The heiress to the Hilton hotel empire turns 40 and announces her engagement

Los Angeles / Paris Hilton announced her engagement to businessman Carter Reum on Tuesday, on the day of her 40th birthday and after a year-long relationship in which the heiress of the hotel empire has returned to the media spotlight.

“During the past year, the coronavirus has accelerated many things. As someone who travelled constantly, I had the opportunity to stay home and assess what was important to me, “the star assured People magazine.

This isn’t the first time that Paris Hilton has got engaged, as a couple of years ago she cancelled her wedding plans with Chris Zylka and the American press recalled that she also called off a wedding in 2003, with Jason Shaw, and another one in 2005, with Paris Latsis.

Her new couple has known the family for a long time and has highlighted her “ethics and authenticity” from Hilton after getting to know her more intimately.

Paris Hilton says goodbye to her “character” and renews her brand

The news of the engagement comes on the day that Hilton turns 40, with which she can boast of being a pioneer in the exploited business of “influencer”.

But, after a period in which her popularity has declined, “the first famous for the simple fact of being famous” has renewed her brand to leave behind frivolity, say goodbye to the “character” she played and embrace social causes .

In September of last year, the heiress premiered the documentary “This Is Paris”, a filme of almost two hours that offered a little-known side of her life.

“I travel the world, I visit hotels, discos and shops. Sometimes, I don’t know who I am. I always have a facade of being happy and leading a perfect life. I created a brand and a character and I have been trapped in it ever since, ”she assured.

In this way, she Hilton wanted to dissociate herself from the image carved out of her during years in which she made headlines for sex scandals, alcohol problems and pending matters with the justice for which she was sentenced to prison in 2007.

In the 2000s, she took her first steps as a singer, actress and businesswoman until her popularity fell to a new generation of celebrities more committed to social causes and away from provocative lifestyles.

“I see a lot of people using their platforms to have a voice and make a difference in the things that really matter,” she recently explained.

In the documentary, Hilton revealed that she was taken at the age of 16 to a boarding school in the state of Utah for troubled youth where she was abused, verbally and physically, along with other classmates of hers.

In fact, a few weeks ago she testified in the Capitol of that state while a law was enacted to eradicate abuse in these types of centers.

In that spirit, the star has wanted to adapt to the new times and take advantage of a stage in which the public looks with a new perspective at media icons of the past decade such as Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, former friends of hers who also go through a process image renewal.
