The pair was meant to get married earlier this month.

E! News has confirmed Paris Hilton and Chris Zylka have ended their engagement.

An insider confirmed to the publication:

"Paris broke up with Chris a few weeks ago... Their relationship moved really quickly, and she realized he wasn't right for her. She wishes him well and hopes they can remain friends." 

Zylka proposed during a ski trip in January this year with a $2 million engagement ring.

In a since-deleted Instagram post, Paris wrote:

"So happy & excited to be engaged to the love of my life. My best friend & soulmate. Perfect for me in every way. So dedicated, loyal, loving & kindhearted. I feel like the luckiest girl in the world! You are my dream come true! Thank you for showing me that fairytales do exist."

Fans believed the couple may split after they pushed back their wedding date earlier this year. At the time, however, a source told E! the delay was due to their schedules.

"Paris had her heart set on an 11/11 wedding. That was her dream date. But there's just too much to do and between her work and travel schedule, not enough time to do it."

"She is dead set on getting married so the wedding will happen. Just not as quickly as she had hoped. As of now, it's looking like a spring wedding instead."

In October, an insider told the publication the pair wasn't acting like a couple when they were spotted together at a gallery event:

"It was just awkward... No affection. He was holding her purse and talking to other people. She was talking to other people and seemed uninterested in engaging with him. They were there together, but did not act like a couple."

The couple first met at an Oscars party eight years ago, but they didn't reconnect again until 2015. They then made their relationship Insta-official two years later.

Speaking with E! In 2017, Paris said:

"I've never been surer of anything in my life... He's so incredible in every way. We've actually been friends for a really long time, like the past six years. 

"We just now started being serious in the past few months and it's really just changed my life in so many ways and brought so much happiness to my life. I feel so safe and he's so special. 

"We're best friends and we're together every minute. I don't know what else I could ask for. He's perfect for me."

They've both previously been engaged to people in the past and haven't gone through with the weddings.
