(AP) Figure skater Oksana Baiul (by-YOOL') is suing NBC Universal and a television skating program producer.


The 1994 Olympic gold medalist says Disson Skating LLC offered Baiul a deal to perform in two shows that were to air on NBC. The Manhattan lawsuit says Baiul declined, never receiving a contract or signing a promotional deal.


Nevertheless, she says her name and likeness were used to advertise the show on two radio websites. She says she also was named in a press release for the show, which included music performed by Kenny G.


The skater says her reputation was damaged because the incorrect publicity resulted in her being labeled a no show, making it harder to get work. She's seeking $5 million in damages.


NBC and the producer declined to comment.
