Paris Hilton said to be 'in on Dubai plane prank'

TMZ claims to have seen a document proving she was offered large sums of money to take part in the TV hoax

Paris Hilton said to be 'in on Dubai plane prank'

Paris Hilton knew about the Dubai plane crash scare she was involved in recently and was “playing along” with the hoax, it has been claimed.

The 34-year-old heiress was reported to be considering legal action against the production company behind a televised prank in which she was can be seen fearing for her life on board an aircraft apparently plummeting to the ground.

However, entertainment news site TMZ now claims to have obtained a document prepared by Ramez In Control, a prank show hosted by Egyptian actor Ramez Galal and broadcast by cable TV network MBC. 

The document reportedly shows Hilton was offered a considerable amount of money to participate in the scam, with sources placing the fee as high as $1 million. The report also claimed Hilton was not the show’s first choice of celebrity guest.

The document states: “We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we’ll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board.

“We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane."

In the episode, Hilton was invited for an aerial tour of the city in a Sky Dubai-branded plane alongside Galal and other passengers, during a visit to Dubai for the opening of a new hotel.

But the aircraft begins to lurch violently a few minutes after takeoff, several passengers appear to be jumping out of the plane, and Paris can be seen screaming and crying with fear before it finally lands safely.

In an informal interview with TMZ on Wednesday, Hilton said she thought the stunt pilot had “taken it too far”, further prompting speculation that she had known about what was going to happen and her terrified response was an act.

all celebrities are actors? Like Stephen Hawking, Donna Karan, Gordon Ramsay? She is a horrible actress when she tries and this guy should be sued for a tasteless prank that causes long term psychosis. I'd be devestated for life as I already have a flying phobia. What if she was buried alive for a prank? Would that be funnier? These shock gags need to be reined in. Bottom feeder humor.

If actually it is a scripted PRANK show, then what good is the show? Good thing this has happened and now we know we are wasting our time watching the show in the first place.
