Paris Hilton is dating the former boyfriend of 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Chloe Sims.
The 34-year-old socialite has apparently been seeing British multi-millionaire Joe Fournier, 32, for a few months, but sources insist it is just a "casual" relationship, despite both currently partying in Cannes, and staying at the Carlton hotel.
Paris was spotted 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.
Paris has brought boyfriends to Cannes in the past, including River Viiperi in 2013, but she has denied she is with Joe, saying men "obstruct" her from having fun, although she admitted that she "loves British guys".
Speaking to the Mirror newspaper, she said: "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."
Last week, Joe described Paris as a "close friend", and on Monday (18.05.15), he gifted the hotel heiress a watch, which she took to Instagram to show off, calling Joe a "charming British gentleman".
She said: "Thank you @JoeFournierClub @Bonbonniere_London for the incredible present! You are such a charming British gentleman! Loves it!"
