(Newser) – Paris Hilton's grandfather, the only family member still bankrolled by the hotel chain, has reportedly put the kibosh on her $60 million inheritance, the Daily Telegraph of Australia says. Long red-faced over his granddaughter’s antics, 79-year-old Barron Hilton was sent over the top by her recent jail sentence and decided to write her out of his will.

Barron Hilton is “extremely embarrassed by how the Hilton name has been sullied by Paris,” says a Hilton historian. He says he intends to donate the proceeds of the sale of his company to charity, but Paris apparently won't want for cash: The Evening Standard reports that she's relaunching her singing career.
