The 40-year-old entrepreneur Paris Hilton has been involved in several controversies, some of which have even led to Paris’ arrest.

Aside from the controversial events, Paris Hilton has been an actress, fashion designer and model for over 20 years.

That said, it’s very hard to pin down exactly what has brought her the most fame.

Paris Hilton is best known as a celebrity who is “famous for being famous”.

As we said, since she’s an active model, writer, and even a DJ, it’s hard to guess what made her famous.

However, she made her first TV appearances at the age of 19, after signing with Trump Model Management.

Shortly after signing this contract, Hilton landed on the cover of Vanity Fair in 2000.

In 2001, she starred in a reality TV show called “The Simple Life”.

However, her role in this show was completely overshadowed as her private sex tape was leaked in 2001.

This controversy made the headlines of multiple tabloids.

From 2004 to 2007, Paris Hilton wrote her debut book “Confessions of an Heiress”, starred in the movie “House of Wax”, and even produced and released her debut music album “Paris”.

We can all agree that she is very creative, and also that she likes to be in the eyes of the media.

From 2008 to 2022, Paris Hilton hosted her reality TV shows, including “The World According to Paris”, “Cooking With Paris”, as well as “Paris in Love” from 2021.

Apart from her reality TV series, she was the main character in documentaries such as “Paris, Not France” and “This is Paris”.

In 2012, she started chasing her DJ career, which she also used for charity.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, she has performed virtual DJ concerts and donated all the money raised to charitable organizations.

She also started her podcast series called “This is Paris” in 2021.

Paris Hilton does not directly own the Hilton hotels.

However, she is Hilton’s heiress and the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton.

Conrad Hilton was the founder of Hilton Hotels, and his son Barron Hilton (the grandfather of Paris Hilton) inherited the estate from Conrad.

However, before he died, Barron Hilton decided to “donate” 97 percent of their Hilton estate to Conrad Hilton’s charitable organization. What remains of the estate was shared between close relatives after Barron’s death.

As of 2022, Paris Hilton’s net worth is estimated to be $300 million dollars.

Most of her income comes directly from selling her many skin products and fragrances. She is believed to have made over $2 billion from her perfumes.

She also earns a lot of money from her public appearances.

She is reportedly paid from $250,000 to $1 million just for appearing at the promotional events and parties.

She makes about $1 million per DJ set.

Yes, she makes a lot of money!

But the good news is that Paris Hilton donates to charities and very often even organizes her own fundraisers.

Among her donations known in the media, we can highlight a few:

  • donations to the Starlight Children’s Foundation, the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Dream for Future Africa Foundation, Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals, No Kid Hungry)
  • participation in the relief benefits (for COVID-19, floods in Japan, earthquake in Central Mexico).

She has donated over $10 million to date and is a regular at numerous benefit and charity events.
