A source has revealed that Carter Reum, new husband to Paris Hilton, has a secret love child with reality star Laura Bellizzi. The information was revealed after the Reum-Hilton wedding.
According to the source, Carter has only seen his daughter once since she was born. While the millionaire does support her financially, they don’t have a typical father-daughter relationship. Laura and her daughter live in California.
“The people who this story matters to have known about it for 10 years. Carter supports this child. While he does not have a traditional father-daughter relationship with her, he has provided for her since she was born, and will continue to do so,” said Carter’s spokesperson.
Since having her daughter, Laura Bellizzi has kept out of the public eye. The reality TV star previously starred on VH1’s Secrets of Aspen. The show only lasted for a season, and Bellizzi hasn’t acted in anything else.
The Chicago native was in a short relationship with Mel Gibson and when she was pregnant in 2011 everyone thought it was his child. The actor denied paternity, and even Bellizzi backed up the actor’s claims.
She reportedly told TMZ that, “Mel Gibson is not the father of my child,” despite heavy gossip from family and friends about the subject. Around that time, many of her friends said the reality TV star lied and told them that Mel was actually the father.
A spokesperson for the star later said, “Any alleged ‘friends’ of Ms. Bellizzi claiming that she told them that Mr. Gibson ‘is the father’ of her child are either misinterpreting her desire for privacy surrounding the identity of the father, or are being 100% dishonest in a misguided effort to seek five seconds of notoriety and fame.”
When pregnancy photos of Laura first surfaced she appeared to be four to five months along and had just ended her relationship with Mel. She reportedly has three children from previous relationships.
Even Carter Reum denied the child was his, until a paternity test told another story. The millionaire officially signed documents claiming responsibility for the child back in 2020.
While reps for Paris haven’t commented on the love child information, many fans are wondering if Carter’s relationship with his daughter will change now that he’s married. Paris has said that she and Carter are ready to start a family. The star told Tamron Hall in August that she froze her eggs during the pandemic.
She also revealed that they have already picked out baby names and will be using IVF. She hopes to have boy and girl twins.
Paris said, “So, I’m really excited to just move on for the next step of my life and finally just have, like, a real life. I really do believe that having a family and having children is the meaning of life. I haven’t got to experience that yet because I don’t feel that anyone really deserved that love from me and now I’ve finally found the person who does, so I cannot wait for that next step.”
Sources close to Laura Bellizzi and her daughter said that the little girl became very “triggered” about the news coverage of her dad and Paris’ wedding. They said that all the girl wants is to be a part of her dad’s life, and she feels left out now that he is getting married and trying to start a new family.
“I cannot begin to describe the pain she feels,” the source said. “She is of an age now where she is cognizant and wants her paternal family to hear her and know her. He may not claim or love her, but she claims and loves him and his family.”
