"Chill out." Paris Jackson has responded to the child sex abuse allegations against her father.

Paris Jackson – the daughter of the late singer, Michael Jackson – has responded to the claims of child sexual abuse and psychological grooming alleged at her father, in the HBO documentary, Leaving Neverland.

In the two-part film, Wade Robson and James Safechuck detail how the former ‘King of Pop’ befriended their families while he sexually assaulted them both on tour and at his Neverland Ranch in California.

Despite this, Paris Jackson has largely denied these allegations and continued to defend her father in a thread of recent tweets.

Responding to a fan who said tabloid media was ‘provoking her’ for a response, the 20-year-old shared her thoughts on the controversy.

“There’s nothing I can say that hasn’t already been said in regards to defence. Taj (Michael Jackson’s nephew) is doing a perfect job on his own and I support him but that’s not my role,” she wrote.

“I’m just tryna get everyone to chill out and go with the flow, be mellow and think about the bigger picture. That’s me.”

Paris also said she had the “same moral compass as [her] father,” when responding to another tweet from a supporter who asked if she would trade her wealth for “freedom from disgusting press”.

Although she didn’t directly address the media speculation surrounding her late father, she did vaguely speak about the topic.

“I don’t sit by idly when i see injustices happen, especially when they’re directed towards me or my family,” she posted.

“F**k that noise.”

In her previous tweets which she shared earlier in the month, the aspiring model and actress urged her followers to react to Leaving Neverland with a calm and logical mind, while she defended her father’s legacy.

“I know injustices are frustrating and it’s easy to get worked up,” she wrote.

“But reacting with a calm mind usually is more logical than acting out of rage and also… It feels better to mellow out.”

“Do you really think that it’s possible to tear his name down? Like do you truly believe they stand a chance? Relax and have peace,” she shared in another tweet.

While Paris has chosen to confront the allegations against her father straight on, she’s also been the most public among her two siblings.

According to reports from their cousin Taj, her younger brother, Blanket ‘Biji’ Jackson’s reaction to the documentary has caused concern.

“Biji is the most talkative kid at school and he isn’t talking anymore. We’re all worried about him,” he said in an interview on the Victoria Derbyshire talk show.

Meanwhile 22-year-old Prince Michael Jackson has not publicly spoken about his father’s alleged crimes, both to media or on his social profiles. His most recent post was from earlier today, in which he shared two videos of jellyfish, accompanied by a caption with three fish emojis.
