West Babylon, N.Y. -

A New York nursing home is at the center of a lawsuit over strippers.

On Tuesday, the family of Bernice Youngblood filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit claiming the 86-year-old suffered severe emotional distress after watching a strip show at the nursing home in 2012.

The nursing home, located in West Babylon, claimed the show was approved and paid for by the residents.

Youngblood said she was "shaking" and "felt terrible" during the show.

The Youngblood family found out about the show last year when they discovered a photo of Bernice stuffing dollar bills into a stripper's shorts.
