In a bizarre attempt to fund his defense of the $7 million lawsuit being launched against him by several paparazzi organizations because he steals their photos, Perez Hilton today released some new items of merch.

The only problem is, two of the designs are blatant rip-offs of artwork created for an interview our Canadian sister-site Torontoist conducted with the controversial LA gossip queen last fall.

According to Torontoist, Perez approached the Ontarians to design elements for t-shirts for the embroiled blogger, but nothing ever was finalized.

So it appears as if Perez simply ganked the beautiful original and made knock-offs for his own financial benefit. As if!

Stay tuned to see if Perez suddenly makes Torontoist (majority) partners in his t-shirt company, since it is their design that he's riffing off, cheaply, if you ask us. And since Mr. Hilton makes between $9000 - $16,000 (American) per week per ad on his infamous blog, hopefully Torontoist can settle out of court for a princely sum.

One thing we've gotta say, although Perez is a self-hating gay-bashing unoriginal hack and unworthy of being placed in the same genre as folks like Defamer, Trent, CityRag, and goldenfiddle, the haters in his comments are always worthy of a laugh and possibly the only reason why God Almighty hasn't chosen to strike him and his site down.
