Paris Reveals What Growing Up With Michael Jackson Was Like
Paris Jackson has revealed to Oprah that she found it very confusing as a child when her late father Michael Jackson would make her and her brothers wear masks in public. Michael would get Paris and her brothers Prince Michael and Prince Michael II, also known as Blanket, to wear the mask in a bid to protect their privacy. ‘I was really confused,’ the teen said when she opened up to Oprah. ‘I didn’t get why I was wearing a mask. But I understand it now – why my dad would want our faces to be covered. When we went out without him we wouldn’t be recognized.’ She says that wearing the masks have helped her and her brothers live a childhood, which she describes as ‘normal’. ‘We had a normal childhood – including trips to the children’s arcade and restaurant Chuck E. Cheese’s,’ she recalls. Explaining that her father wanted a different childhood than he had experienced she said: ‘He told us that when he was younger he didn’t really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing while the kids were out playing. He wanted us to have that.’ Talking about the death of her father Michael she said: ‘It never gets any easier.’

According to the book, Christian developed a dislike of Leonardo after he beat Christian to a number of roles including Titanic and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. ‘DiCaprio. The name burned Christian like a branding iron,’ Cheung writes. ‘Over the years, Christian had lost This Boy’s Life and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape to DiCaprio.’ Cheung also talks about the Christians infamous temper in the book something his father was known for too. ‘They both over-reacted out of proportion to any perceived offence,’ Cheung writes. ‘Christian would seethe and hiss like some surly snake.
