Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson (born April 3, 1998; also known as Paris Jackson) is an American television personality and actress. She is the daughter of pop icon Michael Jackson.

Early life

Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson is the only daughter of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She has one older brother Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. and one younger half-brother Prince Michael Jackson II (also known as "Blanket"). She was born on April 3, 1998, in Los Angeles, California. Jackson was named after the French city she was conceived in and both her father and grandmother. Jackson was raised solely by her father, who received full custody rights following his divorce in 1999, although Rowe had stated it was her intention and agreed upon with Michael that he would raise and have custody of the children.[1] She grew up at Neverland Ranch with her siblings. Her father made longtime friends and actors Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin the godparents of Jackson and her brother Prince.

Following her father's death in 2009, her grandmother Katherine was made the permanent guardian of her, Prince and Blanket, while Rowe obtained visitation rights.[1] During her childhood, Jackson and her siblings' faces were covered with various masks and veils during outings they took with their father in his attempt to keep their identities a secret from the paparazzi, media and fans. It was later revealed that the children would wear the masks only when they were on outings with their father. This way, when they went on outings without him, they would not be recognized.

Jackson made her very first television appearance in the documentary, Living with Michael Jackson alongside her father and her brothers, although her and her brothers' faces were never shown. She was also portrayed by Brooklynn Proulx in the 2004 television biopic Man in the Mirror: The Michael Jackson Story.

Aftermath

On June 25, 2009, Jackson's father Michael died. On July 7, at her father's memorial service at the Staples Center, Jackson spoke through tears for the very first time about her father with her family onstage, in which she said, "I just want to say...Ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say I love him so much."

In 2010, Jackson and her brothers gave an interview for Oprah Winfrey alongside their grandmother Katherine and their cousins about life after her father's death. She and her brother Prince also accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 Grammy Awards on their father's behalf. She and her brother Prince became enrolled at the Buckley School, an exclusive private school in Sherman Oaks, California.[2]

In 2011, Jackson signed on to film the children's fantasy film Lundon's Bridge and the Three Keys, a story adapted from a book written by Dennis Christen. In May of 2012, Jackson made People Magazine's Most Beautiful list.

In the summer of 2012, Jackson became involved in a battle on Twitter involving her family when she first tweeted that she hadn't seen her grandmother Katherine in over a week and demanded to know where she had been. Security cameras at the Jackson home videotaped Paris getting into an altercation with her aunt Janet over Paris' cell phone. While it was alleged Janet had slapped Paris, both denied those claims.

In 2013, Jackson was depositioned in her father's wrongful death trial versus AEG and reunited with her biological mother, Debbie Rowe, in April.

On June 5, 2013, Jackson attempted suicide by swallowing 20 Motrin PM and cut her wrist with a meat cleaver, leaving behind a suicide note. [3] Following Jackson's suicide attempt by way of overdosing {failing to adhere to recommended dosages by the manufacturer} when using over the counter sleep aid, she has been reportedly recovering at therapeutic boarding school Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah. [4] She is currently staying in Utah for an unknown period of time.

After Jackson's suicide attempt, Rowe said during the AEG trial, "She feels like she has no life after Michael died. And she called me because she couldn't connect with Blanket, cause he was too young, Katherine, 'cause she was too old, and she was always fighting with Prince."
