Pop star Miley Cyrus has become embroiled in a lawsuit after her sister's pet dog attacked a model.

A brutal dog attack took place that ruined the career of model Yolande Ngom, the housemate of Miley's older sister Brandi.

The 21-year-old 'Wrecking Ball' star is involved since the apartment in which the attack occurred is owned by her company Smiley Miley Inc, reported TMZ online.

Ngom apparently claims in court documents that Brandi's dog Feather made an unprovoked attack on her, savagely ripping open her right thigh and causing such damage and scarring that she will be unable to take up modelling again.

She is suing both Brandi and Smiley Miley Inc for lost wages, damages and medical bills.

Furthermore, Ngom claims that the dog was being incompetently handled by one of Miley's employees, and had such little control over the animal that they effectively let the attack happen.

The property is apparently one where Miley herself used to live, and where Ngom and Brandi both lived until the incident took place.

Miley's representatives have not made any comment about the alleged incident.
