Debrahlee Lorenzana Too Hot? Citibank Banker Claims She Was Fired Because She's Too Good Looking (VIDEO)

Is Debrahlee Lorenzana too hot to handle... money?

The 33-year-old beauty claims her bosses at Citibank axed her for her natural assets which were reportedly "too distracting" for her male colleagues.

Lorenzana, a single mother, says she was told "she must refrain from wearing certain items of clothing, in particular, turtleneck tops, pencil skirts, fitted business suits, or other properly tailored clothing" because the form-fitting fashion drew too much attention around the office.

Lorenzana told the Daily News, "I can't help it that I have curves. And I'm not going to go eat and gain 50 or 100 pounds because my job wants me to be the same size as everyone else."

Writes the New York Post:

The sexy single mom pointed out to her bosses "that other female colleagues wore similar professional attire," and that some dressed far more provocatively, the filing says.

But her supervisors shot back that those women didn't have to worry about turning them on "as their general unattractiveness rendered moot their sartorial choices, unlike plaintiff," the papers say.

Citibank released a statement deeming the lawsuit as being "without merit."

Lorenzana now works for another financial institution.
