Kat Von D Went Through The Same Abuse at the Same School as Paris Hilton Did

Kat Von D Went Through The Same Abuse at the Same School as Paris Hilton Did

Kat Von D is opening up about her experience at the Provo Canyon School in Utah, which is the same school Paris Hilton speaks about in her documentary, This Is Paris.

If you haven’t seen, Paris got candid about the kind of abuse she was subject to at the school when she was a teenager, and it seems Kat went through the same thing.

In her Instagram video, Kat revealed that she “spent those 6 traumatic months of my teenage years, only to leave with major PTSD and other traumas due to the unregulated, unethical and abusive protocols of this ‘school’ — and cannot believe this place is STILL OPERATING.”

She also thanked Paris for shining a light on the institution.

“Watching [Paris] talk about some of her past trauma going to this school that her parents sent her as a teenager. I don’t like to call them schools because they’re not schools they’re f***ing lockdown facilities. It just triggered so much s*** for me because it turns out I went to the same school.”

Kat continued, “I was sent to the same place and I was 15 when I was sent and I spent my 16th birthday in there. I was there for a total of six months and they were definitely the most traumatic six months of my life.”

Her own claims include being kidnapped from her bed and blindfolded before being brought to the facility in Utah.

She added, “I had no idea it was gonna end up being that I was trapped for six months at this pretty crazy, torturous awful place.”
