Paris Hilton Sued for $35 Million over Hair Extensions

8/11/2010 8:40 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton is being sued by a hair extension company which claims the heiress signed a multi-million dollar contract to use and promote their fake locks ... and then totally blew them off -- causing $35,000,000 in damages.

Paris Hilton Hair Extensions

According to a lawsuit, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Hilton got just over $3.5 million since agreeing to become the spokesperson for Hairtech International's Dream Catchers hair extension line  back in 2007.

But according to the docs, Paris didn't satisfy her end of the bargain -- when Hairtech claims she was "seen in magazines and on television not wearing [their] hair extensions and was in fact wearing competitors' hair extension products."

Hairtech also claims she screwed them over when she went to jail in June 2007 -- because there was "an implied" term in her contract that she would "obey the law."

In fact, Hairtech claims Paris served her time when she was supposed to be at a very important "launch party" for the hair extensions.

In the suit, Hairtech claims that "more than 600 hair extension professionals" were scheduled to attend at the party -- but because Paris couldn't make it, they lost opportunities which should have resulted in $6.6 million in revenue.

Now, Hairtech is accusing Paris of fraud and deceit -- and claims they ultimately lost $35 million because of her actions.

An attorney for Hilton tells TMZ: "There is no merit whatsoever to any of these claims. We will pursue all of our defenses vigorously and any potential counter claims."

Oh I so want this to be true just so she'll be 35 million poorer! Useless trash like her doesn't deserve all the money she was born with.

Sounds like they are part of a long list of those "used" by Hilton. Having her as a rep would probably do more harm than good. The people I know would not buy anything she endorsed. Her word is no good...like building the home to help women in jail "transition" to the outside world she spoke of when she got out of jail...NEVER happened and never will. No wonder she can't keep a man since she will love only one person and that is herself.

Her ego is as big as her feet! I think she wears a size 12 or 13.

When I was deciding to offer hair extensions at my salon, I looked at the Dreamcatcher line, and decided against them specifically because of Paris' image.

35 Million is nothing to her family. This gets settled out of court real fast and we'll hear nothing more about it.

But yeah, why in the hell is she famous? I could go to any mall and if you give me an hour find a girl, get her a professional makeover and she'd instantly look 10X better than Hilton on her best day. If her last name wasn't Hilton, she'd be a waitress at Waffle House, which she may be underqualified for.

The extensions were probably made out of corn husk hairs.

Her father is also named in the suit, I never knew he was a crossdresser! He would look really dumb with long blond girl hair clipped to his scalp.

Go to their webpage, it is full of pictures of Paris. How can you sue someone for not supporting the product but still have her pictures all over your web page.

The filers of bull**** lawsuits need to be fined heavily for any malicious suit for gain..this also includes when fake/false criminal charges with no merit occur..if there is a deterent it will free up the courts to handle real matters.

She's rich and can buy anyone and anything. That's all she cares about. The negative comments won't hurt her because she has money.
