Hacker stole nude photos and $130k from Paris Hilton and then threw a New Year's party
The hackers reportedly downloaded naked pictures from the heiress’ iCloud account, but it’s unclear if these were shared
Paris Hilton may not have had the best year in 2017 as TMZ reports that she was robbed of $130K and nudes by a hacker. The report notes that the hacker was a woman named Paytsar Bkhchadzhyan and was active from 2015 to 2017. While Paris was one of her victims, the website notes that she had done the same to two other people, whose identity have not been revealed.
According to the documents that were obtained by the website, Paytsar hacked into Paris's bank account and used her credit cards to make reservations for a 2015 New Year's Eve party at Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel. She was reportedly charged up to $40k on the credit cards for that night alone. To make things worse, Paytsar also impersonated Paris online and used it to convince Paris's assistant to send $80k to one of her accounts.
The documents further reveal that Paytsar got her hands on the nudes taken by Paris by hacking her iCloud but it is not known what she did with them. She also hacked her dad, Rick Hilton, and sister Nicky in an attempt to steal passwords for other accounts belonging to Paris.
Luckily for Paris, the hacker was busted in 2017 and pled guilty to bank fraud conspiracy. Paytsar is going to be sentenced on Monday, and federal prosecutors are recommending she gets 57 months in prison. This may be followed by three years of supervised release, and pay restitution to the victims totaling $318,535.
This comes after Paris recently opened up about how she felt as though she had been raped after the 2004 sex tape leak. In a documentary which talks about social media celebs, Paris, for the first time, talks about went in her mind when the incident took place. “It was like being raped,” she says.
“It felt like I'd lost part of my soul and been talked about in such cruel and mean ways. I literally wanted to die at some points. I was like, ‘I just don't want to live,’ because I thought everything was taken away from me. I didn't want to be known as that.”
