6 things Paris Jackson revealed in her Rolling Stones interview

2017-01-25 12:54

Cape Town – Paris Jackson landed her very first magazine cover for Rolling Stone magazine and along with it came a very revealing interview.

The 18-year-old looks stunning on the cover and sat down with Rolling Stone’s Brian Hiatt in her first-ever in-depth interview to discuss everything from personal endeavours (including multiple suicide attempts) to growing up with her famous father and building a life for herself after his death.

Here are 6 major details Paris revealed:

1. She has 50 tattoos.

Paris has inked her body more than 50 times, even getting a couple while underage. Nine of her permanent markings are an ode to her father, Michael Jackson.

Of her tribute tattoos Paris told Brian, “He's brought me nothing but joy, so why not have constant reminders of joy?”

2. She has tried to kill herself multiple times.

In June 2013 at age 15 Paris made headlines after trying to kill herself by slashing her wrists and downing 20 Motrin pills. But this was not the first time the young model had tried to take her life.

She explains, “It was just once that it became public.” And adds that the hospital she was repeatedly admitted to had a 3-strike rule and after her 3rd attempt urged her to go to rehab. 

3. She was sexually assaulted when she was 14.

Paris revealed another traumatic occurrence she has never publicly dealt with. When she was 14 years old, a man who she describes as “a much older complete stranger” sexually assaulted her. 

She added that it was a horrible experience and that she stayed silent about it at the time.

4. She grew up in Neverland, but there were rules.

Paris and her brothers, Prince, 19, and Blanket, 14 grew up in their father’s fantasy land. It had its own amusement park, zoo and movie theatre, but that didn't mean they could do whatever they wanted.

Paris recalls, “We couldn't just go on the rides whenever we wanted to.”

As hard as it is to believe the three siblings had a fairly normal upbringing, they went to school and had to follow certain rules and be well behaved to get a reward. 

“We could choose whether we were gonna go to the movie theatre or see the animals or whatever. But if you were on bad behavior, then you wouldn't get to go do all those things.”

5. She felt like she had to stand up for Michael at his funeral.

The first time Paris stood up for her dad was when she took to the stage at his televised memorial. Paris explains she knew she had to make sure everyone knew how she felt, “That was the first time I ever publicly defended him, and it definitely won't be the last.”

6. She strongly believes her father was murdered.

Paris touched on her father's 2009 death, saying she blames Dr. Conrad Murray, who was convicted of involuntary manslaughter, for getting her father hooked on the anaesthetic.

She also says "all arrows point" to her father having been murdered somehow.
