A key figure in the American jet-set, the heiress of the Hilton hotel chain, Paris Hilton, was born on February 17, 1981, in New York City. She spent her childhood in California where she attended one of the most prestigious schools with her sister and childhood friend Nicole Richie.

She started modeling and signed at the age of 19 with the agency T Management. She then appeared in advertising campaigns: Guess, Tommy Hilfiger, Iceberg Vodka, Christian Dior and Puma. Then she launched into the television adventure when the broadcaster FOX offered her to co-host a reality show with her best friend Nicole Richie. The Simple life, in which the two young jet-setters have to put up with living for a while with a family in the countryside, is a great success. But Paris Hilton’s greatest breakthrough came in 2004 with the release of the video 1 Night in Paris, a sex tape of her frolicking with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon. Hilton sued, won, and paid half of the damages (a total of $400,000) to charity.

Since then, the jet-setter has become the subject of daily attention in the tabloids. According to Forbes magazine, she was even the world’s most media-exposed person in 2006, which is why her fortune (estimated at $7 million in 2006) continues to grow. In September 2006 she was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and sentenced to 36 months probation and a fine of 1500 euros, a sentence that she aggravated by being caught again a few months later at the wheel of her Bentley while speeding. Sentenced this time to 45 days in prison, many people enjoy the prison adventure of the young lady known for her whims. She is released from prison for good behavior after 23 days of incarceration.

Paris Hilton tries her hand at cinema and appears in a few films such as La Maison de Cire (which earned her the Teen Choice Awards in 2005, and the Razzie Awards for the worst supporting role in 2006), The Hottie & The Nottie (2008)… In 2008, she takes part in a new reality TV series aimed at finding her a new “best friend”, having fallen out with Nicole Richie.

On the heart side, Paris Hilton frequented model Jason Shaw from 2001 to 2003. In 2010, she is on the arm of club owner Cy Waits. But the romance turns short after a year. After several conquests, it is on the arm of Italian footballer Mario Balotelli that the beautiful appears in July 2012. In May 2015, she meets businessman Thomas Gross, but the couple separates after a year. At the end of December 2017, after several months of relationship, Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka got engaged during a stay in Aspen. But in November 2018 the couple separated. Since December 2019, she shares the life of Carter Reum, an entrepreneur.
