Hotel industry and court lawsuit

Nicky delved into the hotel industry, initially partnering with investors. However, legal disputes arose when she objected to using her name, leading to a federal court lawsuit against her partner in 2007. In turn, she faced a countersuit for breach of contract.

Nicky Hilton's familial connections position her at the intersection of two of the world's wealthiest families. As an heiress to the Hilton family's century-old hotel empire, she descends from Conrad Hilton, who, with a $5,000 investment in 1919, grew the business significantly, acquiring iconic properties like the Waldorf Astoria. However, most of the family fortune was directed to the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation, a charitable entity, per Conrad's wishes. The Hilton family lost control of the company when Blackstone bought it for $26 billion in 2007. Through her marriage to James Rothschild, Nicky Hilton is also tied to the Rothschild family, known for its historic wealth originating from international banking established by Mayer Amschel Rothschild in the 1700s. Despite a decline in wealth in the 20th century, the family remains involved in diverse industries, contributing to an estimated combined net worth ranging from $400 billion to potentially $1 trillion. The Rothschilds are recognized for their influence and affluence, even as their affairs are often veiled in secrecy.

In 2013, reports surfaced that Nicky Hilton sold an apartment in Hollywood Hills for $2.625 million. Notably, she acquired the property in 2007 for an estimated $2.8 to $3 million, resulting in a notable financial loss on her initial investment.

Nicky Hilton's initial marriage in 2004 was a spontaneous Las Vegas affair with childhood friend Todd Meisner but it ended in annulment after just three months. In 2011, at socialite Petra Ecclestone's wedding, Nicky Hilton met James Rothschild, leading to a relationship that culminated in their engagement in 2014. Their opulent 2015 wedding at Kensington Palace featured Hilton arriving in a $77,000 Valentino Haute Couture gown. Paris Hilton (her sister), serving as the maid of honor, described the event as a "fairy tale." The couple welcomed their first child in 2016 and a second in 2017.
