Gone are the days when Paris Hilton dominated the business of celebrity scandals (oh, 2007, how I miss you), but her younger brother has gleefully taken up that cause. Conrad Hilton III was just put on probation last week after escaping 20 years in prison for threatening flight attendants and passengers on an international flight.
A little thing like probation isn't enough to keep a Hilton down, however, as TMZ is reporting that Conrad was arrested last night for breaking into the home of his ex-girlfriend. But this story is much more bizarre and upsetting than a misguided jilted lover and even has a unexpected connection to that infamous sex tape, 1 Night in Paris.
Conrad illegally entered the home of Hunter Salomon, who allegedly dated Conrad years ago and even got a restraining order against him. Hunter claims that he showed obsessive and frightening behavior following their split, even threatening to commit suicide at one point.
Making things even more convoluted, Hunter is the daughter of Rick Salomon, the man who "starred" with Paris in the sex tape that came out ten years ago. Hunter's mother is E.G. Daily, better known as the voice of Buttercup in The Powerpuff Girls and Tommy in Rugrats.
At the time of TMZ's report, Conrad was still in custody. We'll have to wait and see what kind of consequences he will face. Though the mega rich families have a reputation for lawyering up and escaping any prison time, he was in violation of his probation and a restraining order. That sounds legitimately serious, but with California's overcrowded prisons, it might just be another case of a slap on the wrist.
