Paris Jackson has been known to be quite mum when it came to divulging her life as the daughter of late dad Michael Jackson, however, she recently reminisced in a video chat with one of his friends, Naomi Campbell. How can we forget that iconic clip of Naomi and Micheal dancing! Good times!
The King of Pop, who danced with the supermodel in his 1991 music video In the Closet, raised Paris and her brothers Michael Joseph “Prince” Jackson Jr. and Prince Michael “Blanket” Jackson II.
“I was conceived in Paris, from what I’ve been told, which is part of why I was named Paris,” the 22-year-old musician, model and actress said on the YouTube show No Filter with Naomi Campbell on Tuesday, March 30. “Born in L.A., California and was kind of raised everywhere but. We spent a few years up north in like, Solvang, Santa Barbara area. But I was raised kind of everywhere, like the East Coast, the South, U.K., Europe, the Middle East. Like, we grew up everywhere.”
“It was difficult, a blessing a privilege to be able to experience so much at a young age,” Paris responded. “And my dad was really good about making sure we were cultured, making sure we were educated, and not just showing us like, the glitz and glam, like hotel-hopping five-star places. But it was also like, we saw everything. We saw third-world countries and we saw like, every part of the spectrum.”
Paris was only 11 years old when her father Micheal Jackson passed away suddenly at the age of 50 in 2009.
