Paris Hilton is being sued by Nicolle O'Neill, who accused the heiress of stealing her style. This is by far one of the most bizarre legal incidences I've heard of this year!
O'Neill, who I had not heard of until today, says she has suffered psychological trauma and "emotional distress" as a result of the heiress knocking off her fashion sense, apparently copying her signature look. The L.A. woman also claims shopping in vintage stores was her idea.
"Nicolle claims Paris stole her fashion-related 'patens' [sic] and 'stiling' [sic] tips," Pop Crunch said.
"She also accuses Paris of swiping several innovative style techniques, among them, exposing her 'je-streeng underware (bikiny)' [sic] and shopping in vintage stores.
"Nicolle is seeking several billion dollars in damages."
No word on Hilton's response yet, and no images found of the apparent the woman who apparently "inspires" her wardrobe either.
