Socialite Paris Hilton’s lawyers may take legal action against an author who accused her of making racist comments in an interview.
reports that Hilton hit headlines this week when extracts from Neil Strauss’ book
Everyone Loves You When You’re Dead: Journeys Into Fame and Madness
, emerged online.
The book contains excerpts from an alleged interview with Hilton back in 1999, with Strauss claiming she made controversial comments about her love life.
But a representative for Hilton said the socialite never made the remarks featured in the book and is now consulting her lawyers. “It’s another example of someone making false claims for financial gain,” said Hilton’s spokesperson.
