Paris Hilton says she was 'held down' & 'sexually abused during medical examinations' as a teen at Utah boarding school | The Sun

PARIS Hilton has alleged she was "held down and sexually abused" during medical examinations at a boarding school as a teenager.

In a chilling interview, the heiress claimed that staff at the Provo congregate care facility in Utah, would “perform cervical exams” on her and other students.


The shocking allegations follow the star's claims she was "tortured" and "abused mentally, emotionally and physically," made in her 2020 documentary This Is Paris.

Speaking to the New York Times the reality TV star said she tried for years to "block out" the incidents but looking back as an adult she is certain it was sexual abuse.

She said: "Very late at night, this would be around like 3 or 4 in the morning, they would take myself and other girls into this room and they would perform medical exams.

"This wasn't even with a doctor. It was with a couple of different staff members, where they would have us lay on the table and put their fingers inside of us.

"And I don't know what they were doing, but it was definitely not a doctor and it was really scary.

"It was really scary, and it’s something that I really had blocked out for many years.

"But it’s coming 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 in excruciating detail the alleged abuse on a Twitter post.

She wrote: "Sleep-deprived & heavily medicated, I didn't understand what was happening. 

"I was forced to lie on a padded table, spread my legs & submit to cervical exams.

"I cried while they held me down & said,' No!' They just said, 'Shut up. Be quiet. Stop struggling or you'll go to Obs.'"

"It's important to open up about these painful moments so I can heal & help put an end to this abuse."

The school has been contacted for a comment.

The star first opened up about her time at the controversial boarding school back in 2020 where she spoke about the "childhood trauma"  she suffered during her 11 months as a student there.  

She said at the time: "It was supposed to be a school, but [classes] were not the focus at all.

"From the moment I woke up until I went to bed, it was all day screaming in my face, yelling at me, continuous torture.

"The staff would say terrible things. They were constantly making me feel bad about myself and bullying me."

"I think it was their goal to break us down and they were physically abusive, hitting and strangling us.

"They wanted to instill fear in the kids so we'd be too scared to disobey them. I was having panic attacks and crying every single day."

Paris was sent to the Provo congregate care facility in her later high school years, as her parents Rick and Kathy Hilton tried to reign in her hard-partying behaviour.

She claims she would sneak out to clubs as a teenager and any punishment by her parents – including taking away her phone or credit cards – had no effect.

The star said her parents did not know the treatment she was enduring at the Utah facility as staff would supposedly "rip up letters and end phone calls," telling students that "no one would believe them."

  • Always keep some money on you, including change for a pay phone or bus fare.
  • If you suspect your partner is about to attack you, try to go to a lower-risk area of the house – for example, where there is a way out and access to a telephone.
