Paris' Boyfriend Cy Waits Not Fired From Job

There's a lot of speculation surrounding the Paris Hilton drug bust this past weekend.

Was the cocaine really Paris'? Did her boyfriend Cy Waits get fired from his position as head of nightclub operations for Wynn and Encore properties? We have your answers.

There are a lot of unanswered questions and theories surrounding the night of the arrest, but sources close to the couple tell Hollyscoop EXCLUSIVELY that contrary to reports, Cy has NOT been fired from his job at Wynn and Encore.

Cy was charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, while Paris was charged with felony drug possession. Paris told police that the .08 grams of cocaine that were found in her purse wasn't hers, claiming she borrowed the purse and was unaware that there was a small bag of cocaine in there. But she later changed her story to say it was actually her purse, but a friend had previously borrowed it. According to Nevada law, if convicted, Paris faces up to four years in jail and a $5,000 fine.

Cy's boss Steve Wynn, owner of Wynn casino and resort, typically has a "zero tolerance policy" when it comes to "brushes with the law," but this is the first time Cy has found himself in this kind of predicament. Despite several media outlets reporting otherwise, our sources tells us he still has his job as head of nightclub operations for Wynn and Encore properties.

Cy spent 13 years building up his portfolio and empire as Vegas nightlife impresario, and it would be tragic if one night with Paris resulted in his downfall. Unlike Hilton, Waits comes from humble beginnings and actually started as a security guard at House of Blues, while his twin brother Jesse bussed tables.

"I started as a security guard at a night club and he started off as a barback and then we kind of just went to different positions, did everything; managed promotions, moved from managing to general manager of clubs until we got the opportunity from Steve Wynn and build Tryst and Drake’s success so it has been a good one for us," Cy told Hollyscoop during the opening of XS nightclub in Vegas back in 2009.

"For someone like Steve to come up is a dream, he is the king of Vegas... he is an amazing guy," he added.

As for Paris, her parents are standing by her and Cy's side and are ready to help them fight to clear their names. Paris has already hired a high-powered Las Vegas attorney. Cy on the other hand is reportedly waiting for Steve Wynn to return to Vegas so he can talk to the board about Cy's fate.
