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.

All these celebrity/ fashion wannabes need to leave the clothing and jewelry designing to the real fashion experts.

Critical posts here. Nikki is an attractive girl. So her fashion line failed. I'd still like to get filthy with her.

This is what happens to the spawn of the idle rich, who don't think that they need the education required of most peopled to run a business, launch a clothing line, design handbags. Paris and Nicky's parents did a terrible job. They raised two uneducated idiots, who thought they could run the world, without working for it, because of their last name!

I don't know why Nicky Hilton has to pay for what her sister Paris Hilton has done. She doesn't have two pathetic reality shows like her sister did, and she has never been in jail. She does not live in fantasy land like Paris I hope she can have her justice!!!

Is Nicky Hilton a high school drop out like her sister Paris? Why didn't Nicky go to college and take some business classes? her family had the money for the tuition, that's for sure. It seems like Nicky always fails with her business ventures. I don't think Nicky or Paris really know how to do anything but get dressed up and go to events, other than that these sisters are pretty useless.
