Hilton Defends Movie Promotion Over $8.3 Million Lawsuit

PARIS HILTON has defended herself against allegations she owes investors $8.3 million (£5.5 million) for not fully promoting her film NATIONAL LAMPOON'S PLEDGE THIS!.
The hotel heiress entered an agreement in 2004 for the production and distribution of the movie, according to a lawsuit filed in Miami, Florida last year (08) by Worldwide Entertainment Group Inc.
Movie bosses claim Hilton was paid $1 million (£666,670) for her acting services and for "reasonable promotion and publicity" for the 2006 film, which featured Hilton as the president of an exclusive sorority.
Company spokesperson Michael Goldberg claims Hilton's failure to plug the movie's DVD release cost investors more than $8.3 million (£5.5 million).
In a Miami Federal Court deposition, Hilton insists she honoured her contract, and blames her overflowing work schedule for not meeting what she claims were last-minute demands.
She says, "Any chance I got, any red carpet, any press, if I was doing something for another product  I would just bring it up. 'Oh, my new sorority film, it's going to be sexy, it's going to be really hot girls' - like I really, you know, did my best."
Hilton's lawyer, Michael Weinstein added at a pretrial motion hearing: "She's the single busiest person on the planet."
Hilton's trial is scheduled to begin on 8 June (09).
