Paris Hilton may have a feud going with someone who isn’t best-known for nightclubbing: her former lawyer.
The ex-jailbird heiress is “furious” with a lawyer, who represented her in her DUI case, says a source close to the Hilton family, who claims that her camp is looking into possible legal action against him.
“The way this case was handled was a disaster,” the insider says. “Nobody goes to jail for DUI that long. It was all the lawyer’s fault and we’re looking into what recourse we have.” The source says legal action may be in the future.
Hilton's rep denies the story, saying "There is no truth to this item."

How many children does Madonna plan to adopt?
That’s what some were asking when the singer plunked down $12 million for a new house adjacent to the one she already owns in London. The buzz is that she plans to connect the two, giving her a whopping eighteen bedrooms.
There’s also word that Madonna may let Kabbalah leaders use her new townhouse for religious meetings, as she has done with two of her other London properties. Madonna now owns six properties in the British capital.
“She’s a shrewd real estate investor,” says a source. “She may be spiritual as of late, but she’s also still the Material Girl.”
