There is always a fun hook-up in Cannes, and this year our film festival spies discover Paris Hilton is dating the former boyfriend of TOWIE star Chloe Sims.
We didn’t see that coming.
Paris, 34, has apparently been seeing multi-millionaire Joe Fournier, 32, for a few months, but sources insist it is just a “casual” relationship.
They are both partying in Cannes, and staying at the Carlton hotel.
3am chatted to Paris at Bagatelle Beach, where she told us: “I love British guys. I miss my dogs, though. My bed feels so empty without them. They are better than any man.
“You know, I am a real lady. I can’t just let any man in my bed.”
Dogs, on the other hand, fine.
Paris is a Cannes veteran who brought her then-boyfriend River Viiperi along to the festival in 2013.
But now she says: “When I have come with boyfriends before they have always obstructed me from having fun.
“Now I feel really free, I do what I want, when I want. I love British guys.
“I’m with my girlfriend here – we are wing ladies to each other.”
Sorry, Paris, but we spotted you having a cosy lunch with Joe, a former personal trainer who has worked with Madonna and Gwyneth Paltrow.
The nightclub boss dated Chloe in 2013, but they split after a few months when he was pictured on a boat off St Tropez in the South of France with glamour model Leilani Dowding, 35.
Chloe said she was “heartbroken” when she and Joe broke up.
Last week, Joe described Paris as a “close friend”, and Paris gushed on Instagram: “You are such a charming British gentleman.”
Paris, who was already on her fourth outfit change of the day when 3am met up with her, passed on some of her favourite tips for pulling a hot homme in Cannes.
She tells us: “My new perfume is good because it has an aphrodisiac so it makes the guys want you even more.”
Seems to be doing the trick for you anyway, Paris.
