Paris Hilton's Tangled Weave Could Cost Her $70 Mil

12/29/2010 11:05 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Here's the good news -- Paris Hilton is way more marketable than first thought.  The bad news ... it could cost her $70 million dollars.

1229-paris-hilton-ex-getty-extensions
Hairtech International has amended its lawsuit against Paris, claiming she's cost them $70 mil in profits by reneging on her deal to promote and wear its hair extensions.

Hairtech -- which originally sued for $35 mil back in August -- claims Paris pocketed $3.5 mil from the company to endorse the extensions, but screwed them by wearing competing extensions.

Hairtech also claims ... when Paris went to Jail in 2007, she breached the deal by breaking the law.

Back when the suit was filed, Paris' lawyer called the action meritless, so now we're guessing he thinks it's twice as meritless.

It might be reaching but if the company can prove that their competitors - the same ones Paris was using/endorsing - made that much money from a nearly identical product then they might be able to collect that much. Of course, some of that is probably "breach of contract" fees as well. I don't know if they're telling the truth or not but if they are, Paris needs to pay up.

This looks like a very old photo.

It seems this another nuiscance lawsuit, brought by owners who apparently lived beyond their means, in hopes of getting a settlement.

Maybe if she'd worn the hair extensions in a sex video they would've sold? They can't blame Paris for marketing their product wrongly. :D Silly lawsuit.

Forget Paris Hilton, The Inquirer has the Big Story and has scooped TMZ and Harvey Levin. It has all the details on Oprah's longtime relationship with her friend/lover Gayle. Comes right out and calls them Lesbians.

Yes, as I recall Paris worked very hard to promote those extensions. A lot of my friends bought them because of Paris.

They knew that Paris parties when they signed her up.

If the owner's business went belly-up they have no one to blame but themselves and the economy.
I hope Paris wins.
