Paris Jackson has claimed her superstar father was murdered as she revealed she tried to commit suicide multiple times after being raped as a teenager.
The 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson opened up on her belief that his death was a ‘setup’ in a candid interview with Rolling Stone Magazine.
‘He would drop hints about people being out to get him. And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day’,’ Paris said.

Paris Jackson, the 18-year-old daughter of Michael Jackson, has claimed her superstar father was murdered in 2009 in what she describes as a ‘setup’
‘It’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bulls***, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls***.’
Paris was just 11 when Jackson died from cardiac arrest in 2009 caused by a lethal combination of prescription drugs.
The pop star’s personal physician Dr Conrad Murray was later convicted of involuntary manslaughter and sentenced to four years in prison over his death.
Paris does blame Murray for her dad’s death but believes something more sinister happened and she wants justice.
‘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 said.

Paris also revealed she was raped as a teen and opened up about her struggles with drug use and surviving ‘multiple’ suicide attempts.
She said a ‘much older complete stranger’ sexually assaulted her when she was just 14. Paris then spiraled into the depths of depression and drug addiction.
The teen tried to commit suicide several times and hid her injuries from self harm from her family.
‘It was just self-hatred… low self-esteem, thinking that I couldn’t do anything right, not thinking I was worthy of living anymore,’ she said.
She said she was prescribed the same depression medications her dad once took, but added she is no longer on any medication.
Paris said she went to a therapeutic school in Utah after her last suicide attempt, which changed her into a ‘completely different person’.
The teen, who is dating 26-year-old Michael Snoddy, says she wants to make her own money despite being an heir to her father’s fortune. She currently works as a model and has plans to get into acting.

Paris, pictured with her brother Prince Michael Jackson in 2012, said growing up on Neverland Ranch was a ‘pretty normal life’
The middle child of The King Of Pop also told of her surprisingly ‘pretty normal life’ growing up on Neverland Ranch and how she does not question that the late star is her biological father.
She did not hold back as she sat down with the iconic music magazine that her father had so often graced the pages of.
With a fingerless glove on one hand as a tribute to him, Paris also stars on the cover that has once bared her father’s image.
While Micheal has three children, Paris is every inch his daughter – even Michael’s oldest son, Prince Michael Jackson, says so.
He told the magazine: ‘Basically, as a person, she is who my dad is,’ says her older brother, Prince Michael Jackson. ‘The only thing that’s different would be her age and her gender.’ Paris is similar to Michael, he adds, ‘in all of her strengths, and almost all of her weaknesses as well. She’s very passionate.
‘She is very emotional to the point where she can let emotion cloud her judgment.’
