Paris Hilton turned down an event for none other than President Joe Biden to attend Britney Spears’ wedding.
So it’ll come as no surprise that when the 40-year-old 'Toxic' singer tied the knot with her 28-year-old partner, Sam Asghari, last Thursday (June 9), Paris was there cheering her on.
But what is surprising is that the star turned down a highly prestigious gig just so she could be there for her pal.
Speaking on a recent episode of her This is Paris podcast, she said: “Hey everyone, I just got home and I was on my Twitter and saw there were tons of messages since I got photographed going into an event tonight.
“I was keeping it top secret all week, literally I did not tell anyone.”
She continued: “I was actually asked to DJ for the President and all of the other Presidents from around the world for the dinner, but this was more important to me.”
It appears she’s referring to the ninth Summit of the Americas, a multi-day event in which Biden welcomed various world leaders to discuss the region’s shared challenges and opportunities.
This year it ran from June 6 to 10, including the night of Brit’s wedding, something Paris said she was ‘not going to go into any details’ about as ‘it was the Princess Bride’s night’ and ‘that’s her story to tell’.
“All I can say is I am just so incredibly happy for her,” she added. “She looked stunning and it made me so happy to see that she found her fairytale.”
The longtime friends have both been through some major life events in recent years, with Paris opening up about the abuse she suffered at a youth treatment facility for troubled teens.
Since her 2020 documentary This is Paris, the businesswoman has advocated for fellow survivors of the troubled teen industry and urged decision-makers to tighten up laws in order to put an end to these institutions.
Britney, meanwhile, attended a hearing last year over her 13-year-long conservatorship where she detailed how aspects of her personal and professional life were tightly controlled by her father and others.
In November 2021, LA County Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny ruled the controversial arrangement should be terminated and she’s since been free to do all manner of things she was unable to for all those years.
