Paris Hilton is seeking support from her Simple Life co-star Nicole Richie as she awaits a court hearing next month.
Paris has been accused of driving while banned and could spend 90 days in jail when she visits court next month.
A source told the Daily Star, "Nicole knows exactly what Paris is going through. Nicole was arrested for driving the wrong way on an eight-lane highway last year and then spent time in rehab. She is one of many of Paris's pals who are doing everything they can to cheer her up."
Paris was banned from driving following a drink-related reckless driving offence in September, but allegedly she was spotted driving last month.
Her spokesman claims that Paris was not aware that her licence had been suspended.
