It’s not easy being Paris Hilton.
The heiress and reality star rang in her birthday a little early with help from friends and boy toy, Cy Waits.
Hilton turns 30 on Thurs. (Feb. 17) but according to E! News, Hilton threw a “Moulin Rouge” themed soiree on Tues. evening in the Hollywood Hills.
To honor the occasion, TMZ reports that Waits dropped $375,000 on a bright yellow Lexus LFA — a sports car capable of reaching over 200 mph. Not to worry, the speedster unveiling and birthday bash were both documented by cameras to likely be aired on her upcoming Oxygen reality show, “The World According to Paris Hilton,” so we’ll get to see all the action unfold.
Hilton’s beau was by her side the night of her Vegas cocaine arrest and currently faces felony charges, so the coupe definitely seems like a practical purchase to us! We can’t help but wonder why he opted for yellow instead of her signature color, pink?
CRITICAL UPDATE: Okay, so it’s not that critical. Hilton called in to Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show on her birthday to dish about the gift and it turns out the yellow was just a joke.
Apparently he brought the yellow car out first to be funny. Because a yellow sports car would be so horrible, you know? The real gift was actually the same car in white. Excuse us while we go get the oil changed in our lowly Nissan Sentra.
