Paris Hilton has credited her boyfriend Cy Waits with saving her life when a burglar entered her home last year (Oct10).
The socialite fears she wouldn't be alive today if Waits wasn't with her when an intruder charged into her home.
She says, "He's (Waits) my hero... This guy came in with two huge knives... and (Cy) stopped him."
The unnamed intruder was apprehended at Hilton's California home on 12 October (10) by her security team. Police were called and the man was taken into custody for questioning.
It was the second scare for the reality TV star in as many months - Nathan Lee Parada was arrested at her house in August (10) after allegedly attempting to break in while she was sleeping.
