Paris Whitney Hilton (born February 17, 1981 in New York City) is an American socialite, television personality, model, actress and singer. She is the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels.
Born in New York City and raised there and in Beverly Hills, California, Hilton began her modeling career as a teenager when she signed with Donald Trump's agency, T Management. Her lifestyle and rumored short-lived relationships with Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar De La Hoya made her a feature of entertainment news, and Hilton was called "New York's leading It Girl" in 2001. In 2003, a sex tape with Hilton and then-boyfriend Rick Salomon 1 Night in Paris was made public.
Later that year she starred with Nicole Richie in the reality television series The Simple Life, which gave both women international recognition. Hilton later released her autobiography Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose (2004), played a supporting role in the horror film House of Wax (2005) and released her debut album, Paris (2006).
She returned to reality television in Paris Hilton's My New BFF (2008) and its two spin-offs: Paris Hilton's British Best Friend (2009) and Paris Hilton's Dubai BFF (2009). Hilton was a voice actress in the TV movie The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation (2010) and appeared in the reality show The World According to Paris (2011). She had a part in Sofia Coppola's independent film, The Bling Ring (2013).
Critics and admirers have said that Hilton is famous for being famous, exemplifying the celebutante: a celebrity not through talent or work, but through inherited wealth and lifestyle. She has parlayed her media fame into perfumes and a fashion line with her endorsement; her fragrances have reportedly earned $1.5 billion. There are 44 Paris Hilton stores worldwide, with products including perfumes, handbags, watches and footwear.
Hilton earns over $10 million a year from product sales and, as of 2005, was paid about $300,000 for appearances in clubs and events. In early 2008, she was seen with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden and declared her intention to marry him in May 2008. However, they broke up in November that year.
Paris started an on/off relationship with 'The Hills' star Doug Reinhardt in February 2009 but this relationship permanently finished in April 2010. She then dated entrepreneur and nightclub owner Cy Waits until June 2011.
Hilton met boyfriend River Viiperi, 10 years her junior, during New York Fashion Week in September 2012. The couple have been dating since and have hinted at an engagement in the near future.
