Paris Hilton’s Grandfather is Barron Hilton. The money he isn’t passing along to his heirs is money he got by suing his father, Conrad.
Conrad Hilton established the foundation in 1944 and when he died in 1979 left virtually all of his fortune — including, according to media reports at the time, a 27 percent controlling stake in Hilton Hotels — to the charity.
But Barron Hilton challenged the will and after a nearly decade-long legal struggle reached an out-of-court settlement to split ownership of the shares with the foundation in 1988, The New York Times reported.
The lawyers are lining up now. I think I could win this case. Precedent and all that. Why not sue? It’s not like people will lose respect for her.
Take money from the nuns? (Conrad left money to Catholic Charities.) They’ll get over it.
She should sue. How can she live on just $5 million? Seriously, when you drop a couple grand on a purse and you need a different purse for every outfit, what’s a gal to do?
She may make millions from showing up for parties, endorsing smelly stuff, Carl’s Jrs. Burgers, etc.
But in the long run, until the lawsuit settles? She needs to find a sugar-daddy. Hmmmm, here are some thoughts:
- Mr. Blackwell – not rich enough, oops, gay
- David Bowie – gay.
- Chasity Bono – I wonder how much money she got when Sonny croaked?
- Neil Patrick Harris – ahahahaha, picture those two together, even if he wasn’t gay.
- Rosie O’Donnell?
I got it! I got it!
Elton John! Sir Elton John! That would make her Lady John. Opens up a hole new line of endorsement possibilities.
OK, I can rest now knowing that our American Idol has a secure future.
