Grandpa Hilton Gives Away Paris' Fortune

Paris Hilton might actually have to, gasp!, work for some money at some point in her life. I can only imagine the thoughts running through Paris' mind, when she heard the news that her grandfather, Barron Hilton, announced plans to donate 97 percent of his $2.3 billion fortune to charity. Ha! Sources say that Paris' granddaddy is not exactly happy with the social image the sex-tape queen has portrayed over the years -- which may or may not have contributed to his decision to diminish her inheritance by a boatload. The fortune, which is estimated today at $2.3 billion, will be used to support projects that provide clean water in Africa, education for blind children, and for housing for the mentally ill -- which actually may include Paris, when she loses her mind from the thought of, horror of horrors, a budget.
