Paris Hilton is (a) engaged, (b) currently planning a wedding, and (c) 100 percent not pregnant, despite, ahem, rumors you may have heard to the contrary. Yep, the reality star, DJ, socialite, and — some (me) might argue — living legend is making it official with VEEV Spirits cofounder Carter Reum, who she plans to “spend forever with.” Couldn’t be more pumped for these two! And while we wait for their fancy wedding to go down, we’re taking a look back at Paris’s prior relationships that led to her finding her forever soul mate — including three other engagements. And also a very random beef with Nick Carter? LOL.
Carter Reum: January 2020 to NOW

Paris and Carter fell hard and fast, getting engaged just a few months after dating. Paris announced news of their engagement on Instagram, writing, “My love and I have been together since our first date and for my birthday, I have arranged a special trip to tropical paradise. As we walked to dinner along the beach, Carter led us to a cabana adorned with flowers and dropped to one knee. I said yes, yes to forever. There’s no one I’d rather spend forever with. “
Chris Zylka: February 2017 to November 2018
Paris and actor Chris Zykla dated for about a year, and it got super serious for a moment! To the point where they even got engaged, with Chris popping the question during a ski vacation. But alas, the couple called off said engagement in November 2018 and a source told Us Weekly, “She broke up with him a couple of weeks ago. She has been out of the country in Dubai and Australia. Paris realized that it wasn’t meant to be and he wasn’t right for her. There were some problems along the way. She’s done. “
Thomas Gross: Circa 2015 to April 2016
Paris and Swiss millionaire Thomas Gross dated for about a year after meeting at Cannes in 2015 but broke things off in April 2016. “They are both friends and remain close, but with their busy work schedules and the long distance, it just got too difficult , ”A source told Life & Style, adding that“ they remain close friends and care for each other but work and the distance just got in the way. She will be back in Ibiza for her DJ residency all summer and he has to be in Switzerland for his work — it’s an impossible situation. “
There aren’t any readily available pics of Paris and Thomas at events together, which actually makes sense considering Paris told Closer this in November 2015: “He’s very private, so he’d never want cameras following us around.”
River Viiperi: 2012 to 2014
Paris and model River Viiperi dated for about two years, and she confirmed rumors of their split when she was spotted kissing a ~ mystery man ~ in front of paps in Malibu. Around the same time, River posted a woeful and since-deleted musing to Insta that read:
“At some point you will realize that you have done too much for someone or something, that the only next possible step to do is to stop. Leave them alone. Walk away. It’s not like you’re giving up, and it’s not like you shouldn’t try. It’s just that you have to draw the line of determination from desperation. What is truly yours would eventually be yours, and what is not, no matter how hard you try, will never be. “
Cy Waits: Circa 2010 to June 2011
This one was kinda messy! Club owner Cy Waits appeared on Paris’s show The World According to Paris, and apparently he didn’t love how he was portrayed. By the time they broke up, Cy wasn’t shy about dissing his ex in the press, telling People, “I don’t want to speak for Paris, but this breakup is something I knew for a number of months needed to happen— and we finally saw eye to eye. I need to get back to focusing on my career. In my next relationship, I expect honesty, strong values, true communication, commitment, mutual trust, and respect, something I didn’t necessarily have recently. At the end of the day, I want my partner and I to have the same ethics. “
Doug Reinhardt: Circa 2009 to April 2010
Paris and The Hills star Doug Reinhardt dated for about a year and also had a super-messy split. Like, she went in during an interview with Us Weekly, saying, “I am, like, so past that — I don’t even care! I don’t even remember that time in my life. I am over it! I just realized that I’m better off without him. So I ended it because I deserve something much better! He wasn’t right for me and I will eventually find somebody who loves me for who I am. “
Benji Madden: March 2008 to November 2008
No drama here! Benji and Paris were short and sweet, and when they broke up, a source told People, “She is saddened by the breakup but they’re just too different and they wanted different things in life. He was loyal and sweet but it was time to take a break. “
Stavros Niarchos: September 2005 to May 2006
Paris was spotted with Greek shipping heir Stavros Niarchos days after she split with Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis (we’ll get to him in a sec), and they dated on and off for about a year. Paris’s rep confirmed their breakup in early May, saying, “I confirm that she’s split with him. They are no longer a couple. I don’t know the exact day they split. “
Paris Kassidokostas-Latsis: December 2004 to September 2005
Paris and her name twin dated for just about a year, and their ~ thing ~ can best be described as a whirlwind. Like, they got engaged after just eight months. Both of them seemed more than happy to talk to the press about their split, with Paris (the guy) telling People, “Right now is a very tough time for me. I love Paris very much. This was the best experience of my life. ” Meanwhile, Paris (the gal) said, “I will always love him. He treated me like a princess the entire time. I love how he’s handling this like a gentleman. I really respect that. “
Nick Carter: January 2004 to July 2004
Yep, Paris dated Backstreet Boys’ Nick Carter for just seven months! And he, uh, said some pretty unflattering things about their time together in his 2013 autobiography, writing, “Paris was the worst person in the world for me to hook up with. [She] fed my worst impulses as far as partying. “
FYI, Paris shot back, “I don’t believe I was a negative influence on Nick. We dated for a very short period of time almost 10 years ago and when we met, he was already a successful pop star, I’m pretty sure that was the only thing influencing him at the time. I’m glad he got help for his problems and wish him all the best. “
Deryck Whibley: Circa 2003
It was short, it was sweet, and barely anything was written about it because truly, what even was the internet back then?
Jason Shaw: 2002 to 2003
Paris and model Jason Shaw were engaged before online tabloids were really a thing, and not much is known about their relationship — other than that they stayed friends and hung out in 2010. A source told E! News at the time, “Paris has always loved Jason and cared about him deeply. But when they were together, she was just a kid and not ready for such a commitment. “
Rick Salomon: Circa 2001
Paris and Rick dated for a couple of years, and he completely destroyed her trust by leaking their sex tape. “I just felt so betrayed,” Paris told CNN years later. “This was not some random guy; this was someone I was with for a few years. I thought I did [love] him, and I can’t believe that he would do something like that to me. It’s something that changed my life forever. “
Ugh. So glad Paris has found her happily-ever-after after going through all this! Can’t wait to watch her wedding prep play out on her upcoming show, Paris in Love (which is filming rn!).
