Paris Hilton kyboshes ParisExposed.com

Demure heiress in dignity triumph

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Prodigiously talented heiress Paris Hilton has won her battle to take down a website which was hawking a selection of videos, pictures and personal data she left in a forgotten storage facility.

A federal judge granted an injunction against the owner of ParisExposed.com

Hilton's spokesman Elliott Mintz told Associated Press: "I know what this has done personally and emotionally to Paris."

In a statement on Sunday, Hilton said: "I'm mortified that someone would try to profit by exploiting personal details about me on the Internet, especially when it comes to my sexuality."

The News of the World reports on one of the ParisExposed videos meanwhile, she said: "I get ****ed in the **** for coke."

The site's owner Bardia Persa, who reportedly paid $10m for the stash, is due in court on February 16 to contest the injunction.

Fortunately for enterprising fans of the parfumiere, reggae-lite songstress, and all-round pop culture phenomenon, much of the NSFW material remained available in the seemier recesses of the web on Monday.

Mintz said: "As far as I'm concerned, this is the most disturbing intrusion upon the privacy of a public figure that I've ever witnessed."

A disturbing intrusion indeed; though he may not have seen her previous internet hit One Night in Paris. ®
