From the moment that ParisExposed.com rolled open the corrugated steel door to its virtual storage locker jammed with Paris Hilton's abandoned bubble-bath videos, incriminating tampon-blunt photos, and various diaries detailing the day-to-day life of America's most accomplished practitioner of the celebutard arts, it seemed destined to be shut down by a lawsuit. The AP reports that Hilton filed suit yesterday to shutter the online swap-meet stall offering peeks at her expensively acquired crap:
"I was appalled to learn that people are exploiting my and my sisters' private personal belongings for commercial gain," Hilton said in a declaration supporting the lawsuit, adding she was concerned the information could be used for identity theft or harassment.
The lawsuit alleges defendants Nabil and Nabila Haniss 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 site ParisExposed.com. [...]
Hilton's publicist Elliot Mintz said that she would like the site shut down and "would like all of these items returned to her."
Indeed, the threat of fraud is quite real; should malefactors get their hands on a document like this, they could stroll into virtually any Horton & Converse location in Los Angeles and illicitly obtain the powerful herpes-suppressing medication that would allow them to step right in to the victimized heiress's lifestyle. The courts will undoubtedly shut down the site before the VIP sections of Hollywood are overrun with Hilton imposters offering their prescription bottles of Valtrex as proof of their purloined identity.
