Hilton ‘drops lawsuit’

Paris Hilton has apparently avoided litigation with a New York-based footwear company.

Paris Hilton has reportedly dropped her lawsuit against a New York shoe company.

The socialite partnered with Antebi Footwear to launch her Paris Hilton Footwear line in 2007.

But the collaboration soured with Paris accusing executives of failing to pay her royalties in a $1 million lawsuit, according to the New York Daily News.

The company responded with a $2 million counterclaim, charging that she was promoting shoes for a rival brand.

The case was expected to see its day in court next year. But according to the outlet, lawyers for both sides have filed documents in Manhattan Federal Court seeking to have the case "voluntarily dismissed in its entirety”.

Paris’ lawyer told the newspaper terms of the settlement are confidential. “The action was amicably resolved,” Michael Weinsten said.

No further details were provided.

Paris is currently enjoying a DJ residency in Ibiza, which she announced had been extended late last month after her Foam and Diamonds party at club Amnesia became a hit with fans.

“So happy & proud!” she wrote in a post on her Instagram page.

“My #FoamAndDiamonds Party has been such a huge success that the owner has asked to extend my DJ residency to do more shows this Summer! Thank you to all my ragers! I do this for you! This has been the best Summer of my life! Every week my party has been sold out & overcapacity. The energy in the room is indescribable! So full of love & life! I love you all! See you again this Wednesday at @AmnesiaIbiza(sic).”
