The school has since changed ownership, but has been sued by other survivors who claimed they were abused during their time there, The Times reported.

The new owners declined to comment on the past regime when contacted by The Times, it reported.

Hilton also spoke about the abuse in her new documentary "This Is Paris," which will be released next month. The footage also documents another tough period for Hilton when she was young — just a few years after leaving school, a private sex tape filmed when she was 20 with her then-boyfriend Rick Salomon was leaked.

She told Marie Claire in 2018 that the video was "the most embarrassing, humiliating thing that has ever happened to me in my life," and the leak deeply impacted her mental health.

In February, she spoke about her mental health and how trust is a big issue for her in an interview with Cosmopolitan. She said she's had "a little bit" of therapy, but can't see one for a sufficient period of time because she "doesn't really trust anyone."
