Hilton Auction To Be Halted?
Items up for auction from a storage locker owned by STARS ARE BLIND singer Paris Hilton could be taken off eBay after the auction website was threatened with legal action. DAVID HANS SCHMIDT, who claims he has the contractual rights to the items, was outraged to find several things up for auction on the site. Among the items on offer are chokers, earrings and a myriad of other costume jewellery once owned by the hotel heiress. Schmidt's attorney, JAMES BELL, is firing off a cease and desist letter to eBay, demanding they stop any sale of the items, according to entertainment website TMZ.com. The broker claims he is currently in negotiations with several major US corporations, including a major health and fitness organisation, to trade the items for promotional services to be rendered by Hilton.
