Life and career

1998–2009: Early life

Jackson was born on April 3, 1998, at Spaulding Pain Medical Clinic in Beverly Hills, California,[12][13] and was named after the French capital city in which she was conceived. Her name was also from a promise that her father, aunt La Toya, and Kathy Hilton made when they were younger that if they were to have a daughter, they would name her Paris.[14] She is the middle child and only daughter of singer Michael Jackson and younger child of Debbie Rowe. She has one older brother, Michael Joseph Jackson, Jr. (“Prince”) and one younger half-brother, Prince Michael Jackson II (“Bigi”). Jackson was raised solely by her father, who received full custody rights following his divorce in 1999; Rowe had stated it was her intention and agreed upon with Michael that he would raise and have custody of the children.[15] Reports alleged that the relationship was an “economic” transaction for Rowe while Jackson wanted a baby.[16] She grew up at Neverland Ranch with her siblings. Her father made Elizabeth Taylor[17] and Macaulay Culkin[18] the godparents of her and her brother Prince. During her childhood, she and her siblings often wore masks during public outings with their father to hide their faces from the public.[19] Jackson’s father unexpectedly died on June 25, 2009, leaving her and her siblings in the custody of their grandmother.

2010–2018: Career beginnings

In 2010, Jackson and her brothers gave an interview for Oprah Winfrey alongside their grandmother Katherine and their cousins about life after her father’s death. She and her brother Prince also accepted the Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2010 Grammy Awards on their father’s behalf.[20] Jackson enrolled at the Buckley School, an exclusive private school in Sherman Oaks, California, along with her brother Prince.[21] There, she participated in flag football,[22] softball,[23] and cheerleading.[24]

In 2011, Jackson signed on to star in the children’s fantasy film, Lundon’s Bridge and the Three Keys, a story adapted from a book written by Dennis Christen. Ultimately, the film was not produced.[25]

Jackson, her two siblings Prince and Blanket and her grandmother Katherine made plans to put together a documentary film entitled Remembering Michael in remembrance of her deceased father. It had been hoped that costs associated with the making of the project were to be funded via contributing fans through the crowdfunding site FundAnything. However, due to the uproar from the fans and media sparked by this method, Katherine decided to shut down the campaign. In a sneak peek of the documentary, Paris remarked that her father had promised to teach her his famous dance move, the Moonwalk, but never had the chance.[26] Since the shut down of the online campaign, no further updates have been reported concerning this project.

In January 2017, Jackson appeared on the cover of Rolling Stone.[27]

In March 2017, Jackson signed a modeling contract with IMG Models.[28] Also in March, Jackson made her acting debut with a guest starring role on FOX’s Star.

Jackson made her feature film debut in Gringo in 2018.[29]

She and musician/singer Gabriel Glenn formed a musical duo called The Soundflowers and performed their first gig at Canyon Sessions on June 23, 2018, with original songs “Daisy” and “In the Blue”. Jackson sings and plays the ukulele while Glenn also sings and plays acoustic guitar.[30] The Soundflowers released their first self-titled EP on 24 June 2020.


On June 24, 2019, the eve of the 10th anniversary of her father’s death, it was confirmed that Jackson would make an appearance in the third season of the VH1 slasher television series Scream.[31][32]

Jackson then appeared in Habit, portraying the role of Jesus.[33] Jackson also signed a deal with Republic Records.[34] Her first single, “Let Down,” was released on October 29, 2020, as well as the music video for the song.[35] Her debut album, Wilted, was released on November 18, 2020.[36]

On April 22, 2021, it was reported that Jackson joined the cast of the tenth season of the FX anthology horror series, American Horror Story in an undisclosed role.[37] She starred as Maya in the first story of the American Horror Story spinoff series, American Horror Stories, which premiered July 15, 2021.[38]

Personal life

Jackson has said that she considers herself black and that she was immersed in African-American culture by her father.[39]

By the age of 15, she had been an intravenous drug addict and had attempted suicide several times.[14] She was then sent to a therapeutic school in Utah, where she spent her sophomore and junior years of high school, and which she originally credited with helping her overcome depression.[40] However, in October 2020, Jackson revealed the school had actually subjected her and the other students to extensive abuse. The revelation came in response to Paris Hilton’s documentary This Is Paris, in which Hilton describes being verbally, physically, and sexually abused at Provo Canyon School, a therapeutic school in Provo, Utah. Jackson posted to her Instagram account, “I stand with @ParisHilton & all the survivors. … As a girl who also went to a behavior modification ‘boarding school’ for almost two years as a teenager, and has since been diagnosed with PTSD because of it, and continue to have nightmares and trust issues, I stand with @ParisHilton and the other survivors. The other girls I’m still friends with to this day that went to the boarding school with me all have the same symptoms of PTSD and nightmares and trust issues. This is child abuse. … Let’s start with Provo and keep going from there.”

On July 13, 2018, in response to a question on her Instagram profile about whether she is bisexual, she wrote: “That’s what you guys call it so I (sic) guess but who needs labels.” She later added to Twitter: “Everyone has known for years I came out when I was 14, WTF.” and “How many times have I publicly referred to the community as ‘my fellow LGBTQ+’? Like, even on stage. I’ve been a part of the community for years. I even mentioned having crushes on girls when I was eight in a magazine before. I’ve been caught kissing girls in public.” Again, she added to her Instagram page: “And I’m not bisexual, I just love people for people.”[44][45]

In March 2019, TMZ posted an article stating Jackson had attempted suicide by cutting her wrists earlier in the month and was placed on a psychiatric hold. The story was picked up by a number of other media outlets.[46] Jackson denied the suicide attempt, writing to TMZ on Twitter “fuck you you fucking liars” and “lies lies lies omg and more lies.”[47]

In July 2020, Jackson discussed her sexuality in her docuseries, Unfiltered: Paris Jackson & Gabriel Glenn, in which Jackson stated “Never thought I’d end up with a dude; thought I’d end up marrying a chick or…” She also stated that she has “dated more women than men” but that she “wouldn’t consider myself bisexual because I’ve dated more than just men and women; I’ve dated a man that had a vagina.”[48]
