Paris Hilton’s father, Rick Hilton, was approached by TMZ reporters at LAX on Sunday who asked about his daughter’s recent cocaine bust. He was chatty, reports the website, but what he had to say was not much help.
Apparently Rick mimicked every question back to the reporters, giving them what sounds like an echo interview. The father of the wayward diva echoed all the reporters’ concerns right back at them by repeating their questions. Rick Hilton and the rest of his family, besides his world-traveling daughter Paris, appear to be private people.
The only time Paris Hilton’s extended family is seen in photos or in video is when Paris does something to make the news. Although the Hiltons are famous due to the Hilton Hotel chain, along with being one of America’s most financially well-off families, they are very seldom in the news.
When Paris went to jail for those few days a while back, both her parents were very visible at that time, as well as her sister Nicky. But unless Paris is causing some type of controversy, the extended Hilton family is off the grid.
Rick Hilton most likely did not want to comment on his daughter’s recent headline news. This is not something a father is going to be proud of. What would he say, “yes, my little girl has done it again, she has managed to be caught with drugs”? It is not as if she has won a sporting game three times running; she was arrested three times within a few months for drugs.
Paris is going on 29 years old, so she is not a kid anymore by any stretch of the imagination, but she is still very childlike. Her parents long since have relinquished responsibility for her deeds because of the age factor, but they could do something to help: Cut off the family money for a while and make the money contingent on passing drug tests.
This girl has more than enough money at her disposal and no responsibilities. This is a recipe for disaster. She has absolutely no reason to stop her partying ways.
Rick must have heard Jerry Lewis’ comments over the weekend about Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton. He wanted to smack both of them in the mouth for their behaviors, according to the Post Chronicle. He has said more about Paris’ behavior than has Rick Hilton, her own father. Maybe Rick should give the iconic entertainer a call for some adult parenting tips.
Paris was born with a sliver spoon in her mouth, and she has been able to afford to live this life because of it. Paris’ story is very similar to another heiress whose lifestyle ended up being fatal. Casey Johnson, the heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, was found dead in her home after being there for a few days. She was a hard-partying girl and neglected her diabetes, which led to her death, according to The Huffington Post.
One thing is for sure: If you pull the plug on Paris Hilton’s funds, she is going to have to change her ways. The only ones who can do this is her parents, if they still have access to the money she receives.
