Listen up Paris….I’ll do the same if you don’t stop harrassing me!
LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A judge on Tuesday ordered Paris Hilton to stay away from a Los Angeles party planner who accused the celebrity heiress of bombarding him with angry phone calls, shoving him and threatening his life.
Brian Quintana won a restraining order in Los Angeles Superior Court against the 24-year-old socialite best known for her television reality show “The Simple Life” and for a sex video that showed up on the Internet.
Quintana, who claims to have introduced Hilton to her current boyfriend, Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos, said problems began after she started dating Niarchos.
He said she accused him of trying to get Niarchos to ditch her for Niarchos’ former girlfriend, starlet Mary-Kate Olsen.
Quintana, who admitted under cross-examination that he committed perjury in a court case about a decade ago, said Hilton shoved him three times and made numerous phone calls threatening his life.
Hilton was not in court. Her spokesman, Elliot Mintz, told reporters after the hearing: “I’ve known Paris and worked with her, and the kind of person that was described on the stand this afternoon doesn’t resemble the woman that I know.”
Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Tim Murphy sided with Quintana, finding that despite his history of perjury, he had provided some evidence, and Hilton had not refuted it.
Hilton’s lawyer Howard Weitzman said the ruling was also a victory for Hilton because she wants nothing to do with Quintana.
“This individual is meaningless in her life, and from her perspective … he’s continued to harass her and insinuate himself into her life. And she’d like him out of it, so we offered to do that,” he said.
