(Newser) – Who knew? The apparently always-bored Paris Hilton is still deeply upset about a sex tape of her recorded by a former boyfriend, according to an MTV documentary about the professional camera hog. "It's something that haunts me to this day," said the socialite. "It's embarrassing." On the tape, Paris has desultory sex with former lover Rick Salomon, breaking off at one point to talk on her cell phone.

Salomon sold the short video, which was widely distributed as A NIght in Paris. "I was humiliated, embarrassed and in shock," Hilton told the Sun. "It was definitely very painful. When you trust someone and love someone, for them to do that to you, it's really hard." Paris is receiving a percentage of profits from the video.
