Paris Hilton & Chris Zylka have broken up & broken off their engagement

Paris Hilton ProDNA launch party

About a month ago, Paris Hilton confirmed that she had delayed her wedding to Chris Zylka yet again. The first delay was over the summer, then they were supposed to have a late fall/early winter wedding, and that got delayed again too. Paris said it was about her schedule and not about anyone having cold feet. I think most of us who were paying attention – a limited number, granted – were like “yeah, this wedding isn’t going to happen.” Paris has a string of broken engagements behind her, and now we can add Chris Zylka to the pile:

Paris Hilton is single again. The TV personality and her fiancé, Chris Zylka, have called off their engagement after nearly two years together, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.

“She broke up with him a couple of weeks ago,” a source close to the duo tells Us. “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.”

Hilton, 37, and Zylka, 33, first met at an Oscars afterparty in the early aughts, but they did not start dating until years later. She debuted their relationship on Instagram in February 2017, and the pair made their red carpet debut two months later at the season 3 premiere of Zylka’s HBO show The Leftovers. The actor proposed to the Simple Life alum during a trip to Aspen, Colorado, in January.

Yeah, I sort of believe it? I believe she dumped him and I believe that one day, she was just like “whatever, I’m done.” While I bet she’s faithful to most of her boyfriends, I don’t think she’s ever really committed to them, or committed to seriously building a life with a guy. Say what you will about Paris, but she IS truly independent. I don’t think she wants to be tied down. Oh, well. I wonder who the next guy will be. Maybe she’ll go back to Europe and choose her next boyfriend there.

    I feel naive, I thought this guy was the one – and by the one, I mean for a few years, while she popped out a couple kids for a reality show before they eventually divorced. But still.

  2. Loopy says:

    She is like the runaway bride lol. She likes the chase and then gets cold feet. She should just scrap the whole marriage thing its not a must. Find a Stedman type and live your life

    • Still_Sarah says:

      I knew someone from the Middle East who was from a very conservative family and the parents kept trying to get her married off to “nice young men” who were “suitable”. Several broken engagements later, I think the parents have given up. I think she likes being single.

  3. Zee says:

    Are engagements the new appartement hunting for celebrity couples? You know, get engaged to let the public know you are exclusive, or something. Post pictures of your ring and engagement party, milk that cash cow for as long as possible and once the attention dies down you break up – publicly, of course. Maybe I’m too cynical but I’m starting to doubt the authenticity of almost every new couple in Hollywood these days. Stay married for at least 10 years, then I’ll believe you actually love each other. Everything else is just for publicity now.

  4. Seraphina says:

    I seriously was like like ????? When i saw this headline. I thought they were already married. Better call it off now then get married and then realize the mistake. But i agree, she is not the settleing doen type.

  5. RBC says:

    Paris was probably hoping her upcoming( now cancelled wedding) would attract the same attention as Meghan and Harry. She likes the whole being engaged, but being married is another story. She should just stay single( and also pet less)
    Also why does she pose like that? Does she have back issues?

  6. AmandaPanda says:

    Quelle surprise

    It does make me think that at least Paris in detstands the (financial) implications of marriage. To which I say, well done her.

  7. Debby says:

    I think Paris is too superficial and narcissistic to really settle down with another person. The girl has giant pictures of herself in her own house, for godsake. I think she likes the feeling of being engaged and being treated as a princess but as soon as the relationship requires her to go deeper she gets bored and checks out. I will commend Paris on not reproducing though.

    • CharliePenn says:

      I totally agree with your read on her. I watched her last reality show (oh the things we do when we are sick on the couch!), and while she was as entertainingly ridiculous as ever I also noticed that she is rather unkind, self centered, and utterly thoughtless of other people’s feelings. Like a complete self-obsessed narciccist. She did NOT come off well on her own show. She’s here for attention and seemed unable to empathize. It actually soured my opinion of her quite a bit, watching that show.

  8. greenmonster says:

    Independent? I always thought of her as massively self-centered. I just think there is no room for anyone else in her life because she doesn’t know how to deal with not being the most important person in a room.

  9. Talie says:

    Her relationships are the weirdest aspect of her image. She doesn’t seem to want to close the deal, so to speak. I mean, at this point, she’ll never hook the kind of guy she did at her peak, but I don’t even think she cares.

    I thought this might work because this guy was obsessed with her, as he seems to be with all his girlfriends. That seemed to be her style.

    • Maya says:

      She is 37, not 67 and she can get any man she wants.
      You are basically telling women she can get a good guy at 25 but at 38 not so much. That’s not ok.
      And I don’t even like Paris that much.

