“Don’t believe everything you read.”

“So there’s this photo online of me — I’m sure you’ve seen it,” Paris began in the clip, showing the photo. “I never wore that shirt. This was completely photoshopped. Everyone thinks it’s real, but that’s not the truth.”
Paris, 40, then showed an image of the tank top she actually wore.
“This is what it really said: ‘Stop Being Desperate,'” she said. “Don’t believe everything you read.”
She captioned the video, “Debunking the #STOPBEINGPOOR myth. 🙅🏼♀️😹 Don’t believe everything you read. 😏”
The photos of Paris in the shirt were taken at a party at the Palms Hotel in Las Vegas back in 2005. While media outlets have previously reported that the photo was doctored, it appears that many fans had no idea and were absolutely shocked by Paris’ revelation.
