Willow, who first met Paris on the set of Jada Pinkett Smith’s TV show ‘Hawthorne,’ explained that they had a similar childhood, as they both grew up with famous parents and have similar interests and passions.

Paris went on to say that she thinks she suffers from standard PTSD, adding that she even flinches in panic when she hears a trash bag rustling.

The actress and singer has been open with her fans and followers about her mental health struggles, recently releasing a docu-series on Facebook Watch called Unfiltered, addressing her vulnerability and suicide attempts.

She also showed support for Paris Hilton after the heiress documented her struggles in boarding school, including physical and verbal abuse, encouraging fans to sign a petition on her Instagram account.

“As a girl who also went to a behavior modification ‘boarding school’ for almost two years as a teenager, and has since been diagnosed with PTSD because of it, and continue to have nightmares and trust issues, I stand with @ParisHilton and the other survivors,” she stated.
