Paris Hilton has a new love in her life, and this time it’s not another pet.
The 31-year-old socialite was recently spotted in Hawaii with her new boyfriend, Calvin Klein model River Viiperi, who is 10 years younger.
According to Celebuzz.com, Viiperi was born in Spain’s “party capital” Ibiza, making him a good match for club-loving Hilton. Celebuzz reports too that Viiperi, whose Finnish mother was also model, owns a blog titled “Never Back Down,” which “dispels the common myths about the world of the male model.”
Whether it's true love or just a flavor of the week, Hilton’s new relationship with Viiperi is positive publicity compared to the controversy she stirred just last week. Her comments about gay men forced her to come up with a quick apology, which according to TMZ was posted on GLAAD’s website saying “gay people are the strongest and most inspiring people I know.”
Previously, TMZ had reported Hilton was secretly caught in tape in a New York City cab ride, allegedly making offensive comments toward gay men, including “Gay guys are the horniest people in the world… they’re disgusting. Dude, most of them probably have AIDS."
But now Hilton seems to be putting the slurs behind her and enjoying her time with Viiperi, rumors she sealed with a tweet on Sunday saying “Another day in Paradise with @RiverViiperi. #LifeIsBeautiful.”
