Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter, Paris, has revealed she was bullied when she started school but says she refused to let them get to her.

Paris Jackson, the only daughter of the late ‘Thriller’ singer used to be educated at home alongside her brothers, Prince Michael, 15, and 10 year old Prince Michael ll, who is known as Blanket, but following their father’s death 2009 it was decided they would attend school. However, Paris, who is trying to carve out a career as an actress, admits that enrolment didn’t go down too well with the other students and says she was picked on, but refused to let them upset her.

She said, “People try, but it doesn’t always work. At school, and some people try to cyber bully me. They try to get to me with words, but that doesn’t really work.” Paris also revealed she is wary of making new friends as she’s not sure if they like her for her or because she’s famous. She told talk show host Oprah Winfrey; “If I feel someone is being fake to me I will just push away.”
Paris also spoke about her childhood and said her father, who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009, wanted her and her brothers to have as much fun as possible because he felt he had missed out, having become a singer at a very young age. “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.”

Paris and her two brothers are now in the care of Michael Jackson’s mother, Katherine Jackson.

Bullying has become an epidemic amongst young adults, and with the use of social media, there is no relief from the abuse. With a famous star’s daughter coming forward it shows that no one is exempt from this serious issue.
