Paris Jackson, daughter of the late great Michael Jackson, opened up for the first time in an interview with Rolling Stone magazine.
Paris spoke about being sexually assaulted at age 14 by a complete stranger, “I don’t wanna give too many details. But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me, and, at the time, I didn’t tell anybody.”
She touched on having depression and attempting suicide multiple times, “I was crazy. I was actually crazy. I was going through a lot of, like, teen angst. And I was also dealing with my depression and my anxiety without any help.”
The parts of the interview that most people are taking interest are Paris identifying as black and her belief that her father was murdered.
“I consider myself black. Dad would look me in the eyes and he’d point his finger at me and he’d be like, ‘You’re black. Be proud of your roots.’ And I’d be like, ‘OK, he’s my dad, why would he lie to me?’ So I just believe what he told me. ‘Cause, to my knowledge, he’s never lied to me.”
She firmly believes that Michael Jackson’s death was no accident nor suicide. “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.”
Paris Jackson also spoke to Rolling Stone about growing up with Michael, not having her mother around at a young age, modeling, her taste in music, as well as other things.
