Socialite Nicky Hilton, heiress to the Hilton hotel fortune with elder sister Paris, is seeking to annul her 2-month-old marriage to money manager Todd Meister, Us Weekly magazine reported on Wednesday.
Hilton, 21, and Meister, 33, tied the knot at a Las Vegas wedding ceremony on Aug. 15.
But Us Weekly said Hilton was seen at a political fund-raiser and a nightclub earlier this month without her wedding band and that the couple actually split several weeks ago.
“They’re working on an annulment,” the magazine quoted one unnamed source as saying. “Nicky and Todd remain the best of friends, but she is 21, and it’s just not the right time in her life for her to be married. He lives in New York; she’s in L.A.”
Other friends told the magazine that the relationship between the two, who have known each other since she was a teenager, had been essentially platonic.
“When they got married, they were a great couple,” one source told Us Weekly. “But it was more like they were best friends. It wasn’t like a tear-each-other’s-clothes-off kind of thing.”
Nicky and Paris Hilton, 23, who stars in the Fox reality show “The Simple Life,” made headlines together in August when the Hollywood home they shared was burglarized.
