The Turbulent Pasts of Paris Hilton’s Brothers, Barron and Conrad


Paris Hilton’s brothers, Barron Hilton II and Conrad Hughes Hilton, while not as prominent in the public eye as their sisters, have had their fair share of legal issues contrasting their sisters’ more reserved public personas.

Barron Hilton II encountered legal trouble in 2008 when, at the age of 18, he was arrested for drunk driving while using a fake license. The situation escalated as he also injured a gas station employee during the incident. Despite attempts from his friends to bail him out, his parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, reportedly refused to do so. Subsequently, Barron faced severe consequences: his driver’s license was revoked for a year, and he was placed on probation until 2011, in addition to undergoing alcohol education. Moreover, he had to pay restitution to the injured employee. The legal battle continued when the injured employee filed a civil case against Barron, settling for $3.5 million after the initial payment of $3,215.

Following these events, Barron appears to have chosen a path of rehabilitation and compliance with the law, opting for a more responsible lifestyle.


Conrad Hughes Hilton’s issues with the law began in 2014 when, at 20 years old, he exhibited disruptive behavior on a British Airways flight from London to Los Angeles. His behavior involved verbal abuse towards passengers and crew, accompanied by claims that he would “own” everyone on the flight and bragging about his family’s wealth covering his actions. Upon arrival in Los Angeles, Conrad was met by law enforcement and faced legal repercussions. Subsequently, he was sentenced to three years of probation, which he violated after one year through drug use.

Conrad’s legal woes continued with instances of reckless driving causing accidents, breaking into his ex-girlfriend’s home, violating a restraining order against him, and stealing her father’s car. These incidents led to his sentencing to a psychiatric hospital and later probation.
