Paris Hilton is a genius
Graff’s lawyer, Paul Berra, asked, “Were there U.K. publications?” Hilton responded: “No… there is stuff in London.” Hilton’s lawyer, Larry Stein, jumped in: “London is a U.K. publication.” Her retort: “Right. U.K. Whatever.”
Hilton swore she never saw a republication of the article: “I was in Europe the whole summer, and all there is is like French — I didn’t see anything because I wasn’t in America.”
Hilton testified on the night in question she did have a minor run-in with Graff, the former girlfriend of Hilton’s then-boyfriend Paris Latsis. Hilton stated, “I just said to her… she is old and should stay at home with her child instead of being at nightclubs with young people. And just that — I just – what else did I say? Just that she is not cute at all.”
She added that Graff had threatened Latsis: “He said that she threatened to send Mexican people to come and beat the s..t out of him.”
Hilton testified that she too was scared: “He said that she was going to do voodoo on me. And I kind of do believe in that stuff a little bit, so I was a little bit scared about that… “
Hilton, who was admonished several times to use the word “no” instead of “huh-uh,” had problems explaining emails between herself and her then-publicist, Rob Shuter.
At one point she blurted out: “I’m so hungry.”
It’s probably not a good sign when somebody can read your court transcript and confuse you with a mentally disabled eight-year old.
