Paris’s doc, which came out Sept. 14, 2020, went into grave detail about what the entrepreneur endured as a teen. In the trailer for the doc, Paris is shown taking off her makeup and crawling under the covers of her bed as she explains in a voice over, “I don’t even know who I am sometimes. I didn’t used to be that way.” She’s then seen in videos from her youth, as Paris admits, “Something happened in my childhood that I’ve never talked about with anyone.”

“The only thing that saved my sanity was thinking about who I wanted to become when I got out of there. I just created this brand and this persona and this character, and I’ve been stuck with her ever since,” the heiress goes on to explain, referring to her party girl image and “spoiled airhead” that she portrayed on her early aughts Fox reality series The Simple Life.
