Paris Jackson: I was bullied at school

Los Angeles - Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter was bullied when she started school.

Paris Jackson - the only daughter of the lateThriller singer - used to be educated at home alongside her brothers, Prince Michael, 15, and 10-year-old Prince Michael II, who is known as Blanket, but following their father's death in 2009 it was decided they would attend school.

However, Paris - who is trying to carve out a career as an actress - admits their enrollment didn't go down too well with the other students and says she was picked on, but refused to let them upset her.

She said: "People try, but it doesn't always work. At school, and some people try to cyber bully me. They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work."

Paris also revealed she is wary of making new friends as she's not sure if they like her for her or because she's famous.

'I will push away'

She told talk show host Oprah Winfrey: "If I feel someone is being fake to me, I will just push away."

Paris also spoke about her childhood and said her father - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - wanted her and her brothers to have as much fun as possible because he felt he had missed out having become a singer at a very young age.

She said: "He told us that when he was younger he didn't really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing while the kids were out playing. He wanted us to have that."

Paris and her brothers are now in the care of Michael's mother Katherine Jackson.
