After a whirlwind romance, Paris Hilton who broke up with boyfriend Chris Zylka, opened up for the first time on ending the engagement. The 39-year-old heiress spoke to Cosmopolitan UK about the relationship that ended in 2018.

On getting engaged, Paris told the magazine, "It was the best decision I’ve ever made in my life. I just don’t think [he] was the right person and I feel like I’m an incredible woman and I deserve someone so amazing. It just didn’t feel right."

She added: "I’ve worked way too hard to just give my life to someone. They have to be perfect.”
