The 37-year-old heiress and the 33-year-old actor and model broke up weeks ago, according to a People source yesterday, Nov. 19. Hilton allegedly felt that the relationship wasn’t “right for her” after dating for about two years.


Though she did love Zylka, Hilton reportedly had cold feet and did not see a forever with him, a source told E! News in a Nov. 19 report. The couple also had problems over the past six months.

The January proposal happened atop the slopes of Aspen in Colorado, with Hilton overjoyed to receive a sizeable pear-shaped rock, which People valued at $2 million.


Last August, Hilton told People that their wedding date would be in 2019 after reports said the couple intended to have 11/11 (Nov. 11) nuptials. She explained that she had initially agreed to it because the numbers were special to her, but that both she and Zylka were booked with projects during the year.

However, another source said it seemed doubtful from the onset that the two would marry. They allegedly did not throw an engagement party nor had their parents met each other.

Despite this claim, Hilton did seem excited about getting married. She announced last April that she found a wedding gown with the help of sister Nicky Hilton. The month before, she said she wanted Los Angeles bakery Hansen’s Cakes to create her wedding cake as she had had the bakery’s cakes for her birthday since childhood.

Both parties have yet to officially confirm their split, though Hilton did post this telling quote attributed to Marilyn Monroe today, Nov. 20, on Instagram Stories: “I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go… and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”
