Paris Hilton Fires Back in Hair Lawsuit

11/24/2010 5:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paris Hilton filed a bristling countersuit against a company that claims she signed a multi-million dollar contract to promote a hair-extension product and then blew the company off.

Paris Hilton Hair Lawsuit

In her countersuit, obtained by TMZ, Paris says she was "professional and honorable" promoting Hairtech International.  Indeed, she notes in her docs that the head honcho wrote her an email after a shoot, saying, "Hey Paris. I know it was a long day, but baby you 'Rocked.'  Just from the takes I saw this is going to be one hellava commercial, you were genuinely amazing."

In it's lawsuit, Hairtech claims Paris was a hair heretic, showing up for interviews wearing competitive products.  The company also says by going to jail in 2007, Paris breached an implied term to obey the law.

Paris -- who was sued by the company for $35 million -- is asking for $3 million plus punitive damages in her countersuit.

When I was in college our English professor spent one entire hour going over the difference between "its" (possessive) and "it's" (contraction of "it is"). He said on the first midterm, out of the potential 100 points he would deduct 25 if we missed any questions on "its" versus "it's." His argument was that this was grade-school grammar; if we couldn't tell the difference between "its" and "it's" we should get out immediately, we did not belong in college.

Clearly TMZ did not take this class.

The products Paris endorses or those that are part of her brand sell worldwide at the rate of about half a billion dollars per year so someone must like them!

Your right about her and Diana, Diana was like watching paint dry and Paris is like a train wreck in slow motion. Still if I had to choose it would be Paris.

If your going to badmouth her at least be right! Her perfume wins awards and her hair extensions are a quality product that look good.

I've used Hairtech products on my pubic hair for years, and it always looks great.

Let me know if you want photo proof.

Nobody really cares about this. What I will say is that this company cannot sue (successfully) Paris for going to jail because doing so broke an "implied" clause within the contract. That is utterly ridiculous. I don't believe any sponsor can get away with sueing someone for going to jail because they believe the association somehow tarnishes their brand. That is a claim that will never hold up in court. It's a patently dumb argument to make.
