The first child of legendary singer Michael Jackson, Paris Jackson, has revealed that she and her family believes he was murdered.
Jackson had died of a drug overdose at the age of 50 in 2009, with his then doctor Conrad Murray convicted of involuntary manslaughter. Murray spent two years in jail.
Paris gave a full-depth interview to Rollingstone, and in the interview she revealed that she thinks it went far beyond Murray.
“He would drop hints about people being out to get him,” she says. “And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day.”
“Absolutely,” she says when asked if her dad was murdered. “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bullshit.”
Paris, who recently turned 18, revealed she also has plans to avenge her father. “Of course,” she says, eyes glowing. “I definitely do, but it’s a chess game. And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
She also spoke to the magazine about a number of other stuff, including her early suicide attempts, her dad’s court cases, and much more. You can read the full interview here.
