Paris Jackson Strikes Back at Dad’s Siblings, Says They’re Lying
Paris Jackson, the only daughter of late King of Pop Michael Jackson, was visibly devastated in a rare public appearance after the death of her beloved father — but now the pop princess is speaking out in anger after her dad’s name popped up in the news yet again.
Paris Jackson’s dad Michael seemed unfortunately dogged by controversy and strife throughout his troubled life and again in death. “Rest in peace” is a common phrase uttered when someone (particularly someone relatively young) has passed on, but the last thing the Jackson family has seen since Michael’s death has been any sort of peaceful repose for the beleaguered pop star — perhaps beginning with his shocking death, one later ruled to be criminal in nature.
Paris Jackson and siblings Prince Michael and Blanket may have been shielded from the complications of their father’s affairs, but after his passing, the three lost their biggest advocate and protector. And Paris, who has been a bit more in the public eye in the intervening years since her father’s death, has commented on recent controversy in the Jackson family about her dad’s will.
On her Twitter page, Paris struck out at claims made by Jackson family members about her grandma, Katherine Jackson. The star’s daughter fumed:
“I am going to clarify right now that what has been said about my grandmother is a rumor and nothing has happened, she is completely fine. I will defend my beloved family member with all I have, even if it means from other family members.”
at this point i dont care what people call me or if they think i’m a bad person… if it means sticking up for my grandmother i will do it .

Paris added, cheekily, “fighting fire with fire only gets you burned… well i say maybe we need a little spark in our lives
