Washington (ANI): Less than eight days after selling her Hollywood pad for 4.25 million dollars, Hilton heiress Paris Hilton has reportedly purchased a five-bedroom mansion in Beverly Hills, California. The hotel heiress sold off her 3.000-square foot, Spanish style pad which she bought in 2004, as she wanted to relocate to a secluded place to avoid the paparazzi after the drama following her arrest and release. According to US Weekly the new home located in a gated community has its own gym and a gourmet kitchen, Contactmusic reports.
The Mediterranean-style mansion also has a pool, complete with Jacuzzi, waterfall and hotel-style cabanas, as well as separate guest quarters and a separate office. Earlier, the residents of Hollywood hills circulated a petition asking their neighbours to bring in the police to attend to the swarm of photogs and noise levels due to Hilton"s arrest. Actress Cameron Diaz was also among the residents who expressed her displeasure.
Paris Hilton has arrived at an amicable settlement in a 10 million dollars slander lawsuit with diamond heiress Zeta Graff. However, the terms of settlement has not been revealed. The socialite"s lawyers said that the both are glad that they have resolved the matter without taking much time. "Both parties are glad that the matter could be resolved without the time and expense of a trial. The resolution is confidential, and no one will comment further," E! Online quoted the lawyers, as saying. In May this year, the case"s hearing was postponed to August 22 after Hilton said that she was distraught over her imminent jail sentence.
Graff brought a 10-million-dollar slander and libel lawsuit against Paris Hilton for having a false and damaging story published about her in the New York Post in July 2005. According to reports, when Graff saw Hilton and Hilton's then fiance Paris Latsis, who was hooked to Graff, at London's Kabaret nightclub, the socialite went "berserk" and tried to choke Hilton and steal her 4 million dollar diamond necklace.
