Heirhead Paris Hilton is going to court this month. Not as a fairy princess in a royal court, but as the defendant in some ugly legal business in a court of law. Seems she spread slanderous lies about fellow heiress Zeta Graff, who once dated Hilton’s humped-and-dumped fiance, shipping heir Paris Latsis. Hilton said Graff went psycho in a London club, attempted to strangle the gentle Hilton, and then lunged for her diamond necklace, and the whole tale was reported in the New York Post. Rob Shuter, Hilton’s former mouthpiece, said deposed in chambers that Hilton asked him to plant the story so he gave the paper comments attributed to himself, Hilton, and other sources – all dictated by Hilton. Graff denies everything (she says Hilton snarled “I’m going to destroy you”) and is seeking $10 million in damages.
Wait, there’s more. A hearing is on the blotter concerning another matter brought against Hilton. Promoter Brian Quintana said that the girl regularly harasses and badmouths him in the press and even threatened his life, and he wants a restraining order brought against her. Doesn’t that sound frivolous? Isn’t harassing, badmouthing, and threatening lives a given among the nightclub set after a few cocktails and a coupla lines of coke? Perhaps not in this case.
