In the trailer for her new documentary, Paris Hilton revealed she had a traumatic childhood experience that she has kept secret from her family.


On August 16, Paris Hilton dropped a trailer for her upcoming YouTube documentary called "This Is Paris," where she opened up about a traumatic childhood experience she has been keeping to herself.

In the clip, the 39-year-old tells the camera person while driving: "Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone."

In another scene, the heiress to the Hilton Hotel fortune tells her parents that she could not tell them about it because each time she attempted, she would get punished by them.

She confessed that she is still having nightmares abou her undisclosed experience. "And the only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there," she said.

Although the trailer does not expound on Hilton's painful childhood recollections, it does show footage of her as a young girl looking serious.


"This is Paris" will premiere on YouTube on September 14. Meanwhile, Hilton has been open about some previous traumas.

The "Stars Are Blind" singer once talked about a brief stint in prison after being found guilty of driving with a suspended license.

Hilton admitted the sex tape has changed her life forever, adding that she will never be able to erase that traumatic event from her life.


Hilton also has opened up about the 2003 sex tape of her and her then-partner, Rick Salomon. According to her, the release of the tape was against her will.

In an interview, she explained she would not like to be known for what people saw in the tape. But now people assumed she's something she's not, just because of it, she added.

Born in February 1981, in New York City, Hilton rose to popularity when she appeared on the hit reality television series "The Simple Life."

She then joined the cast of the 2005 slasher film "House of Wax." For her spectacular performance in the movie, the socialite won a Teen Choice Award. 

Hilton is also an acclaimed author. She wrote a book, titled "Confessions of An Heiress," which landed on the New York Times best-seller list.

Hilton has since made her way in and out of the headlines through her affairs, music ventures, and several television shows.
