Who is Paris Dylan aka Paris Dunn?
Paris Dunn or Paris Dylan is a popular American social media star, who is probably best known for appearing on the pages of prominent men’s magazines such as Playboy and Maxim. Although being most widely recognized as an Instagram star, on which she has gathered over 51,000 followers, Paris is probably most famous for being in a relationship with the 48-years-older American pop singer and music star – Don McLean.
Early Life and Bio
Paris was born under the zodiac sign of Pisces on the 21st February 1994, in California, USA, and apart from being of American nationality, she is of white ethnicity. She is the older daughter of Suzi and a former professional racing driver and the owner of the Jack Crone Racing – Jack Crone. Paris has a younger sister named Courtney who decided to follow their father’s foot steps and is a racer. Despite her huge popularity on social media networks, Paris hasn’t revealed any relevant info about her early life or her educational background.
Paris came into the limelight in 2011 at the age of 17, for a very unusual reason – as a catfishing victim! Namely, at that time, young Paris got in touch with the 16-years-older professional National Basketball Association (NBA) player Chris Andersen via Facebook. What started as a simple chat later led to everyday communication through emails and texts, including the exchange of nude selfies. Believing that she was a 21-year-old, Chris invited Paris to visit him in Denver, where the supposed ‘romantic encounter’ took place.
After landing in Denver and meeting Andersen in person for the first time, they spent a weekend at his house in Larkspur.
The story caught the mass media’s attention when he was arrested for possible child molestation, while the media later released a story mentioning even a rape case. In the meantime, Paris was communicating with Andersen’s alleged and self-proclaimed friend named Tom Taylor, who steadily pressured her with a variety of unusual inquiries, including requesting information about Chris as well as the photos of her.
The whole story escalated further when Taylor started to threaten young Paris for not obeying his requests. On the other hand, her mother was pressuring Andersen, requesting a paycheck of $5,000 for her daughter’s ‘damages caused by their illicit relationship’. At this point, police became heavily involved, and soon after it was discovered that Tom Taylor is actually Shelly Chartier, and that she was the one who set up the fake accounts on behalf of Paris and Andersen, communicating with each other separately, and serving as a middle man in their communication, hoping that eventually she could blackmail both of them.

Additionally, Paris’ mother’s requesting $5.000 from Andersen was also her infamous deed. After being arrested and sentenced to 18 months of prison, police uncovered that Chartier has a long history of similar frauds, setting up a vast number of fake celebrity accounts.
Paris got a chance to cast some light on this twisted catfishing experience in 2017, when she appeared in several television talk shows such as MTV’s “Catfish” and ABC’s “20/20”.
Christopher Claus Andersen – ‘Birdman’ – was born on the 7th July 1978, in Long Beach, California.
Apart from being of white ethnicity and American nationality, Chris is also of Danish ancestry. After honing his professional skills in NBA minor leagues, in 2001 he became a member of the Denver Nuggets for which he played ’til 2004. After playing for the New Orleans Hornets for the following two seasons, in 2006 he faced a two-year full suspension from the NBA for violation of the league’s drug policy. In 2008 he returned to the Nuggets, while from 2013 to 2016 Andersen played for the Miami Heat with which he won the 2013 NBA Championship title.
In 2016 he was briefly a member of the Memphis Grizzlies before joining the Cleveland Cavaliers for season 2016/2017, where he finished his professional career.
Currently, her official Instagram profile – @parisdylan550 counts over 510,000 followers. Due to her stunning appearance, as a model Paris has appeared on the pages of several of the most popular men’s magazines such as Playboy, The Chive as well as Maxim.

Since November 2016, Dunn is in a romantic relationship with the 49-years-older American musician, singer and songwriter Donald ‘Don’ McLean, who is probably most widely known for his 1971 hit single “American Pie”.
Despite the huge age gap, judging by their mutual pictures from their numerous travels, Paris and Don are quite a happy couple.
Donald ‘Don’ McLean III was born on the 2nd October 1945, in New Rochelle, New York State, and apart from being of American nationality, also has some Scottish origin through his father’s as well as some Italian descent through his mother’s side.
Don’s career began in 1969 when he released his debut album “Tapestry”, and the big breakthrough occurred in 1971 when he released his ‘magnum opus’ – the hit single “American Pie” which peaked as No. 1 not only on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, but its Easy Listening Chart as well. Since then McLean has released 19 studio albums in total, including the most commercially successful ones “Homeless Brother” (1974), “Chain Lightning” (1978) and most recently “Botanical Gardens” (2018).
Sources have estimated that the total of Paris Dunn’s net worth, speaking as of late 2020, revolves around the total of $500,000, primarily acquired through her modeling endeavors.
