Paris Hilton has opted to put her troubles behind her by splashing out on some naughty pre-Valentine's Day gifts.

The visibly upset heiress was spotted shopping in Sunset Boulevard boutique Aahs crying and saying "I don't know what to do", according to the Sun.

Among the items Paris dropped in her shopping bag were an edible bikini and thong combo.

But this wasn't enough to stop the socialite, who turns 26 next week, shedding some tears.

A fellow shopper in Los Angeles told the tabloid: "She was going round the shop talking to someone on the phone and crying - she kept wiping her nose with a tissue.

"She picked up an edible bikini set, vibrating Pink tickler and some raunchy Lovehearts.

"She spent about £250 in total on Valentine's Day stuff," the source added.

Earlier this week Paris was criticised by the Austrian media for allowing her recent court appearances to overshadow her invite to the imminent Vienna opera ball.

One such court date centred on an attempt to shut down website ParisExposed, which she claimed had illegally acquired personal items and photos of her.
