Paris Hilton’s back on the market, and this time…it’s for legit reasons.
Every once in a while I like to check in on Paris Hilton…she’s kind of the gauge for how celebrity has changed since I was young, and what can I say? I have some affection for her/that. Apparently, between DJ gigs Paris got herself into a pretty serious relationship with an Austrian “entrepreneur” named Thomas Gross. They were together for much of 2015, and late last year, Paris announced that she was moving to Switzerland full-time to be with Gross. In classic Paris fashion, the socialite made a big deal about it and announced the move and did this magazine cover etc. etc. etc. BUT: four months later and the whole thing is done. Paris! You’re not so lucky in love, are ya?
“They are both friends and remain close but with their busy work schedules and the long distance it just got too difficult,” sources close to the pair told Life & Style.
Paris, 35, who has built herself a global empire of fragrances estimated to be worth over $2.5 billion is an in-demand DJ traveling all over the world for her shows and running her business empire.
“Paris is very close with her family and her sister Nicky Hilton is about to have a baby. She really wants to be there for her and be an aunt. It broke her heart being so far away from family,” the insiders continued. Friends of the couple know they met in Cannes, France in 2015 and spent the summer in Ibiza together when she performed as a DJ.
“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,” the sources added.
This kind of rings…sad to me (emotions, UGH). Why? Because it’s kind of mature that she’s focusing on her own work and family, and he just can’t make it work anywhere else. And now she’s back at Coachella being Paris, the way we like her.
