Paris Hilton

Los Angeles, CA: (Aug-22-07) Socialite and diamond heiress Zeta Graff brought a $10 million suit against Paris Hilton in 2005, alleging that Hilton fed a slanderous story to the New York Post about Graff attacking her at a club and ripping a necklace off her neck in what was supposedly a jealous rage over Hilton's fiancée at the time, Paris Latsis. Latsis dated Graff for two years before hooking up with Hilton and having a "Z" tattoo, presumably for Zeta removed from his wrist. The story stated that when Graff saw Hilton and her ex dancing, she went berserk. The article goes on to report that Graff tried to snatch a $4 million diamond necklace off Hilton's neck and had to be physically restrained by security guards before she was booted out of the club. Paris claimed that she was unaware of the article in the Post. However, her former publicist, Rob Shutter, went on the record to say that Hilton was the one who gave him the information to pass on to the Post. In a settlement reached, Hilton agreed to pay the currently undisclosed sum to resolve the lawsuit. Sources state that in agreeing to the settlement, Hilton saved herself from a perjury charge.
