Paris Hilton sues Las Vegas’ Hard Rock Hotel for failing to pay appearance fees

Reported by

The Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas has failed to pay Paris Hilton $200,000 for two promotional appearances in 2009, a new lawsuit alleges.

The lawsuit was filed Thursday in Clark County District Court in Las Vegas against the Hard Rock, with the named plaintiff being a Los Angeles attorney for Hilton, Paul Joseph Shapiro.

Shapiro says in the lawsuit he has been assigned the rights to Hilton’s $200,000 claim.

The suit alleges that in February 2009, Hilton’s company Paris Hilton Entertainment Inc. and the Hard Rock signed a contract in which Hilton agreed to make three appearances for $100,000 per appearance that year.

Hilton made the three appearances, but was paid only $100,000 the lawsuit alleges.

“Paris Hilton Entertainment sent correspondence to defendant Hard Rock, demanding that it pay the amount owed,” the suit says, adding the Hard Rock has not disputed what is owed but has failed to pay the $200,000.
