Antebi Footwear Group is suing Paris Hilton for breach of contract. The designer of the Paris Hilton Footwear collection of shoes is seeking $2 million in royalties from the celebrity.
The company claims Hilton turned her back on Antebi and partnered up with a competitor, Retouch. Hilton joined forces with the company to license a competing shoe line called Parisian Parc. Antebi claims this is a direct violation of Hilton’s contract agreement.
The case outlines how Paris Hilton went on her social media channels to promote Retouch.
Hilton first slapped Antebi with a $1 million-plus lawsuit, claiming the company edged her out of royalties unlawfully when the company didn’t honor its licensing agreement. Antebi contends Hilton broke the agreement first.
In addition to $2 million in royalties, Antebi is seeking to have Hilton’s lawsuit thrown out.
