Society girl Paris Hilton is sick of the attention she's attracted over her sex tape with ex-love RICK SOLOMON - and "desperately needs a holiday".

The hotel heiress has been heavily featured in the news in past weeks following the scandal over the video tape which reportedly shows her and Solomon having sex before his marriage to actress SHANNEN DOHERTY - and the strain of the spotlight is beginning to show, according to pals.

One says, "Paris thinks everyone is against her right now and does not understand why people seem so intrigued by her. She feels people focus more on her than on her sister NICKY, and has been really fed up about the last few weeks and desperately needs a holiday.

"Paris wants to look to the future and just get on with her life. And at the moment she wants peace and quiet."
