Less people want her...
Radar Online reports that Paris Hilton's appearance fees appear to be dropping. She once brought in $750,000 for promotional club appearances and was recently paid $250,000 for her 32nd birthday party at a nightclub in Lake Tahoe.
A source said: "About five years ago, Paris easily commanded $500-750k for nightclub appearances, which often took place in Vegas, Atlantic City, or Miami. However, that's dropped steeply over time, and she was paid the much lower fee of $250,000 to ‘celebrate her birthday' on Saturday night. The demand just isn't there anymore for promoters to pay the huge fees of yesteryear. Ever since Paris' arrest for cocaine possession outside the Wynn two years ago, she hasn't commanded the high six figures from any clubs on the Vegas strip, not to mention the fact her star has drastically faded. Can she still get a ridiculous amount of money purely for turning up and partying? Yes. Is it anywhere near as much as she used to get? No, and likely never will be again."
She was recently photographed celebrating the birthday with her parents and 21-year-old boyfriend River Viiperi. She was at the Peek nightclub at Harrah's Casino Lake Tahoe. She partied all night long and had photos taken with fans. She then danced provacatively with Viiperi, who lifted her up and shot video of her to an excited crowd. The next day, Viiperi went to the hospital after falling on the slopes. Hilton went with him and tweeted photos of the injury.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian still makes at least $500,000 for club appearances.
