Paris Hilton, who once commanded up to a whopping $750k for promotional club appearances, was paid a comparatively paltry $250k for her attendance at her 32nd birthday party at a nightclub in Lake Tahoe recently, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.
"About five years ago, Paris easily commanded $500-750k for nightclub appearances, which often took place in Vegas, Atlantic City, or Miami," a source tells Radar. "However, that's dropped steeply over time, and she was paid the much lower fee of $250,000 to 'celebrate her birthday' on Saturday night.
"The demand just isn't there anymore for promoters to pay the huge fees of yesteryear. Ever since Paris' arrest for cocaine possession outside the Wynn two years ago, she hasn't commanded the high six figures from any clubs on the Vegas strip, not to mention the fact her star has drastically faded. Can she still get a ridiculous amount of money purely for turning up and partying? Yes. Is it anywhere near as much as she used to get? No, and likely never will be again."
Paris, who donned an impossibly short sequined mini-dress with Pretty Polly garter tights, let loose at the new and impressive Peek nightclub at Harrah’s Casino Lake Tahoe — and proving she’s refusing to slow down with age, she never stopped partying all night long! At one point she bent far forward to touch her fans, some of whom put arms around her and took photos while she was on the stage.
Paris continued to provocatively dance the night away with Viiperi, who lifted her up at one point and was also shooting video of her and the crowd going crazy.
The next day, River landed in the hospital after a frightening fall on the slopes, with Paris accompanying him and tweeting photos of his injury.
Meanwhile, Paris' nemesis, Kim Kardashian continues to command at least $500k for her club appearances.
