Topless pictures of Paris Hilton in a lesbian clinch have been posted on the internet after hoaxers hacked into her mobile phone account last weekend. The hotel heiress said she was furious after raunchy snaps of her canoodling with MTV host Eglantina Zingg taken on her cell phone were published - but denied the intimate canoodling was anything more than horseplay. She said: "I can't believe it - it's a terrible invasion of privacy. "Eglantina and I were joking around. It wasn't sexual."

Meanwhile, the 'Simple Life' has issued an apology to hundreds of friends who were bombarded with phone calls after her mobile phone address book was also posted on the internet last week. The blonde babe told American magazine US weekly that she deeply regretted any of the distress caused to close pals including Christina Aguilera, rap star Eminem and teen actress Lindsay Lohan, after hackers published a list of her personal contacts. She said: "I want to apologize to all my friends and family,I don't know why this stuff always happens to me, but I wish it wouldn't anymore. It's too upsetting for me . I feel horrible that, once again, someone has invaded my privacy."
