On a 2013 episode of “Extra,” Hilton addressed the rumor that her and Jackson were an item, denying that she was ever involved with the man 23 years her senior.
“I heard that rumor, it’s the craziest rumor I’ve ever heard,” she said. “I have no idea, I knew him since I was born, my whole life, so I don’t know how they would come up with that.”
