Hilton, 40, said when she and Spears, 39, got in the car they asked paparazzi about a video in which Lohan claimed Hilton hit her

“At that moment I saw Lindsay approaching us and said ‘Why don’t you just ask her?’ “Hilton remembered” and Lindsay said, “No, Paris would never hit me, I’ve known her since I was 15. It was basically just not admitting what she did. It was kind of awkward to ask that question, and it was was just weird how it all happened “

“All of a sudden I looked over and she’s in my car. We weren’t getting along so I was being polite,” added Hilton. “It was really hard to just get out of there because I couldn’t see with all the cameras”
