It’s Not My Role To Defend My Father, Says Paris Jackson


Paris Jackson has given reasons why decided not to speak out about the new allegations of sexual, emotional and mental abuse being made against her father in the documentary Leaving Neverland. 

In a series of Twitter posts on Thursday the sometimes model and heiress responded to an individual who wrote that she believed recent unfavorable press coverage was all a ploy to get Jackson to comment on these latest allegations. 

‘[T]here’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense. Michael Jackson’s [nephew] Taj is doing a perfect job on his own. And I support him,’ said Jackson.

‘[B]ut that’s not my role. I’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me.’

Jackson has the most to lose in the wake of the documentary as she and her two brothers Prince and Blanket inherited half of Jackson’s $1.5 billion estate upon his death.

The other half went to his mother Katherine Jackson, who was also named the guardian for the children despite the fact that Paris’ mother Debbie Rowe is still alive.

In the event that Katherine could not fulfill that role as guardian, Michael said in his will that Diana Ross would care of his children.

In addition to the money Michael left behind upon his death, the King of Pop is also supplying the family with posthumous paychecks. 

In 2018, the estate made an astonishing $400 million, with a large portion of that coming from his estate selling its stake in EMI Music Publishing to Sony.
