- Paris Jackson is Michael Jackson's daughter
- She posted birthday wishes for him online
- THIS is what she warned fans about
Michael Jackson's kids celebrated the King of Pop's birthday on Wednesday. Paris who is all grown up and 25 now, revealed something that will surprise a lot of Michael Jackson fans. In an Instagram video on what would have been Jackson's 65th birthday on Tuesday, Paris told the world that her father actually hated acknowledgment on his special day. It turns out, Michael didn't like all the special attention he would receive.
"Today’s my dad’s birthday, and back when he was alive, he used to hate anybody acknowledging his birthday, wishing him a happy birthday, celebrating it, nothing like that," she said.
Paris wants the haters to stop
The now singer and actress then shared that she's been chastised in the past by Jackson superfans for not posting her dad on social media. She had been criticized before for not mentioning her late father enough in her content. "It apparently means that you don’t love them, you don’t care about them," she said sarcastically.
"There have been times where I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday, and people lose their minds. They tell me to kill myself. And they’re basically measuring my love for my own father based off of what I post on Instagram." Paris was clearly fed up with the continual speculation and digging into her psyche!
Paris was sure to caution Jackson fans in the comments about further harmful messaging that has been a bit of a trend on celebrity posts in recent times. "Please don’t use a man you have never met as an excuse to abuse, manipulate, and harass his daughter (who you also have never met)," she captioned her post.
This week, Paris went on stage and opened for Incubus. She also shared a tribute to her dad saying, "he put 50 years of blood, sweat and tears and love and passion into doing what he did, so that I can stand up here onstage in front of you and scream into a microphone. I owe everything to him," she told fans.
While Paris is busy touring, her brothers Prince Jackson and Blanket Jackson made a rare appearance in Las Vegas Wednesday for a birthday celebration as well. And it looks like Michael Jackson's legacy will carry on uninterrupted because there is a film in the works, as reported by 'USA Today'.
Michael Jackson's nephew Jaafar Jackson will play him in a new biopic.
