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."

get a life ho    

I recall the Miami nightclub that gave her a New Ferrari and a million bucks a few years ago to promote the club and she rarely showed up and blew that off .,.,.,.,.,

She seems to have no issues with taking the money upfront but then seems to balk at the responsibilities that go with the contract .,.,,,

is she breached the contract she should pay up .,

Idiot!    

HA HA! Of course the stupid braindead legspread whore is guilty of everything; she's so stupid that she can't even read a contract. She'll probably blame her lawyers, but it's her responsibility; she took $3.5 million of their money & didn't do a damn thing or meet any of her contractural obligations. I hope they get every single penny of the $35 million; stupid whore needs to get a bloody nose...

A lot of people might think Paris Hilton is unattractive. However, I'm willing to wage the people sitting here commenting on her looks are probably all mousy and overweight.

I highly doubt people who have to comment on someone's looks (especially when this is a legal issue post, not a plastic surgery post) can be all that attractive themselves.

Americans would be a hell of a lot easier to look at if more people looked like Paris Hilton. Most beautiful person alive? probably not. Way hotter than the average fat slob of an American? Hell yes.

How ridiculous is that! My sister works in the industry and people don't like the extensions because they are cheap quality, not because Paris's face is plastered all over them. They should be blaming themselves for the loss..

It matters a hell of a lot, since her actions negatively disrupted others who are trying to actually work and earn a living unlike her dumb ass.

That is ridiculous! This company is suing Paris Hilton for this exorbitant amount of money because she comes from a rich family.

This frivolous lawsuit is a sham designed to take advantage of the fact that this young lady's family is rich!

Her attorneys should turn the table on this company for stopping short of trying to extort money from her because she comes from a rich family!

Its a ploy much like throwing clay dough at the wall and hoping one of them will stick!

In other words, they'll ask for a mountain of money hoping to get a molehill of money!

What they don't get is money isn't everything but to the greedy, they could care less! I GIVE THIS LAWSUIT A THUMBS DOWN!

I get that business is business but this smells like extortion!
