Paris Hilton has revealed how she endured sexual abuse when she was sent to ‘tough love’ boarding schools as a teenager.
The heiress to the £11.6 billion Hilton hotels empire writes in her memoir that she suffered the ordeals when her parents sent her to boarding schools for troubled youths in a bid to tame her rebellious behaviour.
At one of the schools, Provo Canyon School in the US state of Utah, Paris said she was sometimes drugged before being molested.
‘I swallowed the pills and stared at the wall with the flawless mask of a runway model,’ she writes in an excerpt published yesterday in The Times.
‘Whatever they were giving me made me feel like my head was disconnected from my body.

‘That scared me, so I tucked the capsules inside my lower lip and waited for an opportunity to spit them out.
‘The staff at Provo had their favourites. Always pretty girls. But I don’t think it was about pretty.
‘I think these were weak people in the outside world, men and women who got off on the power they had over us.
‘They took us to the infirmary and made us lie on the table. Made us open our legs for their stubby fingers. If we resisted, there was always a tray with syringes.
‘I don’t know what was in the ‘booty juice’, but I saw kids hit the floor the moment it was injected.’

At another school she recalls being awoken in the middle of the night, manhandled and then handcuffed when workers at the school arrived to take her away.
‘I was sound asleep at about 4.30 in the morning when my bedroom door crashed open.
‘A thick hand grabbed my ankle and dragged me off the mattress. I was instantly awake – hyperawake – in a state of panic. I’m about to be raped. I’m about to be murdered.
‘One man clamped a sweaty palm over my mouth, wrenching my head back. The other held up a pair of handcuffs.’
Hilton grew up living in New York’s Waldorf Astoria Hotel with her parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, and her younger siblings, Nicky, Barron and Conrad.
Her parents sent her to ‘therapeutic’ boarding schools run by a company called CEDU when she was 15 after their attempts to discipline her for sneaking out to nightclubs failed.
She attended four different CEDU establishments before leaving aged 18.
She never told her parents about any of the abuse at the schools – saying staff threatened that she would never be able to leave if she did.
After graduating from the second school, Paris said her parents forced her to go to a third.
She writes: ‘I graduated, and my parents came to get me. Dad was crisp and well-groomed, as he always is. Mom smelled like a lavender patch in God’s backyard.
‘When she brought up the topic of yet another CEDU programme, I begged: ‘Mom, please, please, please take me home.’

The socialite escaped from her third boarding school and lived under a pseudonym with a friend in New York using makeup and a new wardrobe as a disguise.
‘I created a character named Amber Taylor, because of Amber Valletta and Niki Taylor [both American models],’ she writes.
‘I scrounged thrift stores. Amber wore black, mostly. Baggy skater clothes. Amber was more than a disguise; Amber was a totally different person.’
She was sent to the fourth CEDU school when her parents finally tracked her down.
In 2020 Paris led a protest calling for Provo Canyon to be shut down.
Several hundred others attended the demo, with many sharing stories of abuse they say they suffered there or at similar schools.
In October 2021, Hilton also attended a Washington DC event calling for reform in child care facilities.
Paris rose to fame in her early 20s thanks to her starring role alongside fellow socialite Nicole Richie in hit TV series The Simple Life, which saw the pair take on jobs such as serving in fast-food restaurants.
She then started modelling after signing with former US president Donald Trump’s agency, T Management.
Her notoriety reached another level when a sex tape featuring her and boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked in 2004.
In a statement on its website in 2020, officials at Provo Canyon school said the institution was under different ownership prior to 2000, and ‘therefore cannot comment on the operations or patient experience prior to that time’.
