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.
Watch the trailer for Leaving Neverland:
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.
