Paris Hilton has apologized for her controversial remarks about the women who have accused Donald Trump of sexual assault that appeared in a recently published Marie Claire profile, claiming what she said in the interview was "misapplied nearly a year later". Because a lot of women, I've seen, like him because he's wealthy and he's charming and good looking, so I feel like a lot of these girls just made the story up. "They were part of a much longer story and I am regretful that they were not delivered in teh way I had intended". The singer ended her statement with an apology to those who took offense and vowed to continue helping girls and women find their voice to speak up for their rights.
"They want to get money or get paid to not say anything or get a settlement when nothing really happened", she told the outlet.
"It's really hurtful, because my whole life I really looked up to Princess Diana, all these elegant, incredible women, and I feel like [Salomon] just took that all away from me", she said.
The "Raising Helen" actress explained that she was just talking about her life experiences and never meant to cause controversy for something she said nearly a year ago. She added that she thought he was "so nice, so respectful, and sweet" and that she didn't believe the women who were accusing then candidate Trump of sexual assault. "So I don't believe any of that".
Paris regrets ever meeting her ex, telling the magazine, "I wish I had never met him".
In the interview, Hilton clarifies that she never voted for Trump even though reports said otherwise. I didn't really pay attention to it. "I don't believe it".
"I've heard guys say some pretty insane things", Hilton said in apparent defence of the now-US President. So I think that when someone doesn't realise they're being filmed or recorded, they say things. Especially with a guy.
Carmon's screenshot has Hilton quoted saying, "I've heard guys say some pretty insane things".
The socialite - who was slammed for brushing off the women who accused President Trump of sexual assault and harassment as "opportunists" - apologized Thursday and insisted she didn't mean for her controversial remarks to come across the way they did. I'm not what people think.
