Paris in Poorhouse After Gramps Gives $$$ Away?

12/27/2007 9:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

All the coin that Paris thought she was going to get from her Hilton inheritance? It could be gone, gone, gone -- and it's all her grandfather's fault.

Barron Hilton announced Wednesday that he would be giving 97 percent of his $2.3 billion fortune to charity, specifically to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, putting Paris' reported $30 million windfall in some doubt. (There will still be between $70M and $130M left, presumably for the family.)

A biographer has said that Grandpa Barron is "embarrassed" by Paris' behavior and supposedly even threatened to yank her inheritance entirely a few years back. Paris couldn't be reached for comment on the development.

Peeved Papa Spears a No-Show for Xmas


Britney and Jamie Lynn Spears' daddy is still so "furious" that their mama Lynne sold J-L's story to the glossies that he ditched his daughters for Christmas.

Us reports that Jamie Spears, a private chef, "didn't spend Christmas with [Lynne] or Jamie Lynn and instead stayed in L.A. to work." Unlike Lynne, says the mag, Jamie "doesn't get a dime from his daughters ... He busts his ass to take care of himself. That's why he's so furious with Lynne."

Jamie has, however, seen the Brit boys, Sean and Jayden, while in L.A., according to Us.

I agree with #11. I have always wondered why with so much "help" given to poor countries, for at least 40 years now, they are even poorer than ever and more devastated by disease and famine. Meanwhile, all "charity" outfits, perhaps like Hilton's, are laughing all the way to the bank and dring champagne with the heads of IRS!!!

Grandpa Hilton probably did this so that his family would not have to pay inheritance/estate tax. I don't really know too much about it ,but I don't believe he is leaving it all to a chairty set up by him because he is a swell individual.

Party 'till you die!    

I used to work for Hilton hotels and out of curiosity, I once asked what to do if we were questioned about the family ( Paris specifically ) and we were quietly told to NEVER make any comments about the Hilton girls. At least this was what my manager told me. I never questioned this order, nor did I break it. But I was never asked his and was professional enough to have kept my mouth shut anyway! But man has she done some damage to the brand! She is not well thought of in that circle! I always hated the thought that Paris could make a single dime off of our hard work! The best thing that could happen for the Hilton brand is to totally cut her out of the picture! I still hope this happens!

HOW STUPID DO YOU THINK WE ARE? The Conrad H. Hilton Charity is a tax shelter controlled by the Hilton Family. They can withdraw from it, tax free, anytime they want. Inheritance is taxed. Imagine the tax on that fortune?

Barron Hilton DONATES 2.3 billion to a foundation, the money goes to charity... but again we have to read reports about useless Paris. Why doesn't TMZ praise his generosity and report about the projects which are financed by the foundation? Would be more interesting!

By TMZ's focus on Paris Barron is "rewarded" for his good deed by reports about somebody he feels embarassed, ugh!

It's very possible that Paris could have known about this for years, and could be part of the reason she "works" and makes her own money. She gets paid a fortune for appearances and that kind of thing.

This is not uncommon with the ultra-rich. I would not worry too much, there are also usually provisions and trusts and things like that from all the various relatives. She will probably end up working for the Foundation one day as well.

Also, I don't think you can blame it on her being a "party girl" the other grandchildren were cut out as well. Imagine being Nicky and being the good one all these years, only to find yourself cut out of the money? It would not make any difference.

Grandpa Hilton should be embarassed by his grandaughter. I wouldn't leave her a damn dime. Maybe she'll have to get an actual J O B like the rest of us. She goes thru money like there's no tomorrow. You go Grandpa - give it all away.

I can't blame the man for donating his money to charity. Paris is wild and out of control and she will put more porn out there. And as for the Spears family god help them because they need it

her parents are still supposed to be worth about 800 million dollars so even they this charity is legit I doubt that it will really matter to them

And paris probobly already has tons of money saved up from all of the stuff that she does
