Paris Hilton was reportedly in on her terrifying plane crash prank the whole time.
Last week, a video of the Hilton hotels heiress began circulating online as she was the 'victim' of a prank by Egyptian tv presenter Ramez Galal, who hosts popular prank show Ramez in Control.
And while she tweeted that she was in the dark about the fact that the ordeal was a joke, TMZ reports that she was paid approximately $1m to take part in the programme.
In the clip, Paris is led to believe the small plane she has boarded is about to crash over Dubai and is screaming and crying hysterically throughout the nine minute bit.
The gossip website have a video of Hilton saying the pilot "went too far", indicating she may have had some knowledge of what was going down - literally - beforehand.
They also got their hands on the document offered to celebrities by the production company, stating: "We will act as if something is going wrong and ask all passengers to jump off the plane!!! Of course everyone will panic, we'll be having skydivers in disguise with us on board."
"We will monitor the funny reactions from our celebrity guest when they fear jumping off the plane.
"Dubai official authorities are monitoring this show and providing us with security. If you want to make sure, you can contact the office of crown prince of Dubai, his majesty Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum. He himself will be supervising the progress of the project."
It's also reported that the DJ wasn't their first choice celebrity.
