Paris Hilton's model man

Paris Hilton’s new boyfriend has been identified as model Josh Upshaw.

The hotel heiress and 28-year-old Ralph Lauren model Josh were photographed kissing on the beach in Malibu, California, on Saturday. While the pair looked very much in love as they frolicked in the sands, they only met two nights before as they attended the DT Model Management anniversary party at West Hollywood restaurant Pump.

Despite Paris having yet to officially confirm she has split from long-term boyfriend River Viiperi, sources claim the pair parted ways a ‘while ago’.

“He’s so nice and sweet,” the source explained. Continue →
