Paris Hilton has criticised the media for printing "lies" about her relationship with Nicole Richie - insisting recent reports about a feud between the pair are "completely false".
Hilton was rumoured to have fallen out with her socialite pal after moving house to be closer to her boyfriend Benji Madden.
But the hotel heiress insists that although she has left her previous home, she is still living in the same Beverly Hills neighbourhood.
Hilton also denies that Richie - who is dating Madden's twin brother Joel - has opposed the move.
And the star singles out U.S. newspaper the New York Post's PageSix gossip column for particular criticism.
She writes on her Myspace internet page, "Once again, I am blown away by more lies that are going around, and wanted to clear them up with all of you. I'm sick of PageSix and other gossip sites printing completely false stories.
"It's not fair because these lies then spread like wildfire online and people begin to believe they are true. From now on I plan to address these (stories) when they come to my attention - they cross the line between silly tabloid gossip into hateful speculating.
"PageSix reported that I have moved into Benji's neighbourhood, and that Nicole is upset by this…SO NOT TRUE!"
