'Paris Hilton's My New BFF' Gets Tangled in Legal Dispute


Paris Hilton


Paris Hilton's reality TV show has caught in the middle of legal dispute between show bosses and producers in Dubai who allegedly fail to pay a $4.7 million production costs.

Paris Hilton's reality TV search for a new best friend is at the center of an $8 million legal dispute between show bosses and producers in Dubai over plans to air the program in the United Arab Emirates. Lionsgate Television executives claim producers at Union Emirates, LLC signed a written agreement to co-produce and distribute MTV's Paris Hilton's "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" in the Middle East.

But they failed to pay up more than $4.7 million to cover the production and distribution costs and Lionsgate bosses filed a federal suit for breach of contract in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Tuesday, February 2.

Hilton filmed a special season of the show in Dubai in summer 2009 but the project has yet to make it to TV, reports TMZ.com. Lionsgate producers are seeking compensatory damages for the failed deal.
