You'll Never Guess What Paris Hilton Is Being Sued For

Hiltonp_lit_20070514 It's extremely hard to believe that anybody could ever accuse Paris Hilton of shying away from publicity. Well, stop the presses because Hilton is being sued for more than $75,000 because she allegedly failed to provide "reasonable promotion and publicity services" for the film, "National Lampoon's Pledge This!"

The plaintiff is a court-appointed receiver assigned to collect debts from the 2006 stinker. The lawsuit, filed in Florida district court, blames lost revenue and profits from the film as attributable to Paris Hilton Entertainment Inc.'s (yes, she's incorporated) contractual breach to reasonably promote the film that she starred in.

Never mind that the film's best review called it a  "steaming pile of excrement."
