Paris Hilton Countersuing Hair Extension Company For $3 Million

November 25, 2010 Paris Hilton

Paris Hilton is fighting back in the $35 million lawsuit filed against her by a hair extension company by suing them, too. The hotel heiress claims Hairtech International is exploiting her celebrity status with their "born of pure fiction" story.

Back in August, Hairtech filed a complaint against Paris for allegedly wearing a competitor's hair extensions when she bound by contract with them. The company also claims that she breached her contract by skipping promotional appearances, though she had a good excuse: she had been in jail.

Paris is now lashing back, filing a suit on her own. She alleges that contrary to Hairtech's claims, she was "professional and honorable" in promoting the product.

She said that plaintiff Chris Volek even called her in various emails "truly amazing," "sensational" and "freaking Stunning [sic]," according to the cross-complaint papers obtained by eonline.com.

She included a letter from a colleague, that states Volek and others at Hairtech have "left a trail of complaints and defrauded victims in their wake."

She claims that the company "sought to capitalize on Ms. Hilton's brand and fame by offering to pay substantial 'guaranteed' royalties in exchange for the right to associate Ms. Hilton's brand with their line of hair products."

Paris also said that Hairtech failed to pay "in excess of $1.7 million" by committing "fraud by secretly altering documents presented to Ms. Hilton's company for signature."

She is seeking $3 million for breach of contract, misappropriation of name and likeness, fraud, and accounting.
