Richard "Rick" Allan Salomon (born January 24, 1968) is an American socialite, film producer, celebutante, and online gambling website owner known for his relationships with various female celebrities, including Elizabeth Daily, Shannen Doherty, Paris Hilton, and Pamela Anderson.
Salomon was born in Neptune, New Jersey, the son of a former executive vice president at Warner Bros., Robert Jess Salomon. He grew up in Wayside, New Jersey. Salomon has produced three films including the 2007 comedy film Who's Your Caddy? (2007) and owned an online gambling site.
In 2004, a sex tape featuring Salomon and then-girlfriend Paris Hilton was leaked onto the Internet. Shortly after the tape leaked, Salomon filed a lawsuit against the company distributing the tape and the Hilton family, whom he accused of tarnishing his reputation by suggesting that he had exploited Hilton. Salomon further claimed in his $10 million suit that representatives of the Hiltons tried to discourage media outlets from playing excerpts of the tape by saying that Hilton was underage when the tape was made (which would have made showing the tape illegal), and were attempting to crush him to preserve the image they had created for her. Hilton later sued the company that released the tape, Kahatani Ltd., for $30 million for violation of privacy and emotional distress.
