The writ, exposed by Rimér's girlfriend Katrin Zytomierska on her blog on Thursday, dates back to last year, when Rimér filmed Hilton at her home while visiting for a few friendly drinks.

The footage has now found its way into a new music video for the Swedish band Treadstone and the Hilton heiress is not amused, as Zytomierska learned when she opened Rimér's mail.

"Here we are at home with Paris Hilton for a few drinks … a few drinks that have become very expensive for me … hahaha," Rimér posted on his own blog, below several pictures of himself and Hilton.

According to Zytomierska the lawsuit is nothing short of an entertaining, but hopefully short-lived, interruption to their summer vacation.

Story continues below…

"It's funny, I think. A bit of drama out on the island," she wrote.

I can see where she is coming from. I actually feel bad for these celebrities. I would not take their lifestyle even if it meant I could have their wealth. They can not leave their house without dealing with people shoving a camera in their face. If they dont look perfect they are plastered all over trashy magazines.

The least you can do is not sell the footage of a meeting you were invited to in their own home. That is pretty low.

If he gets a court date with a bunch of Americans who are sick to death of seeing pictures of this hosebag, it will be very expensive for him. Her and Lindsy Lohan are sickening.

Regardless of what you think of Paris Hilton, she was exploited for commercial purposes by someone posing as a guest or friend in her home. That kind of behavior clearly violates her privacy and is actionable. That this guy (or his girlfriend) bragged about it is truly bizarre.
