On Saturday, Conrad Hilton was arrested at around 4 in the morning after allegedly trying to break into the home of his ex-girlfriend Hunter Salomon’s mother, E.G. Daily, and stealing a Bentley belonging to Hunter’s father, Rick Salomon. We now know a little bit more about what happened, and let’s just say it’s not something Conrad will be putting in the highlight reel of his life.
TMZ has video of the morning 23-year-old Conrad reminded his ex-girlfriend’s family that he’s got some major boundary issues. It’s a mess. Conrad lets loose a slew of homophobic and racial slurs. Conrad accuses a police officer of touching his junk and cries rape. At one point Conrad’s language is bleeped; a police source tells TMZ that that’s where Conrad hissed the N-word. As he gets into the police vehicle, he doubles down on the assholery by screaming: “I’m Conrad motherFUCKING Hilton, don’t you forget it.” Oh, I’m sure they remembered it down to the very last letter as they were booking him into jail.
Just like her mom, Hunter told TMZ she also thinks Conrad needs some help. That’s what his lawyer Robert Shapiro (yes, that Robert Shapiro) is pushing for. TMZ says that Conrad Hilton is still in jail on $60,000 bail. Robert Shapiro tells TMZ that Conrad will appear in court today and they will ask a judge to allow him to leave jail only if he agrees to enter a treatment program that can diagnose what is wrong with him. Robert Shapiro calls Conrad’s behavior “bizarre and unusual“, and adds that he needs help.
To make this situation ever more messed up, a source recently spoke to The Daily Mail and – grab lots of grains of salt for this – they claim Conrad initially pursued a relationship with Hunter as revenge against her dad Rick Salomon. Conrad was 9 when Paris Hilton’s sex tape was released, and the source says Conrad was constantly “bullied and tortured” about it. The source goes on to say that Conrad turned to drugs to deal with the bullying and he blames Rick for his problems.
Conrad Hilton clearly needs help; the sheer possibility that he started dating Hunter for revenge kind of confirms that. But I take umbrage with Robert Shapiro calling Conrad’s behavior bizarre and unusual. Bizarre would lead us to believe it’s a huge shock Conrad would say such gross things, but this isn’t the first time a Hilton got caught saying homophobic and racist garbage on tape. Unusual would imply that pulling some entitled “I’m Conrad Hilton” bullshit is out of character for him, and we all know that’s not true. Robert, it would have been more believable if you had just shrugged and said “I mean…this is bad, even for Conrad Hilton.”
