Hilton opened up about the split in an interview with TV host George Lopez, revealing the former couple plans to stay friends.
She tells Lopez Tonight, "We're not together anymore. I love him and we remain really good friends... I feel like the relationship ran its course and we'll see what happens."
The socialite is also looking forward to the summer (11) as a single woman, adding to Us Weekly, "I've never been single in my life. I've always had a boyfriend. I've always been scared to be alone... I've never really got to know myself... I'm excited to get to know myself and spend time with my family and my sister and my girls (friends)."
