Nicky Hilton sues ex-business partner for $5 mn

Los Angeles: American model Nicky Hilton has sued her former clothing line partners, Asher Group for $5 million, saying it was responsible for the failure of a high-end fashion venture that she undertook.

The sister of 31-year-old socialite Paris Hilton, Nicky signed a deal with Eliyahu Cohen and the Asher Group to launch Nicky Hilton Worldwide in 2006 and market top style products under her name, reports

She claimes they promised to provide $4.9 million in financing for the operation and pay her a guaranteed annual salary of $250,000 plus a 10 percent increase each year.

But in a lawsuit filed here in County Superior Court, Nicky said the Asher Group failed to secure the $4.9 million.

Nicky said Asher Group spent $9,000 per month on a personal assistant who "spent most of her time running personal errands for Asher and other tasks unrelated to NHW business".

She claimed Asher and Cohen`s irresponsible conduct caused her company to not do well, leaving Nicky to clean up the mess.

Now, she is demanding at least $5 million in damages.
