Paris Hilton ‘plotting revenge’ against pranksters

US celebrity Paris Hilton will reportedly attempt to sue an Egyptian television show for causing her to fear for her life.

Ms Hilton, who has a fear of flying, is reportedly considering legal action against Ramez in Control after it tricked her into taking an aerial tour of Dubai while being filmed.

Instead of leisurely sight-seeing, the TV crew simulated an impending crash in what turned out to be a stunt plane.

“I really believed the plane was going to crash and we were all going to die,” Hilton posted online after the ordeal.

The show’s host Ramez Galal pretended to panic as other passengers screamed and one jumped from a side door, seemingly parachuting to the ground below.

Tabloid website TMZ, known for its celebrity scoops, first reported the potential court case, citing anonymous sources.

The video that aired on Egyptian TV did not show the full horror of the prank, TMZ reported.

The segment did not disclose that the stunt plane “almost hit the water during the dive”, the source said.
