Los Angeles, July 1 — Socialite Paris Hilton said she doesn’t trust people outside her family as she is afraid they are after her for something.
The 32-year-old claims she has lost faith in human nature ever since she was targeted by the thieving Bling Ring gang in 2008, who repeatedly let themselves into her home while she was out, and was later confronted by a knife-wielding stalker in August 2010 as he tried to break into her mansion, reports contactmusic.com.
“I fear someone coming up behind me or out of the crowd,” the Sunday Times newspaper quoted her as saying.
When asked what she would tell her younger self, she admitted: “Be less trusting. There are people close to you who will use you up. Now I don’t trust many outside my family. I suspect they are after something from me.”
While Hilton has been permanently shaken by the events, she insists she won’t change house.
“I hate being here alone, but now we have lasers and pressure-pad alarms and full-time armed guards. And I will not be driven out of my home by these events,” she said.
