PARIS Jackson is the second child and only daughter of pop star legend Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe.
Paris made a surprise appearance on Facebook Watch’s Red Table Talk.
Who is Paris Jackson?
The only daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe, Paris was born in Beverly Hills, California, on April 3, 1998.
Rowe signed over full custody of Paris to her father following their 1999 divorce.
Paris began modeling after being named on People Magazine’s Most Beautiful list, and she later was featured on the cover of Rolling Stone magazine.
She would sign with IMG Models and has also appeared on the cover of such magazines as Vogue Brazil, Teen Vogue, and Harper’s Bazaar.
Paris also fronted the 2018 Calvin Klein Jeans campaign alongside Millie Bobby Brown, according to her IMG bio.
She revealed in a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone – after turning 18 – that it took her years to find peace in her life.
She admitted that she has tried to take her own life multiple times.
“They always say, ‘Time heals,’” she told the magazine.
“But it really doesn’t. You just get used to it.
“I live life with the mentality of ‘OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.’
“So going forward, anything bad that happens can’t be nearly as bad as what happened before.
“So I can handle it.”
Paris also has at least 50 tattoos, including a recently placed one on her neck.
What did she say on the anniversary of her father’s death?
Paris wrote “miss and love you every day. thank you for the magic” in an Instagram post on June 25.
The social media tribute includes photos of The King of Pop and father and daughter together.
She also recently shared never-before-seen footage of her late father ahead of the premiere of her docuseries, which will launch on Facebook Watch.
The six-part series will debut on June 30.
How is Paris following in her father’s footsteps?
Paris and her ex-boyfriend Gabriel Glenn released their debut EP, The Soundflowers, on June 23.
The docuseries, titled Unfiltered: Paris Jackson & Gabriel Glenn, will follow the band as it attempts to establish an identity.
“A lot of our music, some of the songs on the EP and some of the songs that have yet to come are about pain,” Jackson said in a statement, according to Billboard.
“I’m sure to many it will come off as emo and sad, and that’s OK.
“But my hope is that it brings comfort to those who feel the way I did when I wrote the songs, especially ‘Geronimo.’
I’d like for the listeners who resonate with the lyrics to know that they are not alone. And that it gets better.”
Paris says Geronimo, which she wrote when she was 15, was fueled by loss and heartbreak, according to Billboard.
She added: “It feels good to know that people will hear our music and see me as I am.”
“This is the first opportunity I’ve been able to share my journey in my own way.”
When did Michael Jackson die?
The Billie Jean and Beat It singer went into cardiac arrest and died at his Los Angeles home on June 25, 2009.
The superstar performer was 50 years old.
Jackson died of acute propofol and benzodiazepine intoxication.
Conrad Murray, his personal physician, was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for improperly administering the drugs that led to Jackson’s death.
Murray would serve time in prison.
Jackson was an iconic performer who had dozens of hit songs, including Bad, Thriller, Smooth Criminal, Dangerous, and The Way You Make Me Feel.
What did Paris Jackson say on Red Table Talk?
During an interview with Red Table Talk on June 16, Paris opened up about her struggles with mental health, suicidal ideation and coming out to her religious family.
“A lot of people do feel regret when they try and attempt suicide,” Paris said.
“There have been times where I did and times where I didn’t, where I was upset that it didn’t work. But I can say, several years later, that I’m really grateful that it didn’t. Things have gotten better.”
She also said people told her to “kill [herself] every day.”
Paris said that she ultimately came to the “morbid” realization that it “just wasn’t meant to be.”
“Just like, ‘OK, I’ve tried and tried and tried, and it’s just not working, ‘Maybe it’s just not my time, and that sucks.’”
Paris continued by explaining to Jada Pinkett Smith that she’s found ways to cope with depression.
“I experienced self-love for the first time in my entire life,” the 23-year-old said.
“It was this really corny moment between me, myself and the mirror… It was so intense. Just a lot of gratitude. It took a really long time to get to that point.”
Paris continued to pour out on the talk show, by opening up about her struggle to come out to her family.
She explained how she’s “still kind of figuring it out. But I’ve gotten to a point where I respect them, and I have love for them. I respect their beliefs. I respect their religion.”
Paris explained how over time she and her mother have maintained a relationship.
“It’s cool, like, getting to know her, seeing how similar we are,” Paris explained.
“Getting into what kind of music she likes — she really likes country and folk — I send her some of the stuff I’m working on… We look a lot alike.
It’s just cool having her as a friend. It’s very chill, which I love, that’s the perfect word to describe it.”
How many children does he have?
Jackson has three children, including Paris, son Prince Michael Jackson II, and Michael Joseph Jackson Jr.
Prince Michael, also known as Blanket, is now 18, and Michael Jr, also known as Prince, is 23.
