Washington, April 15 (ANI): 'Hannah Montana' star Miley Cyrus has struck back against the "racist" lawsuit filed against her, saying the woman suing her was only looking to "publicly embarrass and harass " her.
Pictures of the 16-year-old had found their way on the Internet, depicting the star and a group of male friends pulling their eyes to apparently mock Asians.
Following the leak, Lucie J. Kim had turned to court in February seeking billion dollars in compensation on behalf of the one million-plus Asian-Pacific Islanders living in Los Angeles, reports Contactmusic.
And now, the actress' attorneys are asking the judges to toss the "manifestly frivolous" lawsuit.
The teen's legal team alleged that the suit was nothing less than a "publicity stunt in an effort to publicly embarrass and harass (Cyrus) and to obtain a large and quick class-action settlement".
TMZ.com further reported that Cyrus' team were also asking Kim to pay her legal bills till now, which amount up to 26,685 dollars. (ANI)
