Paris Hilton is set to discuss a period of trauma from her childhood for the very first time in a new documentary on her YouTube channel.
In a clip that was released Tuesday, Paris, 39, is heard saying: ‘Something happened in my childhood that I’ve never talked about with anyone. I still have nightmares about it.’
The YouTube Originals documentary This Is Paris will see the hotel heiress talk frankly about the mental abuse she endured as a teenager while at boarding school in Utah, PEOPLE reports.

Per the report, the documentary has been described as uncovering ‘the hidden past of the international icon’ meaning Paris.
The description reads: ‘As Paris confronts the heartbreaking trauma that forged who she is today, this deeply compelling portrait tells the real story of a teenage girl desperate to escape into a fantasy and sheds new light on the insta-fame culture that Paris helped to create.’
Her sister Nicky Rothschild Hilton, 36, and their mother Kathy Hilton, 61, are also to appear in the film, which has been directed by Emmy-winning talent Alexandra Dean.
Speaking on The Talk earlier this year, Paris said about making the feature: ‘I started thinking about my past and what I’ve been through and realized just how much it’s affected my life and how I was holding on to so much trauma for so long.’
