Paris Jackson covers the newest issue of ‘Rolling Stone’, and the teenager doesn’t shy away from discussing anything.
The 18-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson opens up about her father's tragic death, past struggles with depression and drug abuse and attempting suicide.
According to Paris, her dad was “absolutely” murdered. “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.” She also believes AEG Live, who promoted MJ’s This Is It tour — the tour he was rehearsing for before his death — had a part in her father’s death. “AEG Live does not treat their performers right,” she tells ‘Rolling Stone’. “They drain them dry and work them to death.”
Paris also issues a warning for Justin Bieber, whose massive tours are put on by AEG. Referring to a recent Bieber show she attended, Paris says “He was tired, going through the motions. I looked at my ticket, saw AEG Live, and I thought back to how my dad was exhausted all the time but couldn’t sleep.”
She also told the magazine she'd tried to take her own life "multiple times" — possibly as many as three.
"It was just once that it became public," she said. Because of the hospital's "three-strike rule," she was directed to an in-patient program following the last incident. She attended a therapeutic school for her sophomore year and part of her junior year of high school.
"It was just self-hatred," she said, "low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore."
