PARIS HILTON'S LOVE LIFE IS ... NOT SO SIMPLE

Published on: January 12, 2004

Looks like Paris is burning for a backstreet romance.

Sexy hotel heiress Paris Hilton and Backstreet Boy Nick Carter were snapped in a strenuous bit of lip-locking in Beverly Hills.

The action took place in an alleyway parking area the day before New Year's Eve.

The singer hunk and the star of "The Simple Life" -- plus an infamous X-rated home video -- tried to avoid curiosity seekers by walking to Nick's car from separate directions.

But they quickly jumped into the car and spent some private time together before emerging and giving in to a bumper-to-bumper passionate public display.

Nick then walked Paris to her car and she took off for home while he headed up the coast to Malibu.

Paris indulged in the auto-erotic experience with Carter despite the fact that she reportedly has a new beau, model Lucas Babin. She's also recently romanced Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher and Trae Lindley, the Arkansas teen Paris swiped from his fiancee while shooting "The Simple Life."

At the Paris Hilton there's always a vacancy!
