At least she skips inheritance tax

It’s every heiress’s nightmare come true: Paris Hilton’s rich granddaddy donates 97% of his wealth to charity. I feel kinda sorry for the girl actually, but now she’s got every reason to push on for a follow-up pop album. Let’s just hope she doesn’t try too hard and do a typical sophomoric “rebel-this-is-the-real-me” rock album.

U.S. hotel heiress Paris Hilton’s potential inheritance dramatically diminished after her grandfather Barron Hilton announced plans on Wednesday to donate 97 percent of his $2.3 billion (1.16 billion pounds) fortune to charity.

That wealth includes $1.2 billion Barron Hilton stands to earn from both the recent sale of Hilton Hotels Corp. — started by his father Conrad in 1919 when he bought a small hotel in Cisco, Texas — and pending sale of the world’s biggest casino company, Harrah’s Entertainment Inc.
