Kathy and Rick Hilton and Paris' 29th birthday party at TAO nightclub in Las Vegas (2/20)
Kathy and Rick . . . ummm, how best to put this . . . about those checks you've been receiving for 8 years . . . so, yeah, we're going to need those back. From TMZ:
Herbalife International just filed a lawsuit against Rick and Kathy Hilton, claiming the couple has been "erroneously" receiving royalties for several weight loss products for roughly 8 years.Who's at fault here? The Hiltons for collecting the checks or Herbalife for continuing to pay them? If your company is paying royalties to someone on a product that was discontinued 8 years ago because it was banned by the FDA for containing harmful substances, you should probably worry less about suing spokespeople and more about paying this month's utility bill.
Long story short -- Herbalife says in 1992, the couple provided services to the company to get a line of products off the ground ... products containing ephedrine that were discontinued in 2002 -- mostly because ephedrine was banned by the FDA.
Herbalife claims despite 86'ing the line .... it has still been paying the Hiltons royalties. According to the suit, there have been ongoing but futile discussions about how much, if anything, the Hiltons should return.
NOTE: This may be the first time I've ever supported the Hiltons on anything -- other than their continued use of birth control.
