Speaking with Rolling Stone magazine, Paris Jackson has claimed that her father’s death was not an accident as has been reported, but rather the result of a conspiracy.
Using satirical air quotes around the title “doctor”, Pairs revealed that she blames Dr Conrad Murray, the King of Pop’s personal physician, for his dependency on the anesthetic drug propofol that led to his death.
Dr Conrad Murray has been convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison over the iconic pop star’s death.
But Pairs also believes that there was a darker conspiracy at play and so, apparently, did Michael himself.
While Paris was unwilling, or perhaps unable to name names, the candid interview went on to reveal that Paris will eventually seek justice from the parties that wronged her family.
She said, "I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that's all I can say about that right now."
During the candid interview, Paris also touched on her high-publicised suicide attempt.
At just 15-years-old, Paris was reportedly drowning in depression and battling a very serious drug addiction when she decided to slash her wrists and down 20 Motrin pills.
"It was just self-hatred," she said, "low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn't do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore."
She added that there have been “multiple” attempts to take her own life, explaining that "It was just once that it became public."
Another possible factor that may have led to her dangerously depressed state of mind is the revelation that she was sexually assaulted at 14.
Paris said that the offender was a significantly older “complete stranger.”
She added: “I don’t wanna give too many details. But it was not a good experience at all, and it was really hard for me, and, at the time, I didn’t tell anybody.”
In the honest interview, Paris also chose to dispel any lingering rumours that lay around her true parentage. On account of her very fair skin and generally distant relationship with mother Debbie Rowe many have speculated that Paris isn’t actually the late Thriller hitmaker child.
Addressing the rumours she said, "I consider myself black.”
She added that her dad would look her in the eyes and point his finger at her and say, “'You're black. Be proud of your roots.'”
Although, Paris does conceded that most people identify her as being “white.”
She said, "I've got light skin and, especially since I've had my hair blond, I look like I was born in Finland or something."
Leaving nothing to conjecture, Paris concluded the topic by forcefully stating, “He is my father. He will always be my father. He never wasn’t, and he never will not be. People that knew him really well say they see him in me, that it’s almost scary.”
