Is Paris Hilton the latest paparazzi princess to add jewelry thief to her illustrious resume?
According to the New York Daily News, the ‘heirhead’ is being sued by German insurance giant, Allianz, for not returning $60,000 worth of Damiani loaner jewelry that was stolen (and subsequently recovered) from her house in that notorious celebrity jewelry crime spree back in 2009.
Why do I feel like I’ve been in this movie before?
“Despite having recovered Damiani’s jewelry, [Hilton has] failed to return all of the jewelry to Damiani as required by the Agreements,” the suit said.
In court paper, Allianz said Damiani in 2007 loaned Hilton $60,000 of jewelry to wear for public appearances. As part of the deal, Hilton agreed to stash the jewelry in a safe or a vault whenever she wasn’t wearing it.
But, or course, our Paris does whatever she darn well pleases – so she left the baubles for the world to grab in her unlocked, unalarmed Beverly Hills mansion. And now that the police have long recovered the stolen bling, she just hasn’t ‘bothered’ to return it to its rightful owners.
I’m of half a mind to think she’s doing it to get back in the headlines after Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian stole her ‘famous for being famous’ thunder this year. But my guess is? She’s just not into details.
No comment yet from the Hilton camp. Why can’t these ladies get their diamond details down? Is this just poor planning or an ‘I’m above it all’ attitude gone bad?
How can one socialite drip in diamonds all the way from the blue grass of Kentucky to the blue bloods at the Kennedy Center in one weekend? Ask Paris Hilton, who was the belle of the ball at not one but two high profile social events in the past few days.
The first, of course, was the 135th Kentucky Derby, where a long shot came in first and Hilton dazzled the southern belles with her hunky arm candy and her chunky jewels as the co-host of the Barnstable-Brown pre–Derby event.
Wearing a poured-on Tadashi dress, the heiress sported serious caratage on her ears with a huge diamond cuff and right hand ring to top ‘er off.
And while Paris didn’t win any bets that day, she won a few hearts in our nation’s capital the next evening as she and her main man made a glittering appearance at the Kennedey Center’s Spring Gala, where Washington luminaries were entertained by the likes of k.d. lang, Lily Tomlin and other notable names.
Wearing a trendy gem-encrusted headband with yet another icy cuff from her treasure chest and a huge diamond ring rumored to be her grandmother’s, Hilton stole the show as the DC power scene scurried to fly in her orbit.
Thankfully, Michelle Obama entered the Presidential box to upstage her and bring everyone back to the real reason they were there – to celebrate women in the arts.
Which, of course, as a star of such worthy films as “The Hottie and the Nottie” and “Repo: The Generic Opera” our papparazzi-challenged reality star can so, like, relate to.
