Celebrity socialite Paris Hilton is terrified of the paparazzi and stalkers who make it impossible for her to live a normal life.

The HOUSE OF WAX beauty feels so threatened she has been forced to employ four bodyguards to protect her.

She says, "The paparazzi, they're scary. They pretty much live outside my house: they're so annoying.

"And stalkers. I come across them all the time."

And the hotel heiress is frightened that snappers and intrusive fans will damage her relationship with shy fiance and Greek shipping heir PARIS LATSIS.

She says, "My boyfriend hates it all: he's very low-key and he hates cameras and says the only bad thing about dating me is them."
