The 35-year-old socialite, who is currently single after splitting from Thomas Gross in April 2016, said she is "independent" and does not need a man, reported Female First.

 

"I love being single. Before, I could never be alone. I always needed a boyfriend. Now, I feel so independent and I am so happy with myself. I don't need anyone to validate my happiness," Hilton said.

 

The blonde beauty became famous by starring on "The Simple Life" alongside Nicole Richie but is now trying hard to get rid of her reality star status.
