Paris Hilton is a socialite, reality television star, entrepreneur, deejay, and heir to the Hilton hotel chain. Hilton descends from hotel magnate Conrad Hilton, who was her great-grandfather. She was born on February 17, 1981 in New York City to parents Kathy and Richard. She and her three siblings – sister Nicky and brothers Barron and Conrad – were raised in Los Angeles. Hilton is the niece of “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” stars Kyle and Kim Richards. It wasn’t her wealthy family that made Hilton tabloid fodder, but her sex tape with Rick Salomon titled “1 Night in Paris,” which leaked in 2003. Her newfound notoriety landed her a reality show, “The Simple Life” with Nicole Richie. She continued her career in reality TV on “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF” and “The World According to Paris.” Hilton infamously spent a portion of her 45 day sentence in jail for a probation violation in 2007. In 2010, the starlet pleaded no contest to misdemeanor cocaine possession in Las Vegas after a small bag containing cocaine fell out of her purse when her then-boyfriend Cy Waits was pulled over for DUI. She was sentenced to one year probation, 200 hours of community service, and fined ,000. She also was ordered to partake in a substance abuse program. The blonde bombshell almost always has a hunky guy on her arm, including Backstreet Boy Nick Carter. She’s never been married, but has had broken engagements to Jason Shaw and Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis. As of 2017, Hilton is dating “The Leftovers” actor Chris Zylka. These days, Paris Hilton is more than a name, but a brand with fragrances and a whole lot more. She also jet sets as a DJ, spinning records at the hottest nightclubs around the world.
