Talk about a bad hair day. Paris Hilton was hit with a $35 million lawsuit on Wednesday by a hair-extensions company that claims she breached her contract with them by wearing a competitor’s fake locks. The company, Hairtech International Inc., which manufactured the Dreamcatchers hair extension line that Paris fronted beginning in 2007, is seeking damages of 10 times what Hilton was reportedly paid under the contract. In addition to sporting a rival product in 2008, Hairtech claims Hilton missed a launch party for a new product in 2007 because she was in jail. Hilton, 29, so far hasn’t commented on the suit, but attorneys provided the following statement:”There is no merit whatsoever to any of these claims. We will pursue all of our defenses vigorously and any potential counter claims.”–Tim Nudd
