Jenna Jameson - sued for breach of contract. Not exactly the spiciest of lawsuits for the adult film star. The Jenna Jameson lawsuit is arising out of a contract that Jameson apparently reneged on in late March. At least we have Zombie Strippers to balance things out.

The owners of Hollywood Palms Cinema and Hollywood Blvd. in Illinois are alleging that Jameson "faked it" to get out of appearing at their theater to do a promotion for her 2008 film "Zombie Strippers!"

Jameson's agent gave the theater owners a "doctor's note" indicating that the actress had a "medical emergency" which prevented her from attending the scheduled event, reports the Chicago Tribune. The theater owners were none-too-pleased when images of Jameson later surfaced on the web - she had attended celebrity blogger Perez Hilton's "Perez's Blue Ball" in Hollywood, which took place on the same weekend as the "Zombie Strippers!" event.

The theater owners believe that the damages exceed over $50,000, though they do not specify the exact amount on the complaint, reports the Chicago Sun-Times. Jameson also refused to reschedule the event, as specified in the contract if she missed the original event date.

Not only that, but apparently it was difficult to even track down Jameson. She avoided process servers by refusing to answer the door at her Huntington Beach, California, home, according to the Chicago Sun-Times.

And, when the theater owners tried to contact the lawyer that Jameson claimed to have, the lawyer said that he did not know Jameson, and that he had only met her once at a birthday party, reports the Sun-Times.

Breach of contract claims usually arise when one party refuses to perform or deliver their side of the bargain when they have no legally-valid excuse. Jameson's allegedly fake "illness" is probably something that does not legally excuse her out of the contract. Plus, her outright denial to reschedule the event when the contract specifically contains a provision requiring her to do so seems to be the nail in the coffin for her legal defense case.

The Jenna Jameson lawsuit was filed in Illinois. As for Jenna Jameson, now sued for breach of contract, she better start producing some evidence that she was sick that weekend.
