Paris Hilton, who has been seen partying with everyone from Snoop Dogg to 50 Cent, is taking legal action against an author whose new book suggests that Paris hates Black men.
“I can’t stand Black guys. I would never touch one. It’s gross,” she’s quoted as saying in Neil Strauss’ new book Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead.
In the tell-all, the author describes an exchange in which Paris said she was happily making out with an actor in the dark, but once they moved to a better lit area where she realized he was Black, she quickly shut him down.
“I saw that he was Black and made an excuse and left,” she reportedly said, adding that “one percent” is enough to exclude a guy from her list of eligible make-out partners.
Paris’ response: “These allegations are absolutely untrue and ridiculous. We have sent these claims to Miss Hilton’s lawyers to respond further. It’s another example of someone making false claims for financial gain,” reads a statement from her rep.
However, this isn’t the first time the socialite has been accused of racism. In 2008, Brandon Davis, a former boyfriend, said he ended their friendship because she always used the N-word.
“She uses the word all the time and I’ve known her all my life,” he said.
