The past came back to haunt Paris Hilton who is currently under fire for defending Donald Trump in her Marie Claire interview carried out in November 2016. The singer-actress, who claimed to be a feminist, suggested that women who alleged the POTUS of sexual assault are "just trying to get attention and get fame" and even labeled them "opportunists."

Hilton defends U.S. president from sexual assault allegations

"They want to get money or get paid to not say anything or get a settlement when nothing really happened," she told the magazine. "So I don't believe any of that.

And I'm sure they were trying to be with him, too."

Paris Hilton went on to claim that a lot of women like Donald Trump because of his wealth, charm, and looks. "So, I feel like a lot of these girls just made the story up. I didn't really pay attention to it. I heard a couple of things about it. I don't believe it," she added.

When asked about the president's "grab them by pussy" remarks, the "Stars Are Blind" artist seemingly suggested that it was a normal thing for a guy to say "crazy" things especially when they are unaware that they were being filmed or recorded.

"I've heard guys say the craziest things ever cause I'm always around guys and I listen to them speak. So, I definitely don't think he would just say that," the actress explained.

She insisted that Donald Trump has always been "respectful" and "sweet," and commended him for being "an incredible businessman." Hilton added that she has known the POTUS since she was a little since he was a family friend.

The 36-year-old actress did not even mind when the U.S. president allegedly said that he has watched her sex tape.

Shortly after the Marie Claire issue was released, Paris Hilton drew flak for her seemingly "victim-blaming" remarks on Donald Trump's sexual assault allegations.

Singer apologizes for her 2016 magazine interview

The "Raising Helen" actress explained that she was just talking about her life experiences and never intended to cause controversy for something she said almost a year ago.

Paris Hilton also reiterated her advocacy to empower women and help them find the confidence trust in themselves.

She continued and confessed that she was "hurt" by how her comments were taken out of context, explaining that what was published was "part of a much larger story" that was not delivered in the way she had intended. The singer ended her statement with an apology to those who took offense and vowed to continue helping girls and women find their voice to speak up for their rights.
