Paris Hilton has been warned to ''give up the drugs'' by rocker Rod Stewart after being charged with cocaine possession on Tuesday (31.08.10).
Paris Hilton has been warned to "give up the drugs".
The party-loving socialite - who could face up to four years in prison after being charged with cocaine possession on Tuesday (31.08.10) - has been given a word of advice by rocker Rod Stewart.
The 'Maggie May' hitmaker - whose daughter Kimberley was once a close friend of the heiress - said: "She's a lovely girl. She was friends with Kimberley but I don't think they see each other anymore. I've always found her tremendously polite and very respectful, but, you know, it's time to move on perhaps, give up the drugs.
"There's other things, you don't need them. She's a beautiful girl. We've all done it, but I've never been a druggie sort of person so I've always been against it."
Paris was found with 0.8 grams of the illegal drug in her handbag when she and boyfriend Cy Waits were stopped and searched by police in Las Vegas on Friday night (27.08.10).
Despite his warning, Rod - who announced he is expecting his second child with 39-year-old wife Penny Lancaster last month - admitted he has a liberal attitude towards parenting his seven children.
The 65-year-old singer added to the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "The worst thing you can do as a parent is put your foot down and say no. I think you've got to say, 'I know you want to do it, let's talk about it'. If you say no they're going to do it anyway, so just give them the advice from your experiences and what's happened to your friends and pass it on."
Rod's seven children are Kimberley, 30, and Sean, 29, with his by first wife Alana Hamilton. He also has Ruby, 23, by model Kelly Emberg, Renee, 18, and Liam, 15, by his second wife Rachel Hunter, and four-year-old Alistair with Penny. His eldest daughter, Sarah, was adopted as a youngster.
