Financial meltdown hits Hilton where it hurts

Clubs put the squeeze on Paris appearance fees

Poor Paris Hilton is the latest victim of the financial apocalypse which has ripped across our planet, with London clubs offering the talented amateur porn flick performer as little as £25k a pop to enhance their premises with her magnetic charms.

That's according to the Evening Standard, which says last time Paris popped over to the Smoke, she trousered £70k in “appearance fees” to swan about the capital's prestige venues. On her current visit, however, she's managed to earn just 25 grand.

A source "close" to our Paris explained: “Paris demanded £50,000 from Paper nightclub. They were prepared to pay - but on the condition that she turn up twice, not go anywhere else before or after that evening, and stay for a minimum of two hours. But she didn't want to adhere to all the conditions so the club cancelled her appearance.

“Whisky Mist also refused to pay. The only club that paid her was Movida, and that was an estimated £25,000*. Although it's a lot of money, to Paris's people it's nowhere near as much as she used to be able to command.”

For shame. Ms Hilton is currently in London filming Paris Hilton's My New BFF for MTV, and has been slumming it in a £7,500-a-month Hampstead pad. She recently cooed: "I love it here, I am going to move here permanently. I have already been here for a month and am much, much happier here."

Well, it remains to be seen if Paris can survive on a paltry £25,000 or so a month, but if she does have trouble paying the rent we suggest she moves in with her new chum Katie Price, aka Jordan, who was recently spotted with our fave celebutard. ®

*In case you're wondering just how hard Paris has to work to cop £25,000, she was apparently in Movida for just ten minutes.
