PARIS Hilton claims she was “tortured” and “bullied” at a Utah boarding school after her parents sent her there in an effort to control her teenage behavior.
The socialite’s documentary, This is Paris, is set to air on her YouTube channel on September 14.
Here is more about Paris Hilton and the claims she made.
What did Paris Hilton say in her new documentary This is Paris?
Paris spoke to People and opened up about her time at Provo Canyon boarding school in Utah and her experience of allegedly suffering years of violence.
In the interview, she mentioned that her parents sent her away when they realized they could no longer manage her behavior as a teenager.
Paris claims her parents did not know the treatment she was enduring as staff would reportedly rip up letters and end phone calls, telling students that "no one would believe them."
“It was supposed to be a school, but [classes] were not the focus at all," she told the publication.
"From the moment I woke up until I went to bed, it was all day screaming in my face, yelling at me, continuous torture."
She claimed: "The staff would say terrible things. They were constantly making me feel bad about myself and bully 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."
Paris alleged that the boarding school staff used solitary confinement for up to 20 hours a day.
"You couldn't trust anyone," she said, admitting she cried every day and battled panic attacks.
Provo could not provide a comment about Paris' claims as they issued a statement to People saying: “Originally opened in 1971, Provo Canyon School was sold by its previous ownership in August 2000. We therefore cannot comment on the operations or patient experience prior to this time.”)
Where did Paris Hilton go to high school?
Paris spent her freshman year of high school in 1995 at the Marywood-Palm Valley School in Rancho Mirage, California.
At 15, she changed schools and began attending the Professional Children's School in New York City.
She grew up in the Waldorf Astoria Hotel with her parents, Rick and Kathy Hilton, and younger siblings: Nicky, 36, Barron, 30, and Conrad, 26.
Paris 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.
In an effort to control her behavior, she was sent by her parents to complete high school at the Provo Canyon School.
She left Provo when she turned 18-years-old and then attended the Dwight School before dropping out a few months later.
How can I watch the documentary and when will it be released?
The documentary will be released in Paris’ YouTube channel on September 14.
She released a clip from the documentary to her Instagram page, where she says: "No one really knows who I am.
"Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it."
She captioned the post: "Sneak peak of my new documentary 🎥 #ThisIsParis premiering September 14th on @Youtube Originals.
"Finally ready to reveal who I truly am and speak about experiences in my life that I’ve never told anyone before. Get ready to meet The Real Paris."
A description of the documentary says: "Hilton projects a character of herself to the world to protect what is left of her youthful innocence.
"Haunted by the past and driven by an exceptional work ethic, Hilton is determined to make her own fortune and chart her own path."
What did Ghislaine Maxwell say about Paris Hilton?
Ghislaine reportedly saw Paris at a party and was stunned by her looks, prompting her to tell a friend she would be "perfect for Jeffrey," according to the Daily Mail.
Christopher Mason, a former friend of Ghislaine's recalled the moment in an upcoming docuseries Surviving Jeffrey Epstein, which is set to air Sunday on Lifetime.

"My friend said 'Yeah, she’s called Paris Hilton' and Ghislaine allegedly said: 'Ohhhh she’d be perfect for Jeffrey. Can you introduce us?'"
Mason, who had known Ghislaine since the 1980s, claims she never organized the encounter between Hilton and Epstein.
