Paris Hilton has defended her new friend Britney Spears' recent behaviour.
The hotel heiress has taken Britney out partying several times since she
filed for divorce from Kevin Federline, but insists the Toxic singer's wild
behaviour doesn't make her a bad mother.
Paris, 25, wrote on her MySpace web page: "Britney loves her kids to death,
and I know for a fact that it truly hurts her when she sees these cruel things
being written about her.
She goes home every night to her babies and partying has not come in the way
of her parenting."
The Simple Life star insists the people who have criticised Britney for going
out and having a good time should be ashamed, and has appealed to them to be
kind to the 25-year-old star.
Paris said: "For people to call out her parenting skills on behalf of her
partying ethics is appalling. Anyone who has called her out on this should
really be ashamed.
"She's young, and if she wants to go out and have some fun, let her. Just
because she does these things does not mean she doesn't care about her children.

to go out and have a good time. But, you do not see people out there calling
them 'bad parents'.
"For the sake of Britney and her kids, be kind." Over the last three weeks
Britney - who is mother to three-month-old Jayden James and 15-month-old Sean
Preston - has frequently been seen leaving Los Angeles nightclubs in the early
hours of the morning.
On four occasions she was photographed wearing short skirts and no underwear.
