Perez Hilton Vs. X17: Lawsuits Galore!

ph28.jpg

Perez Hilton fires back in his war with photo agency X17, claiming that he’s been hurt by “illegal and unethical business practices” and that they exploit the company’s photographers, many of whom are “from Brazil or other countries” and are “believed to be illegal aliens.” He also charges that the agency may “employ photographers with criminal backgrounds and/or gang affiliations.”

Okay, so they hired one sex offender. Ramon “Twist” Kirk. And okay, so he likes to take pictures of Reese Witherspoon and her kids.

But do Brazilians hurt Perez? Getting a Brazilian, sure, but hiring a Brazilian?

FBLA guess we’ll just have to wait for the book.
