Paris Jackson has decided to say it all.
The daughter of the King of Pop was invited by her friend Willow Smith, also a “daughter of”, to talk about her life in the spotlight, but also about her relationship with the members of the Jackson clan and with her mother, Debbie Rowe.
The 23-year-old young woman, who has never hidden the psychological disorders from which she has suffered for years, spoke in particular of the shock of her father's death in 2009, when she was 11 years old.
"How did you manage to keep moving forward after losing your father?" Willow Smith asked him in the latest episode of
Red Table Talk
, on Facebook. “I don't know, it happened like that. I was so young. I was just going with the flow and I didn't really understand what was going on, so I did what I was told to do… I didn't really have any advice, ”revealed Paris Jackson, who did several suicide attempts during his adolescence.
“A lot of people have regrets when they try to kill themselves, like a last minute regret.
There were times that it did and times that it didn't, I was upset that it didn't work.
But I can say, several years later, that I'm really thankful that it didn't work out.
Things have improved, ”she said.
For the young woman, who speaks openly about her fluid sexuality, making herself understood by the other members of the Jackson family, followers of Jehovah's Witnesses, is not easy. “My family is very religious and a lot of things, like homosexuality, are very taboo, so they don't like to talk about it, it's not really accepted. But I've come to a point where I respect them and have love for them. I respect their beliefs, I respect their religion. What people think of me is none of my business, ”explained the one who is very close to model Cara Delevingne.
If her relations with her father's family are complicated, Paris Jackson admits to being much more at peace today with her mother, Debbie Rowe, whom she only met when she was 15 years old. “It's cool to get to know her, to see how alike we are. Finding out what kind of music she loves - she really loves country and folk - I send her stuff I'm working on…. We are very similar. It's just cool to have her as a friend. It's very "chill", which I love, it's the perfect word to describe it… ", she concluded.
Debbie Rowe was Michael Jackson's dermatologist assistant.
She was married to the
1996 to 1999 and they had two children together, Paris and Prince, whom she stopped seeing when she divorced the performer.
When Michael Jackson died, Debbie Rowe requested custody of her children, who were entrusted to the singer's mother, Katherine Jackson, as he had wished in her will.
