Paris Hilton Will Reveal Childhood Abuse in Documentary, "This is Paris"

Paris Hilton revealed she'll be revealing past trauma in the upcoming documentary, This is Paris, according to E! News. "No one really knows who I am," Hilton said in a preview she shared on Tuesday night's Jimmy Kimmel Live! "Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it." People reports that Hilton discusses the mental abuse she suffered when she was a teen at a Utah boarding school. Talking to Nikki Glaser, sitting in for Kimmel, she said she's both excited and anxious about the documentary's release. "I'm excited, but I'm also very nervous... because it's things I've never talked about before—really personal and traumatic experiences," she said. "So, to talk about that publicly is obviously very hard." The film was originally supposed to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival in April but those plans were scrapped due to the coronavirus pandemic. In an interview earlier this year, Hilton says the film was a learning experience. "I honestly didn't even know who I was up until this year. So, I really learned a lot about myself through this film." This Is Paris premieres on Hilton's YouTube channel September 14th.
