Paris Hilton claims she was sexually abused at Utah boarding school for troubled teens

Paris Hilton has detailed the alleged sexual abuse she suffered while attending a Utah boarding school for troubled teenagers in the 1990s.

The reality star, 41, said her childhood was “stolen” by the alleged abuse at Provo Canyon School, where she spent 11 months aged 17 – with Paris claiming she was injured after being forced had been asked to undergo cervical examinations.

Speaking to The New York Times, Paris, who has campaigned for regulation of “problematic youth centers” since she first went public in 2020 with allegations of physical and mental abuse at school, said she had tried to “resolve the reported incidents”. to obscure”.

Paris appeared alongside other young people who had been sent to similar centers as teenagers in a series entitled Can You Punish A Child’s Mental Health Issues?

She said: “Very late at night – it was around three or four in the morning – they took me and other girls to this room and did medical examinations.

‘It wasn’t even with a doctor. It was with a few different employees where they put us on the table and put their fingers inside us. And I don’t know what they were doing, but it definitely wasn’t a doctor, and it was really scary

“It was really scary, and it’s something that I’ve really pushed aside for many years. But it comes back all the time now, and I think about it. And now, looking back as an adult, that was definitely sexual abuse.”

Paris further described the alleged incidents on Twitter, writing: “Sleep deprived and heavily medicated, I didn’t understand what was happening.

“I was forced to lie on a padded table, spread my legs and undergo cervical exams. I cried while they held me and said, “No!” They just said, “Shut up. Be quiet. Stop fighting or you’re going to Obs.”

“It’s important to open up to these painful moments so I can heal and help end this abuse.

“This was a recurring experience, not only for me but for other #survivors as well. I have been hurt and cry as I write this because no one, especially a child, should be sexually abused. My childhood was stolen from me and it kills me that this is still happening to other innocent children.’

DailyMail.com has reached out to school officials for comment.

The teenage treatment center, where a 12-month stay costs up to $300,000, was previously accused of hitting, drugging and sexually abusing its clients.

The socialite first criticized the institution in her 2020 documentary This Is Paris, and successfully pushed for new, tougher regulation of schools for troubled teenagers.

The hotel heiress testified to the Utah legislature in February 2021 that she was “verbally, mentally and physically abused on a daily basis” in Provo Canyon.

“I was cut off from the outside world and deprived of all my human rights. I wasn’t allowed to be myself, express my own opinion or even speak. Without a diagnosis, I was forced to take medication that left me numb and exhausted. I haven’t breathed fresh air or seen the sunlight for 11 months,” she said.

“Children were held at Provo, beaten, thrown against walls, strangled and sexually abused on a regular basis… I was unable to report this because all communications with my family were monitored and censored.

“That was the worst of the worst… There’s no escaping it. You sit in a chair all day and stare at the wall, get yelled at or hit.”

The socialite criticized the institution in her 2020 documentary This Is Paris, successfully pushing for new, tougher regulation of schools for troubled teenagers.

The Times claims the school still faces numerous lawsuits, with more than two dozen people claiming to have been sexually assaulted by a former medical director in one lawsuit that names 49 plaintiffs.

Paris has campaigned for the school to be closed since she made her allegations public.

School opened in August 2021 sued for allegedly “torturing” and “sexually abusing” another student.

Aaron Ross was 13 when he was sent to Provo Canyon School in Utah in 2001, where he claims a staffer forced him to perform oral sex on them a dozen times under threat of starvation, locked him in solitary confinement for weeks and forced him to sit for weeks at a desk facing the wall.

The lawsuit accused the school of “practicing a variety of abuses, including physical, verbal and sexual abuse, chemical stunning and isolation, power labor, use of physical restraints, deprivation of food and sleep, and humiliation, including some of which some of the Geneva Convention banned as too extreme for prisoners of war.’
