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

Their first mistake was expecting her to be an honest person.

I was scared I thought they found that before she had grey hairs. LOL

I think the REAL question is: Does anyone still *care* about Paris Hilton?

I don’t get the whole extensions thing. Can’t people grow their own hair, I do

Interesting…so she does even pay to have hair extensions. Money makes money. The opposite, she doesn’t pay – BUT gets PAID for it! $3,500,000!!!!!!

That’s enough for me to live off of in my lifetime. I wish I could wear hair extensions and not have to really work…and travel the world!
