Who is Paris Hilton's boyfriend, Carter Reum?

An actress, entrepreneur, model, singer, DJ, designer and socialite all in one, Paris Hilton has been a household name for close to two decades. 2003 was her break-out year in the United States, as it saw her star in the reality hit The Simple Life — alongside Nicole Richie — in addition to a sex tape. Hilton's fame boosted her to such levels that she hosted Saturday Night Live, authored a few books, and had a trademark catch phrase with "That's hot."

In recent years, Hilton has continued to DJ, model and design to great success. In 2018 alone she released a charting single ("I Need You"), launched a skincare line, modeled during New York Fashion Week, appeared in a documentary (The American Meme) and hosted a Viceland series. Her 2019 single "B.F.A. (Best Friend's Ass)" appears to have charted high on the dance charts of the U.S. and Belgian; Hilton's friend Kim Kardashian — and her butt — starred in the accompanying music video.

Career aside, Hilton has notably dated a lot of high-profile men. Her current relationship appears to be with Carter Reum, following a broken-off engagement with Chris Zylka. Here's what we know about Reum.

2. Reum has also found success as an author.

Reum and brother Courtney are the co-authors of the 2018 book Shortcut Your Startup: Speed Up Success With Unconventional Advice From The Trenches. Published by Jeter Publishing, the book received advance praise from the likes of Tony Robbins, Arianna Huffington, AOL co-founder Steve Case and TOMS Shoes founder Blake Mycoskie.

5. Reum has a social media presence.

Reum appears to have publicly-visible accounts on Twitter and Instagram. However, the Twitter account hasn't been updated by Reum since October 2015.

He primarily uses Instagram to post about business-related activity and high-profile appearances. While his Facebook account appears to be for people who know him, the publicly-available bio for his Facebook account is primarily focused on his professional responsibilities: "Founder of M13 & VEEV. Tech Investor. Former Goldman Sachs Investor Banker. Future Astronaut."

6. Reum and Hilton do not appear to have publicly interacted on social media.

In reviewing Reum's social media accounts, there are no publicly-available mentions of Hilton. Then again, Reum has only been tagged in content since he and Hilton began dating.

The last dozen photos on Hilton's Instagram account only show her, including a 2020 Golden Globes story. Similar postings appear on Hilton's official Facebook account, although none of there reference Reum.

Given the social media prowess of Hilton for over a decade, it will be interesting to see how things progress with this couple and whether or not they become more high-profile on social media as a couple in the near-future.
