Nicky Hilton Sues for $5 Mil

Ex-Partners Sabotaged

My Clothing Line

EXCLUSIVE

0511_nicky_hilton
Nicky Hilton claims her high-end fashion line was a colossal failure ... and it's all because her partners were irresponsible liars who pissed away the company's cash so they could live like ballers.

Hilton claims it all started in 2006 ... when she inked a deal with Eliyahu Cohen and the Asher Group to launch Nicky Hilton Worldwide -- which would market high-end fashion products under Nicky's name.

Hilton claims the Asher Group promised to provide $4.9 million in financing for the operation AND pay Nicky a guaranteed annual salary of $250k plus a 10% increase every year.

But in a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Nicky claims the Asher Group dropped the ball ... failing to secure the $4.9 million ... never paying her salary ... and squandering what money the company did have on stupid personal expenses.

In fact, Nicky claims Asher blew $9k per month on a personal assistant who "spent most of her time running personal errands for Asher and other tasks unrelated to NHW business."

Hilton claims Asher and Cohen's irresponsible conduct caused her company to crumble -- leaving Nicky to "clean up the mess." Now, she's demanding AT LEAST $5 mil in damages to make things right.

Nicky seems like the most tolerable Richards/Hilton woman but....why does it seem like everything she launches fails? maybe im wrong? what happened to the independent hotel chain she was launching??

More likely her clothing line failed because nobody gives a crap about the Hiltons, especially an unknown one.

$250,000 a year plus a 10% increase? Wow, she was GROSSLY OVERPAID.

She's baaaack    

Hahahaha .... I think it's a total howl that the Hiltons were totally taken over by those monkey Kardashians. Nicki? It ain't gonna happen, so give it up and live with all of your family money in obscurity . That, or maybe you can have some half-celeb piss and ***m on you on tape like Kim did.

She's not relevant, they couldn't get the financing because of her irrelevancy, and she wants them to pay her because she's irrelevant? Really?

I'm glad Nicky's out -


These people didn't deserve her.


They need Nicky - Nicky doesn't need them.

They thought they were getting a free ride -


On The Hilton Express.


The Hilton Girls are way-too-smart.


Why should they make a group rich -


For a miniscule cut - give me a break.

I'm writing the Hilton's next reality show, as well.


It's about dudes that drive their bicycles from Van Nuys?


And to peek in the Hilton's Malibu mansion.


We follow them around jail, as well.


See them chowing down and what-not.

At least she actually works unlike her herpes infested sister who just 'brands' things and spreads her disease around. Wonky eyed racist skank.

The-Hilton's-Next-Reality-Show:


"De-Hiltonized."


-Follows James Rainford, the Paris-phobe.


As a therapist tries to break James of his fixation.


By interesting James in either Nicky or Kathy.


Nicky and Kathy make frequent appearances.


And to flirt with James in or near James' cell.


-Like you wouldn't watch.
