LATEST: Paris Hilton's ex-lover Rick Solomon has hit out at the hotel heiress and her family, accusing them of threatening his friends.

The TV producer claims the Hiltons have attempted to "coerce and threaten" witnesses who plan to testify on his behalf in a possible defamation case.

Those threatened include Solomon's old friend DON THRASHER, who sold a video featured Solomon and Hilton having sex.

The video sparked a furious war of words between the hotel family and the producer, after they claimed their socialite daughter was drunk on the sex tape.

Solomon's latest court papers accuse the Hiltons of deceiving the public into thinking Paris is "as pure as snow".
