The last time you may have heard about Paris Hilton and her love life was when she broke off her engagement to actor Chris Zylka about two years ago. Boy, time flies. However, Hilton just introduced her Instagram followers to her new beau, and it has many fans asking questions about where this relationship came from. Hilton posted to her 11 million followers this week a photo of her kissing Carter Reum who is an author and entrepreneur and founder of VEEV Spirits with his brother Courtney.
On the IG photo, Hilton captioned it, “Happy Anniversary my love. My favorite thing to do is make memories with you. Your kisses are magical.⚡️ I love being yours and knowing you’re mine. ??.” There doesn’t seem to be much mentioned in the post about what anniversary the two could be celebrating, but many are speculating the couple is celebrating a year together. While Hilton is usually known for dating celebrities, Reum is a celebrity in his own right, just in a different sector. Reum is seemingly very well-established in Hollywood, which is likely how he and Hilton were able to connect.
A source told E! News that Reum and Hilton “met through friends.” The source mentioned back in January, “Paris was with Carter Reum last night. He is a tech startup entrepreneur and investor and is the Gwyneth Paltrow circle of friends. He is known in Hollywood. They have been seeing each other for a little over a month.” Apparently the two spent the holidays together getting to know each other’s families, and then the pair went on to officially make their red carpet debut at a few Golden Globes afterparties.
Hilton was most recently linked to Zylka back in January 2018 after the pair became engaged in Aspen, Colorado. However, less than a year after becoming engaged, the pair officially called it off. Hilton explained, “it wasn’t the right fit.” Meanwhile, Hilton moved on with Reum, and the two are seemingly very happy together. Sources from the Globes afterparties explained that they two were “smiling at each other as she placed her hand on the back of his head and touching and rubbing his neck.”
Reum and his brother founded the vodka brand VEEV Spirits and eventually sold it in order to focus more on investments. Since launching their own investment firm, Reum has had his hand in major companies like Classpass, Snapchat, Pinterest, and Lyft, to name a few. Reum also adds author to his resume, with a book he co-wrote with his brother titled ‘Shortcut Your Startup: Speed Up Success with Unconventional Advice from the Trenches’. Hilton, meanwhile, has recently credited herself as being ahead of her time, and according to ‘Daily Mail’ has a net worth of $300 million.
