Paris Hilton and her fiance Chris Zylka split, call off engagement
Paris Hilton and her fiance Chris Zylka have decided to go their own ways and have called off their engagement. A source further shared: 'This wedding was never going to happen'.
Paris Hilton and her fiance Chris Zylka have called off their engagement and decided to split up. Many people who are close to Paris shared that they were not shocked to hear that the heiress had ended her engagement.
As reported by JustJared, a source shared, "Their relationship started to become off-kilter after about two years together. Paris will be focusing on her brand like DJ-ing and fragrances while Chris will get back into acting and art, like his gallery pop-ups with Banksy during Art Basel". Another source shared with PEOPLE, "This wedding was never going to happen. They never had an engagement party and Chris’ parents never even met Paris’ parents".
Even though Paris had earlier shared that she and Zylka had postponed their wedding to 2019 given their hectic work schedules, the source claims that the couple never really rescheduled. A source shared, "They postponed the 11/11 date without a new date. No one is surprised by this at all. Paris got caught up in wanting a wedding ([siblings] Nicky and Barron Hilton are both married) and she just didn’t think about the marriage part. It was never going to work with Chris."
While another insider added that Paris had called off her engagement to Chris "a few weeks ago" after she realized that "it was not right for her". "The relationship moved very fast. She is traveling the world for her skincare and perfume. She wishes him all the best and hopes they can remain friends," the source continued.
In August, earlier this year, Paris got candid about postponing her engagement and said, "It was just, 11/11 is something I love because I always say, ’11:11, make a wish for good luck.’ So Chris was like, ‘Oh let’s do it on 11/11. That’s such a special number for you. I was like yeah, but I didn’t look at my schedule. Then this summer we were looking at our schedules and I was like, ‘Oh my goodness we are both working nonstop until like New Year’s."
She also added how marriage was not something which she and her fiance Chris intended on rushing into. "We’re both just working so much and decided it would be much better just to push it to next year. With all the planning I want it to be perfect and you can’t rush something like this," she shared.
Though the couple may not have made it too far with all the wedding details, Hilton told PEOPLE in April that she had found her wedding gown after going through all the ateliers along with her sister Nicky Hilton during the New York Fashion Week. She shared, "I did pick the final one! It is so iconic and I can’t wait for everyone to see. Right now we’re custom making it so it is going to be really special."
"We looked at a lot of different options because I am friends with so many incredible designers who are so talented. So it was a really hard choice," she added. The couple announced the news of their engagement on January 2 in 2018 after he proposed to her while on a ski trip during the New Year's weekend.
