Paris Hilton Explains How Sex Tape Gave Her PTSD

Paris Hilton became the subject of headlines back in 2004 when her sex tape with then-boyfriend Rick Saloman was posted on the internet. The tape was actually posted by Saloman himself, unbeknownst to Hilton. Now, there are various laws against this sort of thing but at the time, there was nothing Hilton could really do. Someone she trusted had betrayed her and over the years, it left various emotional scars that have yet to go away.

During an interview with Vanity Fair, Hilton admitted that the whole ordeal gave her PTSD and that she still deals with the effects of what happened. As she noted, the tape was meant to be between her and someone she cared for at the time.
