Paris Hilton's videos to be sold at auction

Hotel heiress Paris Hilton has managed to lose hundreds of videotapes, photographs and secret diaries which are now set to be sold at auction, according to reports.

The party girl – already renowned for the notorious sex tape which ended up on the internet – had apparently put the possessions, which also included computers, clothes and furniture, into storage in LA.

But when the bill for the locker space was allegedly not paid, the company sold its contents.

The agent who is now brokering the resale of the items, David Hans Schmidt, claimed the locker’s contents were “a King Tut’s tomb of scandal”.

He told the New York Daily News an unnamed individual first bought the items for $2,775 (€2,314) at a public auction in December, not even knowing whose they were.

Hilton, who starred in reality TV series The Simple Life, insists the items are rightfully hers and is trying to get them back.

“Monthly invoices were sent to her accountant, and they were paid up,” her spokesman Elliot Mintz told the newspaper.

“Paris is very angry. She’s been victimised. These are private diaries and memories. It’s an awful thing.”
