Paris Hilton And Scott Storch Continue To Do Nothing Worth Freaking Out Over

We've heard no end to the speculation about Paris Hilton's relationship with the producer of her upcoming album, Scott Storch. It continues today as Radar reports,
Just when Paris Hilton’s engagement to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis had us all believing that fairytales really can come true, sources say the unregenerated wildchild has given in to her baser instincts and taken up with Scott Storch, the hip-hop superproducer behind her upcoming debut album.

Hilton watchers first noticed the unlikely pairing two weeks ago when Storch squired the heiress to the VMAs—with her devoted fiancé nowhere in sight. “They were holding hands the whole time in Miami and were all over each other,” says one observer. But chatter about the celebutante’s straying ways reached fever pitch at this Saturday’s Play Station Portable fashion show in New York.

“Scott showed up with some really cheesy dude and his ditzy girlfriend. He was wearing those tinted wrap-around shades he always has on and a shiny suit, like some extra from Carlito’s Way,” says the source. “All the paparazzi wanted to take his picture because they know he’s her boyfriend[...] Everyone at the afterparty was talking about them being together. He even led the search effort for her cell phone when she lost it after the show”—proving himself the cool-headed yin to her semi-retarded yang.

One fashionista who has seen Hilton together with the hip-hop producer at several events in New York this week couldn’t believe her eyes. “He’s this chubby little Jewish guy who tries to look all menacing and isn’t at all handsome. Grease literally oozes off him.” But Storch, who calls himself “the Meyer Lansky of hip-hop,” and whom Billboard magazine recently called “one of today’s hottest writers and producers,” must have some charms invisible to the naked eye. After all, he dated Lil’ Kim, Hilton’s equally exhibitionist hip-hop soul sister.

Asked about Hilton’s latest accessory, her rep, Bob Zimmerman, said coyly, “Paris and Scott are taking advantage of every public opportunity to create buzz for the album he’s producing.” As for Latsis? “They’re still engaged and Paris is still moving forward with the wedding plans.”

If you want my opinion, there isn't a great deal to this story yet. The whole world is hung up on the idea of Paris Hilton as an insatiable whore, but her history really hasn't lent any credence to that characterization. This Scott Storch business raises eyebrows, but Zimmerman's claim that the two are capitalizing on gossip buzz for the album seems more plausible than Paris Hilton publicly breaking her engagement.

So why post on this story? I'll tell you why - somebody needs to buy this girl a beltclip or holster or something for her celly! For a girl who supposedly spends so much time on her phone, she spends an astonishing amount of time away from her phone. Some would consider items containing topless and/or girl-on-girl make-out self-portraits worth keeping tabs on.
