Looks like it’s a case of, “When it rains, it pours”. In Paris Hilton’s case, it seems to be raining and pouring bad luck these days.
First she had a stranger break into her house, next she was caught red-handed with a clear baggie of cocaine (although she did say the purse it fell out of was not hers, and that she thought the baggie contained “chewing gum) then her boyfriend, Cy Waits, lost his job and now her latest debacle — she might have to pay more than $160,000 to an entertainment group that took (too much of) a gamble in hiring her.
Worldwide Entertainment Inc is said to have hired Paris to star in a 2006 straight-to-DVD comedy “Pledge This!” and paid her $1 million for doing so. According to the entertainment company, Paris pledged to do the full publicity rounds but bailed on interviews with U.K. and Russian publications.
U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno reined in the figure a little bit and tentatively estimated the amount Hilton owes the entertainment group at $160,000, although he said he wants to further review her contract before finalizing the number.
