TMZ reported that “Paris had no trouble clearing customs in Van Nuys, CA,” after her failed trip to Japan.
Our crack team at RumorFix started wondering “Did the U.S. Customs Department make a special trip to Van Nuys just for Paris Hilton?”
Here’s what we found out:
- “We don’t have a federal inspection area at Van Nuys,” says Jaime Diaz with the Customs Dept.
- “They [Paris' private jet] had to go to another international airport before landing,” says Diana Sanchez with Van Nuys Airport
- “We don’t make exceptions,” says Sanchez.
It’s refreshing to know that Paris is treated like the rest of us– and that TMZ is wrong again!
