired her because her figure and wardrobe were "too distracting" to her coworkers.

In the "Today Show" interview, Lorenzana appeared next to her attorney Jack Turner, who said that Citigroup "fired her the day she complained the second time. It was obviously a response to her protected civil rights complaints."

Lorenzana told the "Today Show" that she only filed suit against Citigroup after a lifetime of mistreatment for her appearance. "What I'm trying to make is a point that enough is enough," Lorenzana said. "I've been through my entire life going through [this] harassment."

"There's a point where you say I don't want to go through this any more," she added. "So, now I'm trying something different."

(In an emailed statement a Citigroup spokesperson said: "Ms. Lorenzana has chosen to make numerous unfounded accusations and inaccurate statements against Citibank and several of our employees. While we will not discuss the details of her case, we can say that her termination was solely performance-based and not at all related to her appearance or attire. We are confident that when all of the facts and documentation are presented, the claim will be dismissed.")
