It’s been eight years since we said goodbye to the favorite and only King of Pop, the unbelievable Michael Jackson, who died on June 25, 2009. His tragic death, who was eventually ruled as a homicide after his personal physician put too much propofol and benzodiazepine in his body, was a reason for worldly grief. Luckily, his legacy lives on in both his music and three children, Paris, Prince, and Blanket. But Paris was indeed the most special one, even to him. She has most recently shared heart-melting pictures of the King of Pop and the world got emotional once again.
Paris Jackson is now a 19-years-old actress and the second child of Michael Jackson and Debbie Rowe. She’s also very active on social media and uses her online presence to promote mental health awareness and political activism. Paris is certainly following her father’s footsteps in a way he would be proud of.
As such, she often travels to countries in need of aid, bringing love and care to those who need it most. Most importantly, she understands that she has a lot of good fortune in her life and wants to use some of that to help others. Here’s Paris in Malawi, doing work with the Elizabeth Taylor Aids Foundation.
She’s also used a recent appearance at the VMA’s to speak out against the violent acts of racism in Charlottesville. She used her time as a presenter to make a motivational speech about tolerance, and got a massive applause from the attending audience.
Paris took to her Instagram account on what would have been her father’s 59th birthday to share a previously unseen photograph. It’s a tender moment between her and her dad. The sweet picture shows Paris giving her father a kiss and shows the close bond the two of them shared.
Paris captioned her photograph with the words, “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.” Are you in need of tissues, too?
This isn’t the first time that Paris has shared pictures of herself with her father. Also, she has used photo editing software to create pictures of quality time she could have had with her dad.
It’s lovely to see that Paris still feels so close to her father after all these years. Obviously, she still views him as an inspiration and a positive influence in her life.
