Why Paris Jackson Hasn't Outright Defended Michael Against 'Leaving Neverland', Addresses Her Mental State
“There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense,” says the 20-year-old daughter of the late King of Pop.
Paris Jackson is fuming over what she deems "pathetic" reports about herself and her family.
The daughter of the late Michael Jackson took to Twitter early Thursday morning to respond to several reports about her mental state, which turned into a conversation about why she hasn’t outright defended her father against the allegations made about him in HBO documentary "Leaving Neverland."
The online conversation started when the 20-year-old model explained the story behind recent photos of her and her boyfriend appearing to fight on the streets of New Orleans, tweeting, "Me and my boyfriend reenacted ‘The Californians’ from ‘SNL’ while we were in NOLA, purely for the entertainment of our friends, and paps happened to be taking pictures of it all," she wrote. "Y’all, it looks like a full-on breakup scene in a sad drama movie. Omg."
She went on to say she’s "just now catching wind" of the numerous stories claiming she’s once again in a "downward spiral."
"This is like, what, the seventh time y’all have accused me of this? The third in the past month?" she tweeted. "And yet not one OD from all the ‘drugs’ y’all accuse me of doing or any hospitalization."
"Seven," she added. "But who’s counting, right? Like, no. Please. Give it up."
Jackson continued, "There are so many more interesting things to write about. And actions speak louder than words. So if my actions prove your words wrong, why keep trying to pull this shit? It’s a little pathetic. I’ll pray for y’all."
Paris followed her rant by encouraging those who are concerned about her life to "SMOKE SOME WEED AND MELLOW OUT."
A fan then asked the starlet if she’d ever trade her wealth for "freedom from disgusting press," which she answered by bringing up the King of Pop.
"I have the same moral compass as my father, but not the level of patience," she said. "I’ll fight for love and peace in the same way, but I am more aggressively driven. I don’t sit by idly when I see injustices happening, especially when they’re directed towards me or my family. F–k that noise."
Jackson added that she’s "down for freedom of speech" and "totally game for respect of all opinions" but doesn’t tolerate "lying, especially on a mass scale."
"Where is your honor?" she asked. "Do you even know the meaning of the word?"
The topic shifted to HBO’s two-part docu-series, "Leaving Neverland" — in which MJ was accused by two different men of sexual abuse when they were children — after a fan suggested to Paris that the "tabloids are mad" she hasn’t spoken publicly about the allegations.
"There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense," she replied. "Taj is doing a perfect job on his own, and I support him, but that’s not my role. I’m just trying to get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me."
MJ’s nephew and Paris’ cousin, Taj Jackson, recently defended his late uncle against claims the singer only married Lisa Marie Presley to get his hands on the rights to Elvis Presley’s music catalog.
Paris seemingly addressed the documentary’s disturbing allegations following its debut, tweeting, "I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up, but reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage. And also, it feels better to mellow out."
When a fan alluded to the fact that MJ’s legacy had been "ruined" by the docu-series and that his name had been "smeared forever," she clapped back.
"Do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down?" she asked. "Like, do you truly believe they stand a chance?"
Michael’s family members — including Taj, Tito, Marlon and Jackie Jackson — told E! News last week that Paris, Prince and Blanket were hurt by the sexual abuse allegations made in "Leaving Neverland," particularly those made by Wade Robson, who claims Michael sexually abused him for years when he was a child.
"They can’t believe it because they know Wade," Jackie said. "They can’t believe what is going on. They are going through some troubling times. It’s painful for them."
Sources close to the situation told TMZ that Paris has yet to watch the docu-series and is "not the least bit torn or conflicted" about its content.
