Paris Hilton sues over shoe brand

Socialite and fashion designer Paris Hilton has filed a lawsuit over her name-branded shoe line amid allegations she was cheated out of royalties.

The hotel heiress entered into a business agreement with bosses at the Antebi Footwear Group in 2007, granting them permission to use her name to create a collection of high-end women's heels in exchange for at least $720,000 in royalty payments.


However, Hilton claims she received less than half of the contracted amount, and now she is suing for more than $1 million in compensation, according to TMZ.com.


The shoe venture isn't Hilton's only fashion endeavor - she also has her own range of handbags and accessories, in addition to her line of fragrances.
