Paris: 'stop exposing me'

Looks to pull website displaying her personal bits

Paris Hilton is going after the website that is displaying possessions she forgot to reclaim from a storage lockup, saying she was “appalled” her personal items were being exploited for commercial gain.

The parisexposed.com site includes personal photos and videos, as well as Hilton’s passport. It was launched last week by one Bardia Persa, who apparently paid $10m for the items. He bought them from two individuals who had bought them for a measly $2,775 when a storage firm sold off the contents of Hilton’s storage locker after bills went unpaid.

According to AP, Hilton’s suit says that a removals firm was responsible for paying the bill for the storage locker. The items were in storage while Hilton and her sister were between houses following a burglary.

Unsurprisingly, Hilton says that as well as being “appalled” she is “shocked and surprised” to find her personal knick knacks being commercially exploited. Clearly her pocket thesaurus was not amongst the items left in the lock-up. She is also concerned that the personal documents displayed on the site could be used for identity theft.

There’s no word on when the case may be heard, so, any voyeurs willing to pay $39.97 to peruse the heiress’ medical records are safe for now.®
