Paris Hilton Won’t Be Getting Married After All—Are You Surprised?

Paris Hilton is single again. The OG reality star briefly returned to the headlines with her engagement to Chris Zylka before they split for good. And it turns out she’s keeping the ring!

Different Worlds

Paris was reportedly tired of picking up the check, but there was more to it than that.

An inside source reports: “Most of her friends thought she would realize at some point that she was too good for him. They came from two different worlds.”

Although her time in the spotlight is mostly over, Paris still has a net worth of about $40 million. So you can see how it might be tough for her to find a partner willing to go dutch on their dates. Very few people on the planet have the same kind of wealth and luxurious lifestyle as the Hilton heiress.

Unhappy for a While

Paris’s friends spilled the tea to TMZ that she “hasn’t been happy in a while.” But Paris herself took to Instagram to shed more light on the sudden breakup. While dressed up as Marilyn Monroe (and surrounded by sparkles, because this is Paris Hilton) she quoted the famous blonde bombshell: “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right. You believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself. And sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

Well, that clears things up. The cryptic statement seems to imply that Chris was less than honest with her. Hopefully Paris will find happiness again, whether it’s in a relationship or as a singleton.

What About the Ring?

Chris proposed with a 20-carat, pear-shaped diamond that reportedly cost $2 million. Well, it would have cost anyone else that much. Paris apparently received the ring from her celebrity jeweler pal Michael Greene. And she’s definitely not giving it back, since she considers it to be hers.

Chris’s camp pushed back on that story, claiming that the actor—who was in such classic films as Shark Night 3D—has his own money. “Do your homework,” his rep told gossip outlets.

Wait, does that mean we have to actually watch Shark Night 3D?
