Paris Hilton Net Worth (2022 Update): Is It Really Her Own?

Paris Hilton is probably the closest thing to royalty.

Heiress to the Hilton hotel chain, her $300 million net worth is just a cherry on top.

Paris Hilton Net Worth
But How Did She Make Her Money?

The one thing that’s well-known about ultra high net worth individuals (UHNWs) – the folks worth at least $30 million USD – is that virtually ALL of them have some part of their fortune in real estate.

Many of the more famous rich people and “celebrity entrepreneurs” actually got their start in real estate. And that’s great for them! Not so much for us…

See, more millionaires are created during recessions than any other part of the economic cycle. Which is cool, except the last real recession was 2008, when real estate prices were in the tank and you could buy a whole neighborhood with $100,000.

Now, though, real estate prices are through the roof, and interest rates are skyrocketing too. So how does the everyday person start building a massive net worth in an economy like this one?

Have you considered Digital Real Estate?

The internet’s been around for decades, but the possibility of actually owning high-value pieces of property ON the internet is fairly new.

In other words, it’s a wide open playing field…but it won’t stay that way forever.

Here’s a quick summary of how Digital Real Estate works:

You invest a little money (maybe around $100) to either purchase or build a piece of “land” on the internet.

You specifically place this “land” in a high-traffic area, where lots of people pass through (just like traditional real estate, it’s all about Location, Location, Location).

The folks who pass through your “land” all happen to be looking for a specific product or service, so you “rent” your land to a business owner who happens to offer that product or service.

The business owner pays you $500 to $2,000 a month to “rent” your Digital Real Estate, because it helps them connect with their ideal customers.

Think of it like buying a strip mall, or an office space, just on the internet, for WAAAAYYY less money and headache.

Born with a silver spoon in her mouth, there’s a lot to unpack about Paris Hilton.

She’s a party-goer who acts and a model that writes on the side. And oh, she’s also the heiress of the multimillion Hilton Hotel Empire.

She always said that acting was her “first love,” and she went on to star in movies like “House of Wax,” “The Bling Ring,” “Zoolander,” “Wonderland,” and “The Hottie and the Nottie.”

She also owns a fashion line, a perfume line, a night-life line, and a record label called “Heiress Records.” Well, that’s a lot of lines.

Her life is all glitters and diamonds, you could say. A lot of music, parties, and wealth, with several short-lived romances with actors like Leonardo DiCaprio. And then more parties, music, and wealth.

early Life

Paris Hiltons Grandfather Barron Hilton

From an early age, Paris Whitney Hilton has only seen the greener side of the grass. Being the great-granddaughter of a legendary hotelier, Conrad Hilton Sr., you could say that her fame is thanks to her Hilton family fortune.

Paris was born in New York on February 17, 1981, and raised in Beverly Hills, California, by a former actress Kathy Hilton and real estate tycoon Richard Hilton. She is the eldest of her three other siblings, Nicky Hilton, Barron Hilton, and Conrad Hilton.

Hilton spent her childhood moving from one luxury home to the next. She attended the Buckley School and St. Paul the Apostle Church School in Los Angeles and graduated elementary school in 1995.

She then spent her first year of high school at the Marywood-Palm Valley School in California while living with her family in their Beverly Hills mansion before moving to the East Coast in 1996. Some could say that Paris Hilton’s Grandfather started her off.

Her parents sent her to a series of boarding schools for troubled teens when she was 16, the last one being the Provo Canyon School for 11 months, and left in 1999 when she turned 18. She continued her studies at Dwight School in New York City, eventually dropping out after a few months, and later earned her GED.

Paris Hilton started modeling at 19 and got her first contract under Donald Trump’s label, ‘T Management.’ She enjoyed modeling and participated in campaigns for leading clothing designers like Christian Dior and Tommy Hilfiger.

She quickly rose to fame and etched her own name in the news and party scenes and continued to do so when she went on to work with other top agencies, including Ford Models Management and London’s Model 1 Agency.

By 2001, Paris Hilton was the “socialite” and “New York’s Leading IT Girl.” But as you know, fame almost always comes with a rough patch. Hers is when a sex tape scandal made rounds on the internet in November 2003 with her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon.

Everyone called it “One Night in Paris,” but that doesn’t just end there. Paris filed suit because, apparently, Salomon decided to commercialize their sex tape.

Even though the case was settled, Paris reportedly made $400,000 from the video, which she donated to charity. I guess you could say that a good thing came out of it, at least.

Not even a month had passed, and Paris Hilton debuted on FOX with her first reality show, “The Simple Life,” with her long-time friend Nicole Richie. The show lasted for five seasons and featured her $3 million mansion in Hollywood Hills.

People thought that her scandal would hurt the ratings and turn away potential viewers, but the show ended up being a huge hit.

It was indeed a success that Paris was on Saturday Night Live as a guest the following month and appeared on the big screens the next year.

She continued her acting career, and you probably even have seen her in House of Wax, and mind you, even though it was a small role, it was significant enough to earn her a nomination for the Teen Choice Awards for Best Scream.

Her list of reality shows continued coming like her hit MTV reality series “Paris Hilton’s My New BFF,” which even had an international version, “Paris Hilton’s Dubai BFF.”

And of course, her most recent, Paris in Love, where you could follow her life as she and Carter Reum plan their wedding. Spoiler alert: there’s a bachelorette party in Las Vegas.

Aside from acting, she also dipped her hand at other kinds of business. She founded the sub-label Heiress Records, published her first book, “Confessions of an Heiress,” ventured into a perfume line, a chain of nightclubs, and even became a DJ.
