Paris Hilton says she was sexually abused at school in horrific ‘medical’ claim

Paris Hilton has claimed she was sexually abused at boarding school.

The hotel heiress has previously said she was subjected to verbal and physical abuse when she was at Provo Canyon School in Utah in the 90s, when she was in her teens.

And she has now made further allegations, saying staff members "would have us lay on the table and put their fingers inside of us".

Opening up to The New York Times in an emotional video, Paris said: "Very late at night – this would be around three or four in the morning – they would take myself and other girls into this room, and they would perform medical exams.

"This wasn't even with a doctor. It was with a couple different staff members, where they would have us lay on the table and put their fingers inside of us. And I don't know what they were doing, but it was definitely not a doctor."

She went on: "And it was really scary, and it's something that I really had blocked out for many years.

"But it's coming back all the time now, and I think about it. And now, looking back as an adult, that was definitely sexual abuse."

Paris, 41, opened up further on Twitter, saying: "Sleep-deprived and heavily medicated, I didn't understand what was happening.

"I was forced to lie on a padded table, spread my legs and submit to cervical exams. I cried while they held me down and said, ‘No!’ They just said, ‘Shut up. Be quiet. Stop struggling or you’ll go to Obs'."

The star said she felt as if her childhood had been "stolen" from her.

Provo Canyon School was purchased by Universal Health Services in 2000.

When it was previously approached following the allegations of mental and physical abuse, the school said in a statement: “Originally opened in 1971, Provo Canyon School was sold by its previous ownership in August 2000. We therefore cannot comment on the operations or patient experience prior to this time."

It went on: "Provo Canyon School today is an intensive, psychiatric residential treatment centre for youth between the ages of eight and 18 that have special, and often complex, mental health and emotional needs. We offer innovative, evidence-based therapeutic interventions, academic instruction and life-skills training tailored to the needs of each of our students."

Daily Star has contacted the school and Universal Health Services for comment.
