Did Paris Gamble Away Her Bentley?
Posted on April 25, 2006We're hearing conflicting reports over Paris Hilton's recent gambling spree in which allegedly she lost her $150,000 Bentley in a poker game. But her rep says it's not true. The Scoop reports:
The partying heiress is apparently a poker aficionado, and says she always wins the game in Vegas. But the buzz is that she doesn’t always win — and actually lost her beloved Bentley — valued at over $150,000 — in a recent game, according to various reports. But now an online poker company is offering Hilton a chance to win a new Bently. "If she goes heads-up online in a no-limit Texas Hold'em challenge against poker legend Mike Sexton and wins we’ll hand her the keys to a brand spanking new Bentley," PartyPoker.com spokesman Warren Lush told the Hamilton Spectator. "Forget one night in Paris, we're offering her one night to win her wheels back."So is her Bentley really in her garage? No one's seen her driving it since the infamous poker game and other rumors say she's a compulsive gambler. Or the whole thing could just be a publicity stunt, because if there's one thing that Paris Hilton needs it's more bad publicity.
But Lush may be overplaying his hand. Hilton’s rep admits that his client "does enjoy poker" — but he adds, "Her Bentley is in her garage."
