Paris Hilton Speaks Out On Sex Tape: 'It Felt Like Rape'

Paris Hilton has broken down as she discussed the aftermath of her 'sex tape' with Rick Salomon.

Reliving the ordeal during The American Meme for Netflix, the heiress tearfully recounted how ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon released the tape as a porn movie called 1 Night in Paris in 2004.

“It was like being raped," she said, adding, "It felt like I’ve lost part of my soul and been talked about in such cruel and mean ways. Literally, overnight my entire life changed … everyone was making fun of it. I didn’t leave my house for, like months.”

She continued, “I was so embarrassed. I felt like everyone on the street was laughing at me.”

Adding insult to injury was the fact that Salomon went on to distribute the tape through his adult film company. He later paid the now 37-year-old  $400,000 and a percentage of the profits from the tape.

The American Meme follows Paris and fellow celebs DJ Khaled, Hailey Baldwin and Emily Ratajkowski as well as  Instagram stars Josh Ostrovsky, aka The Fat Jewish, Brittany Furlan and Kirill Bichutsky.
