Hilton has been using Twitter to update fans on her trip to the World Cup. According to her Twitter postings, she landed in Johannesburg, South Africa in the morning on July 1.
At approximately 7pm ET, Hilton posted an update about her arrest, with a link to her longer statement that posted on TwitLonger.com, a site that allows a longer “tweet” but is not affiliated with Twitter.
Hey guys, there’s a lot of crazy rumors going around. Just want you all to know the truth. Everything is completely fine. I was not charged or arrested, cause I didn’t do anything. I was assisting the police with the investigation and answering their questions. Everyone was super nice and friendly to me. I love South Africa! Such an amazing place, especially during The World Cup! Hope that clears everything up. Love you guys, thanks for your concern. Xoxo P
So, that’s the huge scoop. Of course, gossip blogger Perez Hilton will make it an even bigger deal than it is, especially if he doesn’t have any recent pictures of Miley Cyrus’ crotch to capture the world’s attention.
