On June 25, 2009, Michael Jackson died under curious circumstances at his rented mansion in Los Angeles. The 50-year-old music legend was administered propofol, lorazepam, and midazolam by his personal physician Conrad Murray, which caused his early demise. The Los Angeles County Coroner would later rule that Jackson’s death was a homicide, and Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Now in her first in-depth interview, the King of Pop’s daughter Paris Jackson tells Rolling Stone that she believes her father was murdered.
When asked if her father was murdered she responds, “Absolutely.”
Paris elaborates on her claim:
“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.”
When she is asked who would want to kill Jackson she responds, “A lot of people.” Paris said her dad “would drop hints about people being out to get him.” She added, “And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day.'”
Paris was only 11-years-old when her father passed away. Now the 18-year-old wants revenge or justice, “Of course. I definitely do, but it’s a chess game. And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
Paris reminisced about her dad, and remembered him as a “kick ass cook” who “cussed like a sailor.”
“He is my father,” to dismiss the speculation that he was not her biological father. “He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.”
“I consider myself black,” Paris told Rolling Stone, and said that he 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.'”
Paris has many tattoos paying tribute to her late father including one that says, “FAITH, TRUST AND PIXIE DUST,” the cover of the “Dangerous” album, the “Bad” logo, and the words “QUEEN OF MY HEART” in her dad’s handwriting from a letter he wrote her. She also has tattoos honoring John Lennon, David Bowie, Prince, Van Halen and, the word MÖTLEY on her inner lip (her boyfriend has CRÜE in the same spot).
After bouts with depression, which caused her to attempt suicide in 2013, she is now sober and pursuing a career in modeling and acting.
