Paris Hilton has revealed that she was sexually assaulted by individuals performing cervical exams on female students at Utah’s Provo Canyon School when she studied there.

She claimed that staff members at the Provo Canyon School in Utah would take her and other girls into a room “very late at night.”

“They would have us lay on a table and put their fingers inside of us,” she said in an emotional video interview with the New York Times. “I’m not sure what they were doing, but it was definitely not a doctor, and it was really scary, and it’s something I’d blocked out for many years.”
