Hilton Wins First Round Of Pledge This Battle

18 August 2009 6:31 PM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

The producers of Paris Hilton's 2006 film flop Pledge This have been given until 26 August to prove the socialite owes them cash.

The bosses of Worldwide Entertainment Group sued Hilton and her company, Paris Hilton Entertainment, for breach of contract, claiming she failed to properly promote the film.

And they wanted Hilton to pay back the $1 million (£666,600) she was paid.

During a two-day trial in Miami, Florida, Hilton testified she did her best to promote the movie, and U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno agreed, stating the movie was "hardly destined for critical acclaim".

He added, "Any causal connection between Ms. Hilton's alleged breaches and the financial ruin of the film are wholly speculative."

A receiver representing the producers have been given until 26 August to submit arguments that Hilton should pay back parts of her $1 million fee. »

Paris Hilton won't owe $8.3 mil over 'Pledge'

18 August 2009 3:00 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Miami -- Paris Hilton will not have to pay $8.3 million in damages claimed by the receiver for a defunct entertainment firm who said she failed to promote a movie flop called "Pledge This!"

But the decision by U.S. District Judge Federico Moreno on Monday left open the possibility the receiver might be able to claw back part of a $1 million fee paid to Hilton for the 2006 National Lampoon movie.

Michael Goldberg, a court-appointed receiver for Worldwide Entertainment Group, sued Hilton and her company, Paris Hilton Entertainment, for breach of contract, alleging she failed to properly promote the film, in which she played the president of a sorority at fictional South Beach University.

Goldberg sought to recoup the $8.3 million cost of producing the movie, including Hilton's $1 million fee.

During a two-day trial in the Miami federal court, Hilton testified she did her best to promote the movie.

Hilton To Testify In Breach Of Contract Suit

9 July 2009 9:06 AM, PDT | WENN | See recent WENN news »

Socialite Paris Hilton will take the stand in a Miami, Florida court on Friday to testify against allegations she failed to adequately promote her 2006 movie flop Pledge This!.

The hotel heiress is being sued for breach of contract by bosses at Worldwide Entertainment Group Inc., who claim she neglected to honour promotion and publicity agreements for the film, insisting she owes investors a massive $8.3 million (£5.5 million).

The movie executives claim Hilton was paid $1 million (£666,670) for her acting services and for "reasonable promotion and publicity" for the film, which featured the socialite/actress as the president of an exclusive sorority.

A judge rejected a motion by Hilton's legal team to dismiss the lawsuit in May and the trial began on Thursday.

Hilton, who maintains she did her best to promote the picture, is expected in court on Friday.

Pledge This! failed to set the box office alight upon its release, garnering just $2.9 million (£1.93 million) worldwide. »
