Paris Hilton reportedly “thinks Chris Brown is hot.”

The heiress and entrepreneur partied in Cannes at the Gotha nightclub with Chris and his girlfriend Karrueche Tran Wednesday night.

Chris spent the evenings with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna, whom he assaulted years ago, upon his arrival in the South of France earlier this week, but Paris didn’t seem to mind.

“Paris thinks Chris Brown is hot and really wants to hook up with him,” a source told Radar Online.

“She likes bad boys, and he is bad to the bone.”

Paris is said to be keen on keeping her sentiments under wraps for now.

“Paris has been pretending to be Karrueche’s BFF and Karrueche is loving the attention,” the source explained.

“This isn’t Paris’ first time at the rodeo and she knows how to use and manipulate other people to get what she wants.

“She isn't interested in having a public relationship with Chris, she thinks that would be really bad PR given his past and his reputation, but she is hot to trot for a steamy hook-up or two behind closed doors.”

Paris loved partying with Chris.

“This is how we party in the South of France! #GoodTimes last night @ChrisBrown! ! ??? (sic),” she wrote on Twitter along with a picture of her and Chris together.
