It seems that Paris Hilton's notorious lifestyle and bizarre antics have cost her the 25 million pound fortune her grandfather had set aside for her.
Appalled by her wild behaviour, Paris' grandfather and head of the Hilton clan, Baron Hilton, has cut off her 25 million pound inheritance.
Hilton senior, the only member of the family left with a substantial stake in the huge hotel chain, has declared that he intends to donate to charity the 1 billion pounds he will get from this month's sale of the company to private equity firm Blackstone.
He has also said that his other 11 grandchildren will also not benefit from the windfall, and instead, is determined to continue the family tradition for philanthropy.
"He was, and is, extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris. He doesn't want to leave unearned wealth to his family," the Daily Mail quoted Jerry Oppenheimer, the author of House Of Hilton, as saying.
Baron's decision has come after a series of embarrassing situations his grand daughter has created for him. These range from her non-stop rounds of partying, to her penchant for shedding her clothes and to her passionate performance in a home sex video leaked on to the internet.
The final blow for Baron was Paris' 23 day jail sentence in the Century Regional Detention Centre in Lynwood, California, in June after she was caught driving her Bentley on Sunset Boulevard while prohibited following a drink-drive conviction.
