Paris Hilton: ‘I’m Not Willing to Give Up My Career for Marriage’

Paris Hilton has explained her reasons for breaking off her engagement
to Greek shipping heir Paris Latsis–she’s not prepared to ditch her career
for marriage.

After just a four-month engagement, the 24-year-old hotel heiress broke off
wedding plans with Latsis, 22, because she didn’t want to rush into marriage
too quickly.

Hilton, who says she has movies “in the works” with Latsis explains, “I have
seen the breakups between people who love each other and rush into getting
married too quickly. I do not want to make that mistake.

“I’m still young and still have a very active career that I’m not prepared to
give up. I have worked very hard to get to where I am. Paris is a great guy and
we will handle this with dignity and respect.”

Meanwhile, Latsis’s father, Gregoris Kasidokostas, has declined to say why
the two broke up, but brands the wedding postponement “common sense,” adding,
“[Latsis] is young and he should wait [for marriage]. He should be patient.”

Hilton and Latsis first met as teenagers 10 years ago in a Monaco club, and
in December they embarked on a romance while skiing in Gstaad,
Switzerland, over the holidays.

The couple became engaged at the end of May, with Latsis giving Hilton a
24 carat, $5 million diamond engagement ring.
