Paris Hilton won't be walking down the aisle anytime soon.

E! News can confirm the heiress has ended her relationship with fiancé Chris Zylka

"Paris broke up with Chris a few weeks ago," an insider can confirm. "Their relationship moved really quickly, and she realized he wasn't right for her. She wishes him well and hopes they can remain friends."  

Zylka proposed to the socialite in January 2018 during a romantic ski trip. At the time, he got down on one knee and presented her with a $2 million engagement ring.

"So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life," Hilton wrote in an Instagram post at the time. "My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist."

While Hilton seemed to be in full wedding planning mode, fans suspected there could be trouble in paradise after the duo pushed back their wedding date earlier this year. Still, a source had told E! News the delay was due to their busy schedules.

"Paris had her heart set on an 11/11 wedding. That was her dream date. But there's just too much to do and between her work and travel schedule, not enough time to do it," another source told E! News at the time. "She is dead set on getting married so the wedding will happen. Just not as quickly as she had hoped. As of now, it's looking like a spring wedding instead."

Another insider told E! News the two weren't acting like the couple when they were spotted at the Maddox Gallery event in October.

"It was just awkward," the third source said. "No affection. He was holding her purse and talking to other people. She was talking to other people and seemed uninterested in engaging with him. They were there together, but did not act like a couple."

The two met an Oscars party eight years ago, but they didn't reconnect until 2015. It would be another two years before they made their relationship social media official

"I've never been surer of anything in my life," the former Simple Life star told E! News in 2017. "He's so incredible in every way. We've actually been friends for a really long time, like the past six years. We just now started being serious in the past few months and it's really just changed my life in so many ways and brought so much happiness to my life. I feel so safe and he's so special. We're best friends and we're together every minute. I don't know what else I could ask for. He's perfect for me."

Sadly, this isn't the first time either star has ended an engagement. Hilton ended her engagements to Jason Shaw in 2003 and to Paris Latsis in 2005, while Zylka broke off his engagement to Hanna Beth in 2015.
