Celebrities’ causes for filing a lawsuit vary greatly: from divorce to housemaids’ claims.
Paris Hilton had to show up in court because Hairtech International, a hair weaves manufacturer, filed a lawsuit against her. According to the contract, Paris was supposed to use only their products in the advertisement for hair extentions. But her hairstyle incorporated a competitor’s weaves. We read on Zoomboola, that the amount of the claim is $35 million, which is 10 times the compensation for the hair extensions advertising.
Lady Gaga’s former personal assistant sued the celebrity in 2001. She filed a claim of $380,000. The assistant had been in Lady Gaga’s employment for over a year, accompanying her in the world tournament and serving as her personal alarm clock and go-to girl. She made sure to satisfy all of the singer’s whims. There was no lunch break, and sometimes the celebrity would call her in the middle of the night with an insignificant request. The claim was the bill for the unpaid overtime. The singer denied the charges and was really surprised, as she had considered the assistant to be her good friend.
Naomi Campbell threw her phone at Anna Skovalino’s head on the spur of the moment. The victim appealed to the authorities. The court’s verdict was 5 days of community service and $363 to cover Skovalenko’s medical bills. Worth noting, this is not the only case of such behavior on the part of Campbell. In 2000, she was seen fighting her personal assistant whom she was holding by the throat.
