James St. James posted the viral video yesterday of the “plane crash” prank played on Paris Hilton but contrary to what many said, she was NOT in on it. According to TMZ, she’s telling business associates she will sue the people responsible for putting her on a plane that appeared to be crashing. Paris is furious over the stunt in which a TV crew got the pilot to pretend to shut down the engines in her plane, and then nose-dive to the ground. Paris says she was scared for her life, something you can see in the video. Sources said she’s
“totally freaked out over flying anywhere”
…something she does all the time. She’s already called her lawyers to find out who’s responsible, and they told her she has a good case for “emotional distress”. Paris said she had absolutely no clue this was a prank … she wasn’t in on it. She also doesn’t believe anyone in her camp was involved. (I’m not clear how that works if it her plane and pilot…? It might have been arranged and chartered by the Egyptian TV show.) The show host engineered the prank as they flew over Dubai. And Paris says … it was MUCH worse than it looked on video. She says the plane nearly hit the water during the dive and then steeply pulled out of it, almost doing a loop as it went back up.
