Paris Hilton has filed her own lawsuit against a Panama-based Internet company for violating her privacy and publicity rights - after it broadcast her sex tape on the net.

Hilton is demanding $15 million (GBP8.3 million) from KAHATANI LTD after bosses there ignored her pleas not to air the three-year-old video and instead beamed it round the world.

The hotel heiress claims the company has caused her "severe economic, emotional and other irreparable injury."
