Another awful case hit Paris Hilton when a man known for handling deals involving celebrity porn named David Hans Schmidt has intended to make an auction of her private belongings which include diaries and pictures of her in various stages of undress. Schmidt revealed that he was seeking $20 million for the items which he described to consist of 18 diaries recounting Hilton's past sexual dalliances, celebrity encounters and other adventures, also some photos of her at "wild parties" on yachts and in private homes besides her computers, clothing, videos and furniture.
Responding quickly to this matter, Hilton 's publicist, Elliot Mintz, said that the items previously had been locked away in a Los Angeles-area storage locker during a 2004 move and suspected that they "may have been illegally seized", but was not sure exactly how they found their way to Schmidt. "The possibility that many people would be reading her journal is really disquieting," said Mintz as quoted by Reuters. "She's feeling a combination of anger, certainly confusion, and just tremendous sadness."
Concerning the case, Hilton's lawyers have issued a legal action against anyone in possession of the items while approached Schmidt to retrieve the personal diaries and photos of the celebrity heiress on Friday, February 3. "We are in discussions," the broker confirmed to Reuters.
