Santa Existed For Paris Hilton Until She Was Seventeen

There is no word on her knowledge regarding the existence of the tooth fairy, the Easter bunny, or of weapons of mass destruction in Iraq.

“I believed in Santa Claus until I was 17 when some mean person told me it wasn’t true.

“When my sister and I were kids we used to get up at 6am but now I’m a little lazy so I get up at 11.”

She told American magazine Shop Etc: “I shop every day so if I see things for a friend I get it and there’s a closet I have for presents and I just keep them until Christmas.

“That’s better than waiting until the last minute because then you get lame gifts.”

While Paris may have been enthralled with Santa Claus until she was 17-years-old, she probably isn’t too enthralled with her boyfriend Stavros Niarchos right now. At the Musicians Rock the Soul party after the American Music Awards, Stavros got into a verbal brawl with Paris Latsis, and later puked before making it to the bathroom.

“Stavros and Paris [Latsis] were yelling at each other near one of the VIP tables,” says a witness at L.A.’s Privilege. “Paris finally dragged Stavros away.” Another source at the party says that shortly afterward, a sick-looking Niarchos dashed into a rest room – but didn’t quite make it to a stall.

“He puked everywhere,” says the tipster. “[He and Paris] finally left the party after she got him out of the bathroom and cleaned him up.”

Hilton rep Elliot Mintz argues that Latsis and Niarchos had a pleasant conversation. As for the upchucking, Mintz says, “I was with them all night, and I saw no evidence of that.” He added that “Stavros has a friend who looks just like him” – the same doppelgänger blamed for wrecking a Vegas hotel suite shared by Hilton and Niarchos recently. That could be a handy friend to have.
