Her smug mugshot says it all, with a high powered and uber connected Vegas lawyer and a man about town boyfriend, Paris thinks her arrest and subsequent felony charges are all a joke!
Paris Hilton has become just as famous for her run-ins with the law as she has for her variety of business ventures and frequent red carpet antics, but has always managed to dodge any severe repercussions. This all came to an end however on Aug. 27 when the heiress was found with cocaine in her purse after being pulled over and has now been charged with felony cocaine possession. The only problem? She continues to behave as if this is not an issue — in fact, she claims she thought the drugs were gum!
“She had not seen it but now thought it was gum,” said an officer’s report. “She said several cosmetic items inside the purse were not hers.”
HollywoodLife.com spoke with psychiatrist Carole Lieberman, author of the upcoming Bad Girls: Why Men Love Them & How Good Girls Can Learn Their Secrets, who said of Paris’ behavior, “She takes pleasure in flaunting all the rules.”
Dr. Lieberman went on to say, “Paris has never had boundaries set for her – not by her parents and not by the courts. Children who grow up without boundaries need to keep pushing the boundaries in order to get attention and to feel that someone cares.”
That’s not all either, the attention her peers are getting, even if negative, is possibly making her jealous according to Dr. Lieberman. “Paris is jealous of other young Hollywood celebs who have been monopolizing the headlines that once focused more on her – from Lindsay Lohan to Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie. It’s not likely that Paris set out to get arrested, but she has been partying to console herself for not having as much media attention as she would like.”
Paris has taken all measures to soften the blow of her possible consequences. First, she hired high powered Las Vegas attorney David Z. Chesnof, whose former law partner just happens to be Oscar Goodman — the mayor of Las Vegas!
As for her boyfriend, 32-year-old Cy Waits, he is a man about town in Vegas and actually runs Tryst, the highly popular club in the Wynn where Paris was searched — though reports are now saying he has been fired following the incident.
Possession of cocaine in Nevada, regardless of the amount, carries a sentence of 1 – 6 yrs. and a fine of $5,000. No matter how connected Paris may be, that seems like a very tough sentence to get out of.
Perhaps this will finally be the wake up call Paris needs!
