Billionaire heiress Paris Hilton has revealed in an interview with Glamour magazine that she was drugged and raped at age 15 by an older man in California. According to Hilton, she and her friends met a group of older men at the Westfield Century City mall, who invited them to their home and offered them berry wine sodas to drink.
Although she was not drinking or using drugs at the time, one of the men forced his drink on her, after which she began to feel dizzy and lightheaded. “I don’t know what he put in me; I guess it was a roofie,” she said.
Hilton claims she was robbed of her childhood
The experience led her to spend more than two years in several expensive behavior modification programs, including Provo Canyon School in Utah, where, she says, she was forced to take drugs and subjected to nightly gynecological exams.
“I was a little girl. I feel like my childhood was stolen from me,” Hilton said. This experience influenced her decision, along with that of her husband Carter Reum, to have their newborn son, Phoenix Barron Hilton Hilton Reum, through surrogacy.
In addition, Hilton also spoke about her abortion in her 20s, which she “didn’t want to talk about because there was so much shame around that” at the time. “I was a child and I wasn’t ready for it,” she said.
