Paris Hilton May Owe Moviemakers $160,000
A judge rules that a breach-of-contract lawsuit against the starlet can go on
Paris Hilton is finally learning a lesson the rest of us learned a long time ago: When it rains, it pours.
The reality-star celebutante, who is currently facing potential jail time over charges of cocaine possession, apparently doesn’t have a fan in Florida U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno.
According to the Toronto Sun, the judge ruled Thursday that Hilton, 29, violated the terms of her contract when she didn’t do interviews with British and Russian media for the 2006 flop Pledge This! – starring one Paris Hilton.
After it was clear the movie was a failure at the box office, the company that invested in the movie, Worldwide Entertainment Group filed a breach-of-contract lawsuit against Hilton, demanding $1 million.
The good news for Paris?
The judge ruled that by missing out on the European promotions, Hilton only cost the movie about $160,000.
