Paris Hilton is suing those responsible for letting her think her plane was crashing in a tv prank.
The Hilton hotels heiress and reality star was the victim of a 'joke' by Egyptian tv presenter Ramez Galal, who hosts popular prank show Ramez in Control.
A video of Hilton screaming and crying as she was led to believe her charter plane was crashing in Dubai has been circulating on the internet in recent days.
The 34-year-old DJ is now planning on taking legal action against the presenter and crew for emotional distress, saying she was in mortal fear for her life during the filming.
In the clip, Paris is heard screaming "What is happening? Is this normal?" when she first realises there is something 'wrong' and then later screams "No. Can't we just land?"
According to TMZ, she is also telling friends that it was worse than it appeared on the video, with the plane almost gliding along the water during the stunt.
