Paris Hilton claims she was sexually abused at boarding school

UPDATE DAY

Paris Hilton has claimed she was sexually abused at her Utah boarding school. 

Interviewed by The New York Times, the wealthy heiress recounted the experiences she endured at Provo Canyon School in Utah when she was 17.

The star, now 41, previously detailed some of her traumatic experience at the establishment in her 2020 YouTube documentary, This is Paris. During the interview with the newspaper, she recalled that school staff members were “performing cervical exams” on her and other students.

“Very late at night, it was around three or four in the morning, they were taking me and other girls to this room and they were doing medical examinations,” she said.

She further indicated that the person carrying out the supposed examinations “was not even a doctor”. 

She confided that there were “several different staff members who made us lie down on the table and put their fingers inside us”.

“I don't know what they were doing, but it definitely wasn't a doctor. It was really scary, and it was something that I had really blocked out for many years, she added. But it comes up all the time now, and I think about it. And now, looking back on it as an adult, it was definitely sexual abuse.”

Paris Hilton also detailed her recollection of a cervical exam on Twitter, writing that she had been “forced to lie down on a padded table” and undergo the procedure.

“I cried as they held me down and said, 'No!' They just said, “Shut up. Be quiet. Stop moving.” It's important to talk about these painful times so I can heal and help end this abuse,” Paris Hilton said.