  10. Veronica S. says:

    LOL, independence is easy when you’re wealthy. The problem with Hilton is that she’ll never love anybody as much as she loves herself, so why would she ever let anyone come in between that relationship?

  11. Lexilla says:

    Remember his huge “Paris” tattoo? Yeah, that’s going to hurt.

  12. Lucy2 says:

    How many times has she been engaged now?! I think she does it for the attention.
    Maybe he’s the one who broke it off?

    I can’t stand how she still poses like she does. So stupid.

  13. Mox says:

    3rd failed engagement. I looked it up so no one else would have to lol

    • leskat says:

      I was thinking this was #4 but I’m glad someone else looked it up lol

    • Ange says:

      He’s got a few under his belt as well I’m pretty sure.

      • BchyYogi says:

        I comment on this woman like it’s 1999, prior to voting irregularities. ON topic, and In her defense, the selfie dating era wreaks havoc on romantic love. Statistically speaking, young ppl have less chance of developing relationships than a decade ago. Ironically, the problem is the “Paris effect”, famous for nothing, looks over substance etc. Also= did she attend an Oscars after party when she was around 7yrs old? If she met this guy “in the early aughts”?

  14. Desolee says:

    She’s beautiful and it’s nice she usually dates guys that are equally pretty. That’s really young though! Can’t imagine dating and early 20s guy and I’m almost her age

  15. LadyT says:

    This fellow never seemed like more than a prop or window dressing. Did you see the engagement video? He proposes on one knee then just walks off, while she primps and poses and makes eyes at her ring. A FedEx man could have delivered her ring for all the interest she showed Chris. Who’s to say who really called off the engagement. They’re both better off, certainly him.

    • Smiles says:

      Hahahahaha so true!! I remember watching HER engagement video and thought he may as well have not been in it! It was her and that ring. 😂

  16. Murphy says:

    I don’t see her ever getting married to anyone.

  17. Lala11_7 says:

    Her sister married a…ROTHSCHILD!!! Until I see Paris with someone with assets that can match or overshadow hers….I’m not taking it serious….

    • Tiffany says:

      This right here. She was trying to shine a turd because Nikki not only got a Rothchild, but got one down the aisle and children.

      I am also cynical but I think that the hold up was financial. He was not happy what was being offered in the prenup. If it was going to be on the cheap, yeah, she would have married him and divorced him when she was bored.

  18. JW says:

    Ah no … I was really rooting for Paris. She’s kept her head down, kept it classy, kept it clean. I was looking forward to her settling down and maybe having a kiddie or 2. Maybe I’m just old fashioned.

  19. Other Renee says:

    At least we don’t have to wonder who gets to keep the ring she bought for herself.

  20. Kathryn says:

    Trust me, if Paris wanted to be married by now she would be. She’s pretty and she is always dating someone, she really does seem to prefer her independent life. Good for her. Agree with the Steadman comment.

    • Rhys says:

      I also think she doesn’t have any to get married in a traditional sense, to have a good partner, family, etc. And not because she is independent as was mentioned above. There is a difference between not marrying b/c one is already wealthy, well connected and employed doing what she likes and actually wanting to stay single. She is indeed very attractive as several of guys I know who had met her told me. But she loves herself too much. Being in a relationship means making a bit of room for another person in your heart and mind. Paris doesn’t care about that. She is living exactly as she likes.

  21. Phonycat says:

    Yay, she can keep the hideous ring she bought herself and continue to do that same stupid pose that she does for the cameras

  22. NicoleinSavannah says:

    He wants the ring back!!

  23. Meg says:

    she chooses her career over a guy? what career? what does she do? I keep asking this….

  24. Sunshine says:

    Hahahahaha who didn’t see this one coming

  25. JANAK says:

    I think that wonky eye does her in every time, I mean looks fade, but that eye is forever.

  26. Egla says:

    I think she will get married eventually, to a very wealthy guy who will want her just as an arm candy and give her the good life. But not anytime soon.
    Also I have a strange feeling about her. She seems asexual to me. Like she doesn’t really likes being physical with someone. All I have seen is her posing with random guys and lose them soon and not a complain or drama from her, which makes me think they are paid people to play a boyfriend. I mean everybody in show business dates someone famous or at least tries. She, by all accounts is beautiful, has money, and isn’t much different from a lot of other starlets so why hasn’t she had any high profile relationship???
    Or she may be as said previously: just self absorbed and likes her life just fine.
    I can’t sleep tonight and I am discussing the love life of Paris “rich as f..k” Hilton. My life is like her minus the money and the engagements.
