Paris Jackson has taken to social media to remember her late father, Michael Jackson, on what would have been the iconic singer’s 59th birthday.
The 19-year-old shared the sweet message with her 1.9 million followers on Instagram.
“Birthday wishes to the love of my life, the one person who showed me what passion truly was, the one that gave me solid morals to live by and how to dream,” she wrote alongside a photo of herself and her dad from her childhood.
“I will never feel love again the way I did with you. You are always with me and I am always with you. Though I am not you, and you are not me, I know with all of my being that we are one. And our souls will never change in that way.”
She concluded: “Thank you for the magic, forever and always.”
The “Billie Jean” singer died from cardiac arrest in June 2009, when Paris was just 11 years old.
In the February 2017 issue of Rolling Stone, Paris claimed her father’s death was the result of a conspiracy -- not an accident as has been reported.
Using satirical air quotes around the title “doctor”, Paris said 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.
But Paris also believes that there was a darker conspiracy at play and so, apparently, did Michael himself.
"He [Michael] would drop hints about people being out to get him,” she said. "And at some point he was like, 'They're gonna kill me one day.'"
When asked directly if she believes her father was murdered, Paris said, "Absolutely.”
"Because it's obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bull, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bull."
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.
"I am trying to play the chess game the right way,” she said. “And that's all I can say about that right now."
