How did Paris Hilton earn her money and wealth?
Paris Hilton was born on February 17, 1981, New York City and raised there in Beverly Hills. Today she is recognized as a businesswoman, socialite, television/media personality, model, DJ, actress, and singer. She is the eldest daughter of the real-estate developer, Richard Hilton and socialite, Kathy Richards Hilton, and great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, a well-known personality and the founder of Hilton Hotels, a corporation worth US$4.4 billion as of 2017. Paris Hilton is reportedly one of the multiple heirs to the Hilton hotel fortune along with her siblings. She began her career during her teens by signing with Trump Model Management, a New York-based modeling development agency. Soon she was flooded with campaigns from leading clothing designers like Christian Dior and Tommy Hilfiger and many national publications as well. She has worked for top-notch agencies including Ford Models and London’s Model 1 Agency during her modeling career. In the year 2001, she was christened “New York’s leading IT girl”.
Her acting career began with a cameo in “Zoolander.” She later appeared in the horror flick “Nine Lives” in 2002 which was followed by the films “Wonderland” and “Cat in the Hat”. She has made several appearances on the small screen through reality TV. In 2003, Paris Hilton was trapped in a whirlwind of attention from the media tabloids after the leak of her sex tape with her then-boyfriend and estranged husband of Pamela Anderson, Rick Solomon. The tape was released a few days prior to her official launch in “The Simple Life”. She filed a suit against the unauthorized video and received $400,000 in compensation by settling the case outside the court. The first episode of “The Simple Life” attracted 13 million views.
The following year, Hilton was seen on the big cinema screen in movies like “The Hillz and Raising Helen” along with other business. She was awarded the “Teen Choice Award” for her movie “House of Wax” in 2005. Her book, “Confessions of an Heiress” made all the way to the New York Times bestseller list. She announced her engagement to Greek shipping heir, Paris Latsis in May 2005 and later called off the ritual. Soon she began dating Stavros Niarchos III, another heir of Greek Shipping Industry. In the same year, she released her own jewelry line and started working on her new book, “Your Heiress Diary: Confess It All to Me”. Paris Hilton reportedly got engaged to beau Chris Zylka as of Jan 3, 2018, and increased her net worth by 2 million dollars on being gifted a 20-carat diamond pear-shaped ring by her boyfriend.
She started her singing career in 2006 with Warner Bros. Records and made it to the U.S Billboard 200 Chart at no. 6 while she continued the fourth season of “The Simple Life”. The Simple Life was shut down in 2007 with its fifth season being the last. She went on to star in several movies such as “Repo! The Genetic Opera” (2008) and “The Hottie & The Nottie” (2008) and launched “Paris Hilton My New BFF”, the reality series.
She decided to take her career back towards music and broke many records partnering with Lil Wayne’s and Birdman’s label Cash Money Records. She is one of the highest-paid celebrity DJs despite receiving negative reviews from critics.
