Hilton dumped Barker after catfight
Plus: Nicole Richie has new hair color, new sweetie
Paris Hilton dumped boyfriend Travis Barker after a nasty catfight with an ex, according to a report.
Hilton claims that Shanna Moakler, Barker’s estranged wife, called Hilton a “skinny [bleep]” and punched her in the jaw on Oct. 3 at the hot Los Angeles club Hyde, according to In Touch Weekly.
But Moakler insists that Hilton’s ex-boyfriend, Stavros Niarchos, pushed her down stairs and dumped a drink on her.
Hilton called it quits with Travis the following weekend, explains a “pal,” who told ITW: “Paris realized this was not what she needed in her life right now.”
Nicole moves on
Meanwhile, Paris Hilton’s best-friend-again Nicole Richie has also moved on from her ex-beau, Brody Jenner.
A newly redheaded Richie has a new sweetie, Samuel Plouchart, a fashion editor at the French Magazine Citizen K, according to Us. “New boy, new look,” Richie told the mag.
Jenner told Us that toward the end of their two-month romance, Richie “didn’t treat me like a friend or a boyfriend.” He did, however, care deeply for her, according to a source, who told the mag, “He tried to help her gain weight. When she’d eat a few bites and stop, he’d say, ‘Finish that!’”
