Kibosh put on Paris’ stuff site

February 5, 2007

While some of us we’re sleeping off our beer-and-brats Super Bowl hangover, Paris Hilton‘s lawyers were hard at work getting an injunction against the Paris’-private-stuff profiteers at ParisExposed.com.

ParisExposed siteIf you’re not familiar with the story on how the founders of this subscription-only site bought the contents of Paris Hilton’s storage locker at auction after her representatives defaulted on the locker’s rent, go back and check my previous posts.

It’s really an amazing story … but more amazing that Hilton left all this supposedly racy stuff unguarded.

They were also the people suspected of releasing a video to the public of Hilton using racial and homosexual slurs at a past party, which probably sped up the urgency of this injuction.

From the AP/MSNBC post late last night:

A federal judge has issued a temporary injunction against a Web site peddling personal pictures, videos, diaries, and other items that heiress Paris Hilton once kept at a storage facility.

Hilton sued the Web site ParisExposed.com last month, accusing it of exploiting her private personal belongings for commercial gain. The injunction issued Friday temporarily bars the Web site from releasing Hilton’s Social Security number, health data and other personal information. …

The subscription-based Web site was launched last month and claims to have footage of Hilton in a “sexy bubble bath” video and various shots of the 25-year-old socialite in “racy situations.”

Hilton previously said she put her possessions in storage two years ago when she and her sister, Nicky, moved out of a house that had been burglarized. The lawsuit alleges two defendants paid $2,775 for the contents of the storage unit and later sold the items for $10 million to entrepreneur Bardia Persa, who created the Web site.

The suit goes to court on Feb. 15.
