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, aired on her YouTube channel on September 14, 2021.

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.”

On October 20, 2021, Paris attended a Washington DC event with lawmakers and rights advocates to beg for reform in congregate-child care facilities.

She urged members of Congress and President Joe Biden to pass the Accountability for Congregate Care Act into law, which would aim to safeguard care on a national level.

Speaking at the US Capitol on Wednesday, Paris explained how she still struggles to sleep due to post-traumatic stress disorder she suffered after spending time in the boarding school.

She has also testified to change the law in Utah and wrote an op-ed calling for national reform in the Washington Post.

“I wish I could tell you that what I experienced was unique or even rare – but sadly it’s not,” she said in a speech on Wednesday.

“Every day in America, children in congregate care settings are being physically, emotionally and sexually… Brinkwire Brief News.
