From a sex tape scandal, acrimonious breakups, fleeting celebrity romances and a total of FOUR engagements, takes a look back at the 40-year-old hotel heiress’s very extensive relationship history…

Chris Zylka – 2017-2018

Paris’ most recent proposal before finding love with Carter was with HBO actor Chris Zylka.

Perfect for me in every way.’ They would break up a few months later.

There was no love lost between Paris and The Hills star Doug Reinhardt. After a messy breakup, she told UsWeekly, “I’m so over that — I don’t even care!” I can’t even remember that time in my life.

Benji Madden – 2008

Before marrying Cameron Diaz, Paris Hilton and Benji Madden dated for nine months. However, it was not to be as she split from the Good Charlotte guitarist in November 2008. “She’s saddened by the breakup, but they’re just too different and they wanted different things in life,” a source said at the time. “He was loyal and sweet, but it was time to take a break.”

Paris later said she felt “so betrayed” and recently claimed she developed PTSD from the whole experience. It was my first real relationship. Eighteen. I was so in love with him and I wanted to make him happy,” she said in her recent document This Is Paris. And I just remember him pulling out the camera. And he put a little pressure on me about it. It was like being raped electronically.”
