New York: Paris Hilton, who has expanded her business by opening a store in Colombia, insists that she`s not a spoil brat.

The socialite headed to the South American country where on Wednesday she opened her 44th store, Paris Hilton Handbags and Accessories in one of the biggest shopping malls in Bogota, the Huffington Post reported.

The model also participated in a fashion show presenting her collection of handbags for Spring/Summer, where she wore a long black and white dress, while also showing one of her pieces.

But in case there was any doubt if this new venture was something she had earned, the entrepreneur took the opportunity to clarify that she has worked hard for everything she has.

"Because I come from a family like mine, many people assume I`m spoiled. But it is in fact the opposite. Since I was 15, I`m working, modeling and I have my own brand. This is something I`ve worked and created on my own, my parents didn`t give it to me," she said.

She is also expected to open new stores soon in Dominican Republic and Ecuador.
