'Black Ink Crew' Star

Sues Producers

They Roofied Me & Made Me Look Like a Slut

011314_black_ink_launch_v3Producers on VH1's "Black Ink Crew" roofied girls on the show to make them look sluttier than they really are -- so says the tattoo shop's hot ex-receptionist ... and now she's filed a lawsuit.

Alexandra Estevez -- aka "Alex" -- filed the suit against Big Fish Entertainment and New Pop Culture Productions over a party episode that was shot in 2012 ("Mixxxy Madness") ... in which Alex appears extremely intoxicated and throws herself at the owner of the tat shop.

Before the encounter, Alex claims someone connected with production handed her a drink that contained a "date rape drug" and it completely messed her up. She claims she barely remembers a thing, including hitting on the owner.

To add insult to injury, Alex insists producers subsequently edited show footage to make her look as slutty as possible. She says she quit the show last June because she felt so violated.

Alex's friend Ericka -- not a cast member -- claims she was also roofied. Together, they're suing for battery and more ... demanding at least $1,000,000. Calls to the producers weren't returned.
