Is Paris Hilton the latest paparazzi princess to add jewelry thief to her illustrious resume?
According to the New York Daily News, the ‘heirhead’ is being sued by German insurance giant, Allianz, for not returning $60,000 worth of Damiani loaner jewelry that was stolen (and subsequently recovered) from her house in that notorious celebrity jewelry crime spree back in 2009.
“Despite having recovered Damiani’s jewelry, [Hilton has] failed to return all of the jewelry to Damiani as required by the Agreements,” the suit said.
In court paper, Allianz said Damiani in 2007 loaned Hilton $60,000 of jewelry to wear for public appearances. As part of the deal, Hilton agreed to stash the jewelry in a safe or a vault whenever she wasn’t wearing it.
But, or course, our Paris does whatever she darn well pleases – so she left the baubles for the world to grab in her unlocked, unalarmed Beverly Hills mansion. And now that the police have long recovered the stolen bling, she just hasn’t ‘bothered’ to return it to its rightful owners.
I’m of half a mind to think she’s doing it to get back in the headlines after Lindsay Lohan and Kim Kardashian stole her ‘famous for being famous’ thunder this year. But my guess is? She’s just not into details.
No comment yet from the Hilton camp. Why can’t these ladies get their diamond details down? Is this just poor planning or an ‘I’m above it all’ attitude gone bad?
