Who’s the new man that Paris Hilton’s been pictured with over the past week?
According to the New York Post, his name is Alex Vaggo, and he’s a 22-year-old Swedish tourist who just happened to be in the right place at the right time.
The Post’s source says that Paris met the hot foreigner on the street near the USA Hostel in Hollywood.
The source tells the Post, “The hostel is $27 a night and they shove in six people to a room. But in the morning there are all the pancakes you can eat. Our friend introduced him to Paris and she immediately took a liking to him. He’s very hot. He’s living much better now.”
Paris’ rep tells the Post, “They are just friends.”
The Post also writes that the heiress is reportedly introducing Vaggo around to Ford Model scouts this week.
For a while in late summer, Paris had been seen out with ex-flame Stavros Niarchos, although the two haven’t been photographed together recently. Vaggo is not the first new man that she’s been linked to since her release from jail. In July, she was seen cuddling with 21-year-old Australian clothing entrepreneur Tyler Atkins in Malibu.
Last night, Paris showed up at an amfAR benefit in New York.
