Celebrity news has just learned that PARIS HILTON‘s young boyfriend RIVER VIIPERI suffered a bone-deep cut on his knee after a horrible ski accident.

Not that Paris was too worried about him. As you can see, she still found it to be a good photo op…

Paris Hilton‘s 32nd birthday vacation with her young model boyfriend River Viiperi in Lake Tahoe last week ended with a trip to the hospital and a very deep wound on the latter’s knee area (see the gruesome photo below).

The couple documented the terrible ordeal on Twitter and Pheed, starting with a photo of Viiperi in a stretcher while the hotel heiress waited (and posed for a picture) out in the snow until they can be transported to the hospital.

Hours later, Paris tweeted:

“Just got out of the hospital with River Viiperi. He was doing a high jump while skiing and the ski sliced in to his leg! 19 stitches! Oww!”

She continued on her Pheed:

“Such a scary day on the slopes today. After seeing the gash on River Viiperi‘s leg, I almost passed out. I have never seen a cut that deep in my life. He is so brave, I can’t even imagine the pain he went through today.”

Indeed, the cut was that deep, as seen in the gruesome photos that he shared to his followers. It came with the warning caption:

“NOT for weak stomaches [sic]!! A little something of what happened to me today while skiing. 19 stitches.”

An insider close to the couple revealed to Us Weekly that River didn’t feel the wound at first.

“A ski went into River‘s leg when he fell. He got up and kept skiing, but then felt that his whole leg was wet. You could almost see the bone.”

The source added:

=”He’ll have minimal scarring. He will be on crutches for two months because it’s in an awkward place in his knee.”

Viiperi also showed his appreciation for his famous girlfriend, who stood by his side the whole time despite being grossed out by his gash. He tweeted along with a photo of them together in the hospital:

“Back in La La Land safe and sound thanks to my gorgeous blondie always taking such good care of me. Thank you for being there for me my Love, your the best girlfriend in the world! I’m so lucky to have you!”
