Rick Solomon buys Hollywood home with Paris Hilton sex tape money
UPI News Service, 02/17/2005
Videotaping his sex romp with Paris Hilton has earned Rick Solomon $7 million, enough to buy a posh pad in the Hollywood Hills, "Celebrity Justice" reports.
Solomon closed the deal this week after plunking down $3.4 million for the home just down the street from his buddy, "Spiderman" star Tobey Maguire, who helped him pick out the dream digs. The property has a pool, a master bedroom with a shower with a beautiful view and a state-of-the-art media room.
Even though he denied releasing clips of the videotape, "One Night In Paris," that turned up on the Internet, Solomon says the Hilton family is blaming him anyway.
"They're trying to bury me," Solomon said at the time. "They're making me look sleazy."
Porn distributor David Joseph of Red Light District said last year the tape has "sold more copies than any video in the history of porn."
