Popular American reality television star Paris Hilton dropped a bomb on social media platform Twitter, revealing she was sexually abused as a teenager at the Provo Canyon School in Utah. Hilton alleged that staff members at the boarding school performed cervical exams on her in a private room in the middle of the night.
“They would have us lay on a table and put their fingers inside of us,” Paris Hilton told the New York Times in a video interview. “I don’t know what they were doing, but it was definitely not a doctor, and it was really scary, and it’s something that I really had blocked out for many years,” she continued.
Hilton also added that as an adult, whenever she looks back to the incident, she comes to realize that it was sexual abuse. She also revealed that when she began to speak about her treatment at the boarding school to her parents, a male staff member informed her that he was taking away her telephone privileges.
“We’re going to tell your parents that you’re manipulating, that you’re lying,” Hilton claimed that the male staff member told her.
The 41-year-old recently revealed that she was sent to the boarding school when she was 17 and was later diagnosed with attention deficit disorder.
Hilton also wrote about her experience at the Utah boarding school on Twitter on Tuesday, October 11.
“At Provo Canyon School, I was woken up in the middle of the night by male staff who ushered me into a private room and performed cervical exams on me in the middle of the night,” she wrote.
Hilton also alleged that she was heavily medicated and deprived of sleep, which was why she did not understand what was happening to her.
“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,” she tweeted.
The model also said that the incident happened several times to her and her schoolmates.
