New Delhi: American model-actor Paris Hilton has made quite a few shocking revelations in a recent interview with Vanity Fair.

Talking about the time when her ex-boyfriend, Rick Salomon, leaked their sex tape together almost two decades ago, Hilton said she’s still suffering from trauma as a result of that incident. Speaking on the video  which was released without her permission in 2004, Hilton said it is something that will ‘hurt her for the rest of her life’.

“It’s always there in the back of my mind,” she said. “When it happened, people were so mean about it to me. The way that I was spoken about on nightly talk shows and the media, to see things with my family was just heartbreaking. I would be in tears every single day, I didn’t want to leave my house, I felt like my life was over”, Hilton said.

Adding, “It was a private experience between two people. You love someone, you trust someone and to have your trust betrayed like that and for the whole world to be watching and laughing … It was even more hurtful to me to have these people think that I did this on purpose — that killed me … It still gives me post-traumatic stress disorder to talk about it. …”.

”I’m again happy that things have changed and that people are realizing that is just, the woman in the situation who is the victim should not be treated like that or spoken about like that”. Hilton recently discussed the leak in This Is Paris, where she likened the experience of the sex tape to ‘being electronically raped’. Multiple reports suggested that Salomon reportedly made around $10 million from the tape in the first year of its release.

Earlier on February 17, Hilton announced her engagement to entrepreneur Carter Reum.

She captioned her post as, ”When you find your soulmate, you don’t just know it. You feel it. This weekend, Carter dropped to one knee. & I said yes, yes to forever There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with. To see more photos of my birthday dream come true, visit ParisHilton.com”.
