Paris Hilton and a group of friends were detained in South Africa on suspicion of marijuana last week. But, Paris and her team say that the socialite was not at fault.
According to a statement from Paris’ rep via Gossip Cop, the whole situation was a “misunderstanding…It was actually another person in the group who did it.”
Lucky for the Hilton heiress, “The case has been dropped against Paris and no charges will be made.”
The 29-year-old claims, “I had nothing to do with it,” referring her temporary arrest in Port Elizabeth after a World Cup match.
Paris even took to Twitter to reiterate her innocence in the matter.
“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."

Although Paris is enjoying her vacation now, she says that she is used to getting the blame in situations such as this one.
“It was absolutely ridiculous what I was put through for nothing. But I'm used to being scape goat,” Paris wrote on her official Twitter.
Regardless of her troubles, the heiress is off the hook. Alls well that ends well for Paris in South Africa!
