Paris Hilton has dismissed reports she was recently attacked by a disgruntled reveller at a Los Angeles club, and believes the rumours were started to garner more publicity for the nightspot.
The socialite was allegedly punched in the face while making an appearance at L.A.'s Coco de Ville nightclub on Tuesday (08Jul08), leaving her with a large bruise on her cheek.
But the hotel heiress insists the rumours are totally false, and believes she is part of a ploy to get the club in the press.
She tells E! News, "I had a great time last night and didn't even have an argument with anyone. I don't know where they come up with this stuff. It's a completely made-up story.
"(It was made up) Maybe (for) publicity for the club. It was my first time there, so I think someone just put that story out there so the place would get a bunch of press."
