Paris Hilton is widely admired for her lifestyle and appearance, having risen to prominence in the 2000s and remaining in the public eye ever since. Hilton also had a very difficult life growing up. In fact, Hilton recently accused her eighth-grade teacher of grooming and kissing her.
Paris Hilton has recently disclosed that an eighth-grade teacher had groomed and “kissed” her, and it has taken her many years to perceive herself as a “victim.”
In “Paris: The Memoir,” published Tuesday, Paris Hilton recalled a “handsome young” instructor she nicknamed “Mr. Abercrombie” telling her that he had a “crush” on her. According to Hilton, who was a young teenager at the time, the teacher gave her his phone number and requested that she keep their contact confidential.
“Mr. Abercrombie called me almost every night, and we talked for hours about how amazingly mature, beautiful and intelligent I was, how sensual, misunderstood and special.”
Paris alleged that the teacher even compared their age difference to that of Princess Diana and Prince Charles. She further claimed that he reminded her that Priscilla Presley was 14 when Elvis Presley “fell in love with her.”
The “Simple Life” star added that Mr. Abercrombie made a secret visit to her home when her parents, Kathy Hilton and Rick Hilton, were away. Paris described that the teacher had pulled her into his arms and kissed her.
She recounted her parents discovering them in his car when they returned home. After the incident, her parents sent her to France to live with her grandmother that summer. Paris admits that it took her many years to confront the inappropriate relationship emotionally and mentally.
”Teacher pulled me into his arms and kissed me. It took decades for me to actually speak the word pedophile. Casting him in the role of child molester meant casting myself in the role of victim, and I just couldn’t go there.”
Paris Hilton also recently recalled the time she was drugged and assaulted at the age of 15. It is truly unfortunate that Paris Hilton had to go through these traumatic experiences at such a young age.
It takes a lot of courage to open up about such personal and painful incidents, and it is important for people to be aware of the prevalence of sexual assault and harassment. We hope her story will encourage other people with similar experiences to speak up.
