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.

He's just another Idiot    

We don't hear much about the other children of Barron Hilton. Rick, Kathy and Paris are so disgusting that their relatives must be in hiding. Paris must be the most immature 26 year old in the country. In interviews, her baby voice and stupid poses and pouty mouth make her look retarded. Oh, yeah, she is !!

We adore you.

I don't buy it.... chances are Grampa Hilton is putting the dough into a chartiable remainder trust (look it up people) which means his heirs would continue to have use of the property or assets (in some form or another) and somebody else would pay the bill (typically a charity or the state - look at the big Hearst property in Cali as an example) - taxes, insurance, maintenance, staff, etc. Yes, the property is usually available for public use, but often the CRT will stipulate that the family members have "exclusive use" at certain times. So, anybody who is in the know will know that this does not mean she's not getting money. It just means it;s going to be repackaged into different trusts - some which will probably directly benefit the party girl and others that will probably indeirectly benefit the entire family). However, by setting it up this way, Paris won't "control" the money. Good thing she generates millions on her own. (actually, we should be giving her credit for that - I am about 5-10 yrs older and I haven't made nearly as much cash throughout my lifetime and I bet you haven't either!). Her granddad's a good guy with his head on straight (read a copy of his book when you stay at a Hilton - it's in every nightstand). It's too bad that his grandaughter is an attention-freak embarassment. But honestly people, who wouldn't wan to be Paris for a day????

Agreeing. HO HO HO Stupid x3

Paris should have her money yanked. With great privilege comes great responsibility. I mean how much can you really spend? Does Paris go to college or anything? Did she finish High School? I'm serious...I mean what would be the motive to do the right thing other than higher being of her understanding?

I feel sorry for Britney and her sister. They are under a magnifying glass. They aren't the blame...its their mother... For my part, gee, Lynne, if you wanted to be a show girl or a Nancy Sinatra ...then you should have auditioned and lived out your dream...instead of living through your kids. Does anybody else see this happening? *shurgs* just my opinion.

4. No grandfather who loves his family would abandon them financially because of one mistake.

It is to his benefit that she and her future children are able to survive in the world and get a good education to compete

Standards are badly needed.    

Paris partook in some pretty pricey partying. So now it's off to the salt mines for her, with a decades long, cranky hangover.

This is the best thing that could have happened to Paris Hilton! If her little stint in jail last summer did not open her eyes, this certainly will! Hallelujah - there is a God!

Barron Hilton's father also left HIS money to charity. Barron had to sue the estate to get what HE got. That's all these new people will do. They will get the money eventually. Do the research. The only good thing about this is that the gramps said publicly Paris was an embarrassment. Kudos for that. Rick and Kathy have always acted so proud of Paris, no matter how many people say she is a horrible person. SMACK!!!!

Paris has her own money. She has been paid to show up at clubs to drink and dance. She got piad for her TV reality show. She got paid for giving her name to nightclubs. She got paid to endorse products. She'll continue to get rewarded for bad behaviour. And you know darn well her parents will continue to suport her, emotionally as well as financially. She can't spell, has no education, no class and has purchased friends. The only thing she has is her name and she has cashed it in numerous times and will continue to do so. Poor little thing. She'll create her own demise.

OMG. He does exist!! I've never read a comment until now about Britney and Jamie Lynn's biological father.I thought they were conceived in a petridish.I knew their parents have been divorced for years but he's managed to stay out of the limelight. Good for him.Deep down he must be as embarrassed as Monica Lewinsky's father knowing that his daughter's reputation is ruined.There are two things a woman needs to protect because once they are damaged, they are hard to repair.These are your reputation and your credit.Obviously in "young Hollyweird" they don't care but they may regret it later in life.Papa Spears undoubtly has been shut out of his daughters lives for years and feels hopeless about trying and wanting to help now. He seems to be the only "sane" one.Too bad Sean and Jayden don't live with Grampa until this clusterf*** is resolved once and for all.

Ughhhh, one mistake. Where have you been hiding? The only person in that family that made only ONE mistake was Kathy Hilton. She should have swallowed.

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!    

Baron Hiton-the foundation=tax shelter=still all kids and grandkids getting something=the charity(foundations) still awarding causes and organizations too.There is plenty there for tax protection, family members and for many worthy cuases and organizations.

James (Jaime) Spears- alcholic, had problems, but we get second chances. He has been on thestraight and narrow for a longtime now. He has more sense than Lynn Spears. Good for him. I am sure Britney's money set him upin his LA restuarant ,but he is working. He is making sense. OK! Mag cover story and follow up stories masterminded by Lynne of this pitiful situation was NOT necessary..nor was allowwing Jamie Lynne and her boyfriend to live together andall of the mistakes she made with Britney.
