Paris Hilton Describes Sex Tape Leak Experience As 'Like Being Raped'

Paris Hilton 'wanted to die' after her sex tape was leaked: 'It was like being raped'

"It was like being raped", she stated in one interview, according to USA Today. It felt like I'd lost part of my soul and been talked about in such cruel and mean ways, ' she recalled. "I think the only definite thing is that we want to keep it in LA to have family there". I was like, "I just don't want to live". "I didn't want it to be associated with me". Her social media empire is one of many highlighted in The American Meme, which premiered at the 2018 Tribeca Film Festival this past weekend.

The 37-year-old socialite has opened about the moment she found out it was online, claiming she "wanted to die".

She certainly didn't let the sex tape affect her professionally, as she went on to release a book, star in several reality TV shows, appear in a bunch of movies, produce fragrances (which are the second highest selling celebrity fragrances of all time, behind Liz Taylor's) and launch a semi-successful DJ career.

In an upcoming documentary "The American Meme," the hotel heiress will talk for the first time about THAT video.

"It's hard because I'll have to live with that for the rest of my life and explain it to my children", she said.

"I don't do drugs, I hardly drink, I've never committed a crime - and yet I'm a bad role model for being proud of my body?"

The sex tape was released just when reality TV series The Simple Life debuted, starring Paris and then best friend Nicole Ritchie, and naturally, a full-on media circus ensued.

"I shouldn't have to constantly be on the defense, listing off my accomplishments just to prove that I am more than something that happened 13 years ago", she shared.

She told GQ in 2006: 'I never received a dime from the video.

"It was like being raped", she says in the documentary. Hilton counter-sued and they settled out of court. "I am empowered by showing the world my flaws and not being afraid of what anyone is going to say about me".

The director for The American Meme praised Hilton for her candour.

Hilton recently got engaged to actor Chris Zylka at the start of New Year, and refers to her fiance as "the man of my dreams who I know will never hurt me or betray me". "Because yes, this is so much fun - I love what I'm doing, it's great being in Ibiza every summer DJing until eight in the morning - but sometimes it gets a little tiring".
