Paris And Rep Confirm Split

LATEST: PARIS HILTON's longterm representative ELLIOT MINTZ has confirmed he's parted ways with the socialite - just two days after she was sentenced to a jail term for violating her probation. Hilton, 26, will spend 45 days in a California correctional facility after she was found guilty of violating a probation order and driving with a suspended license in court on Friday (04May07). At her hearing, Hilton told Superior Court Judge Michael Sauer that Mintz had repeatedly informed her that her license had been suspended for only 30 days and that she could still drive for work-related matters. Mintz accepts he was partially responsible for the strict sentence through misinformation, and he's left her employment over the error. He tells People, "The day after the hearing, I sent Paris an email expressing my sadness over the ruling of the judge and the irrational sentence he imposed. "In that email (to Paris) I also offered my sincerest apology for any misunderstanding she received from me regarding the terms of her probation. To the extent that I have miscommunicated information I received from her attorneys... I am deeply and profoundly sorry. "I told her that I assume personal responsibility for my part in this matter. "I believe when Paris stated in court that she believed it was ok, for her to drive under certain circumstances she was being absolutely truthful. Due to this misunderstanding, I am no longer representing Paris." Mintz adds he bears no ill will towards his client, despite rumours he didn't quit of his own accord but was sacked by Hilton: "For the record, I have nothing but love and respect for Paris and her family. Paris is a wonderful person and does not deserve the punishment that was handed down by the court. I only wish her my best."
