Why Paris Jackson did not celebrate Michael Jackson’s birthday?
Paris Jackson took to her Instagram stories and shared her video slamming the trolls and revealing the reason why she did not celebrate her later father's birthday. Addressing the social media trolls, Paris Jackson said, “So today’s my dad’s birthday, and back when he was alive, he used to hate anybody acknowledging his birthday, wishing him a happy birthday, celebrating it, nothing like that...He actually didn’t want us to even know when his birthday was because he didn’t want us to throw a party...If you don’t wish someone a happy birthday via social media, it apparently means that you don’t love them, you don’t care about them...There have been times where I don’t post anything for my dad’s birthday, and people lose their f****** minds. They tell me to kill myself...And they’re basically measuring my love for my own father based off of what I post on Instagram.”
For those who are unaware about the King of Pop's family tree, Michael Jackson had Prince and Paris Jackson with ex-wife Debbie Rowe, to whom he was married from November 1996 to April 2000. The singer said in the 2003 documentary ‘Living with Michael Jackson’ that Blanket was conceived via surrogate, though the woman’s identity was never revealed. Notably, Michael Jackson whose legacy has been an epicenter of a series of child abuse allegations – was also married to Lisa Marie Presley from May 1994 to August 1996 but the pair never had kids. After Michael divorced his first wife, Lisa Marie Presley, in 1996, he and Rowe went on to marry and have their first child together, Prince, the following year.
