After the release of Leaving Neverland, which highlighted the alleged inappropriate relationships that Michael Jackson had with young kids during the height of his fame, many people wondered how exactly this would affect his legacy. Of course, many people already believed the rumors about his abuse, but there was never enough evidence to have solid stories.
This documentary, which featured two men, James Safechuck and Wade Robson, describing their experiences with Jackson has been deemed reputable, and a lot of fans are starting to see exactly what kind of man Michael Jackson was.
Unfortunately, these allegations are having a negative effect on Michael Jackson’s kids, particularly his daughter Paris, who was allegedly admitted to the hospital after trying to end her life. Police were called to Paris’ home at 7:30am on March 15th, where they discovered she had slit her wrists.
Paris was released the next day, so thankfully it doesn’t seem as though her injuries were too severe. The only Jackson daughter has been trying to navigate these new documentary allegations on Twitter, as people have been asking why she isn’t being more vocal.
“There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defense […]” she said about the documentary. “That’s not my role.”
“I am defending him, in my own way,” she said in response to Perez Hilton, who claimed the young model wasn’t defending her father at all.
“My father handled his trials and tribulations with grace, peace, and love,” she replied to another commenter. “It’s a more effective way of life. I suggest we all take that as an example.”
Someone who has been notably silent through all this is Macaulay Culkin, who has often been the center of rumors when it comes to Michael Jackson molesting children. Culkin, who is Paris Jackson’s godfather, opened up in 2005 about how MJ had an alarm system leading up to his bedroom.
“There was like a walkway kind of thing, where if somebody was approaching the door, it would kind of like ‘ding-dong, ding-dong,'” he recalled. “When anyone would approach the room, yeah, you’d hear this kind of—soft kind of alarm, like ‘ding-dong’ kind of thing.”
Despite his alleged inappropriate relationship with the famous singer, Culkin says he has nothing but love for Paris, and she’s off limits when it comes to interview topics.
“I’m going to warn you now, I am very protective of her so just look out,” he said in an interview. “I am a very open book when it comes to things but like with her, she is beloved by me. I’m just letting you know if we want to start going down that road it’s going to be a dead-end, you know, but I mean that in the fact that I love her so much.”
Paris has since been on Twitter, saying the reports of her attempted suicide are false, replying to TMZ’s tweet saying “f*** you you f*****g liars.” That being said, TMZ has rarely posted a story without validating their information, and with Paris’ history of mental illness (including a past suicide attempt,) there’s no reason to believe TMZ fabricated this story.
