Paris Hilton says she was sexually abused as a teenager by boarding school staff performing cervical exams


Paris Hilton said this week that she was sexually assaulted as a teenager at a boarding school in Utah by staff performing cervical exams.

She alleged that staff members “very late at night” took her and other girls from the Provo Canyon school in Utah to a room.

“They wanted to lay us down on a table and put their fingers inside us,” she told The New York Times in a moving video interview. “I don’t know what they were doing, but it definitely wasn’t a doctor, and it was really scary, and it was something that I had really blocked out for many years.”

She said that looking back on it as an adult, she realized it was “definitely sexual abuse”.

She later said a staff member told her he was taking away her phone privileges when she started talking to her parents about her treatment at school.

“We are going to tell your parents that you are manipulating, that you are lying,” she said. The staff member said he hung up the phone while she was on the phone with her parents.

She continued: “Sleep deprived and heavily medicated, I couldn’t understand what was going on. I was forced to lie on a padded table, spread my legs and undergo cervical exams. J cried as they held me down and said, ‘No!’ They just said, “Shut up. Shut up. Stop struggling or you’ll go to the Obs.
