family is delighted she split
from Doug Reinhardt, insisting The Hills
star was "riding on her coat-tails."
The hotel heiress ended her six-month romance with baseball player Reinhardt earlier this month and has since been linked to soccer player Cristiano Ronaldo
. And The Simple Life
star's relatives were ecstatic when they heard about the break-up - because they were suspicious of Reinhardt's motives for dating Hilton.
Her aunt, Kyle Richards, tells E! Online
, "The stories out there about our family not approving of their relationship are completely true. Doug was riding Paris' coat-tails. The break-up affected me in a good way. It's definitely time for Paris to move on."
And Paris' mom Kathy
wholeheartedly supports her daughter's decision to ditch Reinhardt: "I think Paris needs to be with someone who is a bit more mature, older and has their own thing."
