Paris Hilton has opened up once more about the alleged abuse she claims she suffered while staying at the Provo Canyon School as a “troubled teen”.

The reality star, who spoke openly about the trauma in last year's documentary, This Is Paris, says the experience is something she will struggle to move on from.

In an interview in this week's OK! magazine, Paris reveals the alleged abuse was like "living in hell every single day", but admits filming the documentary and discussing her experience on camera was helpful in her recovery.

"I don’t think it’s something I’ll ever get over fully," she said. "But to actually discuss it for the first time was a very therapeutic experience. Going through that was one of the most difficult times of my life. It was like living in hell every single day."

Paris, who once starred in reality show 'The Simple Life' with best pal Nicole Richie, continued: "I've had nightmares ever since I was a teenager and it’s something that has affected my life in so many ways.

"But it’s also made me strong. I felt like I could make it through anything after going through all of that."

Paris claims she suffered emotional, physical and verbal abuse over the 11 months she attended Provo Canyon, which was then a boarding school/ treatment centre for 'troubled teens'.

The facility was sold by its pervious owners in 2000 and as a result of Paris' accusations the new owners have said they "cannot comment on the operation or patient experience prior to that”.

Paris insists her experience left her with trust issues, insomnia and anxiety, calling her alleged abusers "very sadistic people" and "manipulators".

But the star says she's seeking help. "By releasing all of those emotions and speaking about it, it’s really helped me," she said.

And the future is looking bright for Paris, 40, who said she can't wait to marry fiance, actor Carter Reum. "My wedding has been the day I’ve been dreaming about my whole life and now I’ve found my Prince Charming, I just can’t wait," she gushed.

Despite growing up dreaming of a grand do, Paris reckons she'll be having a “small and intimate” ceremony.

While the pandemic is one reason for scaling down her plans, it’s clear her excitement at marrying Carter and just wanting to get on with it outweighs any desire to arrange a huge bash.

“He makes me feel like the luckiest girl in the world every day,” she tells us. “I didn’t realise it was possible to feel this happy.”
