Paris Jackson says she was a “princess” to her late father Michael Jackson.
The 18-year-old aspiring actress is the only daughter of the late musical icon – who passed away in 2009 aged 50, when Paris was just 11 – and has said she was treated like royalty when he father was alive as she was “perfect” in his eyes.
Speaking in the April issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine, Paris – who has brothers Prince, 20, and Blanket, 15 – said: “When I was a kid, I was with my dad and my two brothers. Growing up, I was treated as the favourite because I was the only girl. I was the princess; I was perfect in my dad’s eyes.”
And Paris previously claimed that the late ‘Thriller’ hitmaker was “99 percent” of her inspiration.
She said: “All of my inspiration. I would say 99 percent of my inspiration comes from him, because he has always been my world. He is my roots.”
The ‘Star’ actress also said she hopes to have the “strength” her father did.
When asked previously which one of her dad’s qualities she’d like to have, she added: “Definitely his strength. He was the strongest person I know and tried to do everything with a much love and kindness as possible.”
Meanwhile, her older brother Prince – real name Michael Joseph Jackson Jr. – admitted that whilst they were aware that their father was the King of Pop and one of the most famous artists in the world, it was always a surprise to him to see his fans become delirious with excitement when they encountered him as to them he was just their dad.
He said: “Even after we realised he was the King of Pop – even to this day, I don’t think it holds the same weight to us that it does to other people, because he was our father, our dad or daddy, whatever you want to call it.
“What blew my mind was when I saw these big muscle dudes fainting [around him] and having to be dragged out.”
