- Paris Hilton opened up about a childhood incident that still gives her nightmares.
- YouTube Originals documentary, This Is Paris, comes out on September 14.
After filming her new YouTube Originals documentary over the course of a year, Paris Hilton is ready to open up about an incident that occurred during her childhood that still gives her nightmares.
In a sneak peak obtained by People ahead of the documentary's release on September 14, Paris opened up about the mental abuse she endured at boarding school in Utah.
In the clip, she said:
"I'm nervous. I'm shaking. It's hard to even eat, because my stomach is just like, turning. I don't know—it's something that's very personal, and not something I like talking about. No one really knows who I am. Something happened in my childhood that I've never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it."
Paris' loyal followers will have to wait until the documentary premieres to hear more about this unfortunate experience, but she previously described filming as "very therapeutic" and said the end result will allow fans to "see a different side to me than they've ever seen before." She added, "Because I honestly didn't even know who I was up until this year. I really learned a lot about myself through this film."
For those who haven't set a calendar reminder for the premiere date, here's a quick synopsis:
"This Is Paris uncovers the hidden past of the international icon. As Paris confronts the heartbreaking trauma that forged who she is today, this deeply compelling portrait tells the real story of a teenage girl desperate to escape into a fantasy and sheds new light on the insta-fame culture that Paris helped to create."
