As the second kid and second child overall of mega-superstar artist Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson’s life was anything but typical. She was frequently forced to appear in public while wearing a mask, and she was unable to go anywhere without a swarm of paparazzi following closely behind her. She was only allowed to make a very limited number of public appearances and spent the majority of her time being concealed and guarded.
Since Michael’s passing in 2009, Paris has made more frequent public appearances and has been a guest on a variety of talk shows, where she has discussed her peculiar upbringing and her experiences with being bullied at school.
In 2012, Paris appeared on the Most Beautiful People list published in the magazine “People,” and in 2017, she was featured on the cover of the magazine “Rolling Stone.” Since 2017, Paris has held the position of ambassador for the Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation.
Paris Jackson was born on April 3, 1998, in the city of Beverly Hills, California. Her full name is Paris-Michael Katherine Jackson. Her mother, Debbie Rowe, was a dermatology nurse. Following her divorce from Michael Jackson in 1999, she gave up all parental rights, and Paris, her older brother Michael Joseph (also known as Prince), and their half-brother Prince Michael (also known as Blanket) were raised by their father on Neverland Ranch.
Michael counted both Macaulay Culkin and Elizabeth Taylor among his closest friends, and he chose them to be Paris’ godparents. Katherine, Michael’s mother, was awarded custody of her son and daughter when Michael, their father, passed unexpectedly under sad circumstances on June 25, 2009. Paris received her education at the Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, where she participated in extracurricular activities such as cheerleading, softball, and flag football.
A children’s novel written by Dennis Christen served as the inspiration for the 2011 fantasy movie “Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys,” which starred Paris as the main character.
The movie was supposed to be the first installment in a franchise consisting of five films, but it was never made. In March of 2017, Jackson secured a modeling contract with IMG Models and also appeared as a guest star on four episodes of the Fox series “Star.”
During that same year, she was recognized as an Emerging Talent by Daily Front Row and garnered a nomination for the Teen Choice Award in the category of Choice Model. Her first appearance on the big screen was in the crime comedy “Gringo,” which was released in 2018, and starred Charlize Theron, David Oyelowo, and Joel Edgerton.
She is also scheduled to play Jesus in the film “Habit,” and she will have a role in “The Space Between.” She had a recurring role in the 2019 season of the horror anthology series “Scream” that airs on VH1, which was created by Wes Craven. In addition, Paris has made guest appearances on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” “The X Factor,” and “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” and she has also been featured in music videos for Steel Panther, Nahko and Medicine for the People, The xx, and Thirty Seconds to Mars.
In the year 2018, Jackson and Gabriel Glenn came together to form the folk band The Soundflowers, and on June 23 of that same year, they played their very first show at Canyon Sessions. Paris contributes vocals and ukulele to the band, and in June of 2020, they published an EP under their own name.
After the passing of her father, Paris began engaging in self-inflicted injury, and by the time she turned 15, she was addicted to intravenous narcotics and had made repeated attempts to take her own life. She attended Diamond Ranch Academy in Utah, which is a therapeutic boarding school, for her second and third years of high school.
Jackson was taken to the hospital in March 2019, and despite the fact that TMZ reported that she had attempted suicide once more, Paris rejected the report, and a source close to her confirmed that she merely had an accident at home. Paris also stated that Jackson had attempted suicide in the past.
Prior to supposedly beginning a relationship with bandmate Gabriel Glenn in 2019, Paris dated soccer player Chester Castellaw in 2015 and musician Michael Snoddy from 2016 to 2017. During the episode of “Unfiltered: Paris Jackson & Gabriel Glenn” that aired on Facebook Watch in 2020, Paris Jackson revealed that she has “dated more women than men.” In 2018, Jackson was able to get a temporary restraining order against Nicholas Stevens, a 23-year-old guy who had been following her and harassing her. Nicholas Stevens had been stalking Jackson.
