Paris Hilton's Mother's Day Gifts Stolen
Posted on May 17, 2006Paris Hilton had to show up empty-handed to her mother's house on Mother's Day. A bag of expensive gifts she had bought for her mom was stolen as they were being delivered.
In a mess seemingly tailor-made for the mishap-prone heiress, the spoils of a Mother's Day-centric shopping spree were nabbed from outside the estate's gates while being delivered. The party-hopping heiress confirmed the act of thievery to a group of paparazzi while attending a celebratory Mom's Day dinner with her parents and sister Nicky at the Ivy. "Yeah, someone stole it," she said.We don't think there is anyone in Hollywood who has been burgled more than Paris Hilton. She's a veritable magnet for crime. And by the way, "Diamondquest" is a much better name for a game than "Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam," which is just ridiculous.
According to Hilton's spokesman Elliot Mintz, who proved a bit more forthcoming with details, a gift bag containing thousands of dollars worth of Christian Dior shoes, sunglasses, handbags and perfume were taken from outside the home when a delivery man reportedly set down the packages for a brief moment in order to ring the estate's intercom. Mintz claims that when the worker turned their back to buzz up to the home, a passing car pulled over and a passenger snatched the Paris-approved loot. "A fellow just whizzed by and grabbed the package," he told the Associated Press.
Which is unfortunate for The Simple Life star, who, in lieu of logging more precious time on the self-promotional circuit, "spent three or four hours shopping to put together this wonderful collection of things for her mom."
The theft topped off an otherwise equally blunderous week for Hilton, who on Friday attended Los Angeles' Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3 to in-the-know gamers) to announce her new video game. "I'm really excited to have my new videogame, Diamond Quest," she told the crowd. "Thank you all for coming, and you can download the game." The announcement would have served as a suitable—if slightly lackluster—launch for her game, but for one small technicality. Hilton's videogame, as plastered along the walls of the expo hall, is Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam.
