Ten months have given Paris Hilton a fresh perspective on the man she once said was "perfect for me in every way." The great-granddaughter of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton has reportedly broken her engagement to actor Chris Zylka, who proposed on a January ski trip. "Paris broke up with Chris a few weeks ago" when "she realized he wasn't right for her," E! quotes an insider as saying. Hilton appears to reference the split in an Instagram post quoting Marilyn Monroe.

The couple initially planned to marry Nov. 11 before pushing the date to spring 2019, per E! While Hilton reportedly hopes the pair can remain friends, that may depend on what she does with the $2 million ring. Per TMZ, Zylka wants but hasn't asked for the 20-carat diamond returned. He's legally entitled to it under California law since Hilton was the one to call off the engagement—something she's done before. The 37-year-old split with former fiances Jason Shaw and Paris Latsis in 2003 and 2005, respectively, per E! (Rosie O'Donnell just got engaged.)
