Paris Hilton opens up about her leaked sex tape

According to USA Today, in her memoir, Paris shared that she doesn’t remember much about the fateful night, except for the fact that Rick wanted to make a videotape of their lovemaking.

The 43-year-old recalled Rick telling her that if she didn’t make it, he’d easily find someone who would. Paris thought it was the worst thing to be dumped by an adult man because she acted like a “stupid kid” who didn’t know how to play adult games.

She further revealed that she was told that no one else would see her.
