The Bling Ring, a gang of fashion-obsessed thieves, burgled Paris Hilton’s home several times between 2008 and 2009. It wasn’t until nearly $2 million in jewels, clothing, cash, and other items were stolen from Hilton that she reported being robbed. Netflix is known for its engaging documentaries, and in the most recent episode, one of the robbers complimented the quality of her drugs.
According to Newsweek, the Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist, a new Netflix docuseries, premieres today, revealing fresh insights and exclusive interviews with members of the burglary gang. In typical fashion, these groups became celebrities by stealing from celebrities. The most shocking revelation of the three-part documentary, however, involves an old allegation.
“We found a nice bag of coke one time,” Bling Ring member Nick Norgo (née Prugo) tells director Miles Bladen-Ryall of breaking into Paris Hilton’s home.
Her cokes was like Scarface coke; that was the best coke I’d ever done, just pure. We’re doing Paris Hilton’s coke—who the f**k can say that?
It’s a claim Norgo has made before, and one Hilton has refuted in this film. A disclaimer at the end states, “A representative of Paris Hilton has denied that illicit drugs were found at her home.” It’s still surprising to hear someone who openly stole from her gleefully detail the claimed experience of taking and using her drugs.
Hilton was arrested in 2011 after an officer discovered .8 grams of cocaine in her possession during a traffic check. She was sentenced to probation after pleading guilty to two misdemeanors. Walford explained to the outlet how they decided to include Norgo’s drug revelation about Paris. Norgo has frequently claimed that when he and his friends burgled Paris’ house, they discovered and took a bag of cocaine.
Obviously, that person gets a right to reply. So they get the opportunity to respond to the accusation that has been made. And each case is individual, so you can never have a broad brushstroke with this.… But my understanding also is this wasn’t the first time this has been reported. I do think this has been reported in the press before.
And therefore it makes the balance of the accusation less accusation, if you can say that. But as long as we are getting all of our all of the people that are talking about the right to apply, then legally, that that’s OK. I think if we’re talking about something much more serious, like violent crimes or, you know, domestic abuse of some nature, then you really have to be careful about what you’re allowing in and what you’re allowing out. But in this particular case, it was carefully looked at by the lawyers, and they felt that that comment could be could be allowed to remain in as long as Paris was given a right to reply, which she was.
The first three episodes of The Real Bling Ring: Hollywood Heist are now available on Netflix. Let’s see what else we can find out about Hilton. To get the latest updates, keep an eye on Thirsty.
