Paris Hilton Says She Was ‘Pressured’ Into Making 2003 Sex Tape & Feels She Was ‘Electronically Raped’
Paris Hilton is showing that she’s not afraid to be open and vulnerable. In a recent interview, the 39-year-old socialite got candid about her life and spoke on her infamous sex tape that was released in the early 2000s. Paris Hilton shared that she felt pressured into making the tape with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon. She said,
“It was my first real relationship. 18. I was so in love with him and I wanted to make him happy.”
“And I just remember him pulling out the camera. And he was kind of pressuring me into it. It was like being electronically raped.”
Following their breakup in 2004, Rick Salomon sold the sex tape and it was distributed with the title 1 Night In Paris.
Paris Hilton also spoke on the backlash she received following the release of the sex tape.
“That was a private moment of a teenage girl, not in her right head space, but everyone was watching it and laughing like it’s something funny.”
“If that happened today, it would not be the same story at all, but they made me the bad person. I did something bad…I was just so lost and desperate for love that I found the worst possible person.”
“I think a lot of young girls – especially when you’re in a relationship – just want that love so bad and you trust that they’re going to keep something private, but you never know what’s going to happen, because people change, and some guys are not good people.”
As previously reported, Paris Hilton also recently shared that the abuse she endured at boarding school led her to believe being in an abusive relationship is okay. She shared,
“I was strangled, I was hit, I was grabbed aggressively. I put up with things no one should.”
“I had become so used to [abusive behavior] at Provo, that it made me feel like it was normal. They all seemed like such nice guys and then the true colors would show. They’d get jealous, or defensive or try to control me. And there would come a point where they would become physically, verbally, and emotionally abusive.”
In her upcoming YouTube documentary called This Is Paris, Paris Hilton talks about her sex tape, the abuse that took place while she was at boarding school, and other traumatic events that occurred in her life. This Is Paris will be available on September 14th.
