Paris Hilton and her Austrian boyfriend, Thomas Gross, have called it quits after a year of dating.
“They are both friends and remain close but with their busy work schedules and the long distance it just got too difficult,” sources close to the pair told Life & Style.
Paris, 35, who has built herself a global empire of fragrances estimated to be worth over $2.5 billion is an in-demand DJ traveling all over the world for her shows and running her business empire.
“Paris is very close with her family and her sister Nicky Hilton is about to have a baby. She really wants to be there for her and be an aunt. It broke her heart being so far away from family,” the insiders continued.
Friends of the couple know they met in Cannes, France in 2015 and spent the summer in Ibiza together when she performed as a DJ.
“They remain close friends and care for each other but work and the distance just got in the way. She will be back in Ibiza for her DJ residency all summer and he has to be in Switzerland for his work, it’s an impossible situation,” the sources added.
