Hot water is what Paris Hilton just landed herself in.
The 36-year-old heiress of the famed hotel chain asserts the women who accused President Donald Trump of sexual harassment are just looking for financial gain — or love.
“I think that they are just trying to get attention and fame,” she told Marie Claire. “I feel like, a lot of people, when something happens, all these opportunists will come out. They want to get money or get paid to not say anything or get a settlement when nothing really happened. So I don’t believe any of that.”
Hilton said Trump’s accusers were interested in the real estate magnet because he is “charming” and “good-looking.”
“I’m sure that they were trying to be with him, too,” Hilton said. “Because a lot of women, I’ve seen, like him because he’s wealthy and he’s charming and good-looking so I feel like a lot of these girls just made the story up.”
Trump has spoken highly of Hilton in the past.
An old interview with Trump and Howard Stern surfaced last October where he called a 12-year-old Hilton “beautiful.”
“I’ve known Paris Hilton from the time she’s 12, her parents are friends of mine, and the first time I saw her, she walked into the room and I said, ‘Who the hell is that?” Trump said, before adding he viewed her infamous leaked sex tape. “At 12, I wasn’t interested. I’ve never been into that … but she was beautiful.”
Trump was thrust into sexual creep status after he bragged about grabbing women by their genitals in a 2005 conversation caught on a hot microphone. At the time of the talk, Trump was the host of NBC’s “The Apprentice.”
In the audio, Trump is heard explaining his failed attempt at seducing a woman.
“I moved on her, and I failed. I’ll admit it,” Trump is heard saying to Billy Bush. “I did try and [expletive] her. She was married.”
Following the leak, Bush was fired from NBC’s “Today,” while Trump dubbed the conversation as “locker room talk.”
Trump has faced a ton of sexual assault allegations over the last year. Several women have stepped forward and claimed Trump grabbed their breasts and genitals, including a fired “Apprentice” contestant.
Trump has vehemently denied all allegations.
