PARIS HILTON is being sued by a woman who claims the blonde socialite ‘stole’ her look.
The Simple Life star has been accused of causing “emotional distress” to fellow Californian, Nicolle O’Neill, who fancies herself as an inspiration to the party-loving heiress.
In a bizarre personal injury complaint filed in Los Angeles Superior Court earlier this month (18Oct07), O’Neill alleges that she suffers psychologically because of Hilton and accuses the 26-year-old of ripping off her style, including fashion-related “patens” (sic) and “stiling” (sic) tips.
Two pages of documents spell out specific charges against Hilton, including a claim that she stole O’Neill’s idea to expose her underwear under her trousers.
O’Neill also claims Paris swiped her idea to shop in vintage stores for retro dresses.
Hilton has yet to issue a response to the allegations.
