Happy Birthday, Paris Jackson

Happy Birthday, Paris Jackson

Michael Jackson helps his daughter Paris Jackson celebrate her 9th birthday in Las Vegas on Tuesday.

Michael, Paris, sons Prince and Michael II, and a slew of bodyguards started the day at FAO Schwarz Toy Store at the Forum Shops in Caesars Palace. The store closed for over an hour so the family could go on a shopping spree. Check out that mob scene!

Afterwards they headed to the Wynn Hotel for lunch at “Wing Lei” Chinese Restaurant followed by a walk through the Wynn Shops where Michael, 48, stopped by the Rolex store to look at watches.

After their busy day shopping, the Jackson family returned home, where a party was thrown for the birthday girl, including a visit from Charlie the Clown.

It was rumored last week that Michael is looking to perform at an extended run show like Celine Dion‘s in Las Vegas. He supposedly wants to build a 50-foot robot version of himself that will walk around the desert outside of the city and emit laser beams from its head. Zap, zap!

Inside are 25+ pictures of Paris‘ birthday celebration including Michael, Paris, Prince, and Michael II

    i don’t undertsand, can sumone please explain y does he cover his kids faces???

  • Christy

    Isn’t this some sort of child abuse? She’s 9 years old and he makes her wear a hood in public…doesn’t go to school…is only allowed to play with kids that he invites to their house…can you even imagine how messed up and out of touch with reality these kids are? On my god…the books they will write someday!!!!!!!!!! That is…if he’s actually allowing them to be taught to read and write.

  • langtry

    I think Paris chooses to wear the viel as a way to conceal his identity. Why?

    If your father made you wear girls’ shoes, wouldn’t you?

  • Pandora

    I agree — surely this is tantamount to child abuse. I wasn’t aware he was affiliated w/ a culture/religious grp. that requires the covering of children’s faces. His (face) is shocking, yet exposed, so why not theirs? Beyond ridiculous and very sad for the kids.

  • Paul Harvey

    how in the world did his kids turn out white?.he is a FREAK

    And those kids aren’t his. He is parading around two White children as physically his own and no one calls him on this BS.

    I just pisses me off how he get away with being completely insane because he’s rich and famous.

    Those poor children. Anyone else would have had DFACS called on their crazy ass.

  • Lawrence

    2 things: Their mother wants them to cover their faces. THEY want to cover their faces.

    Secondly, they are his kids. Their mother is white.

    Stranger things have happened -_-

  • sue

    Bullsh*t, he didn’t father these children. The American legal system is so effed up!

  • michaelmaximus

    Happy birthday Paris!! I hope you had a great day and you got what you wanted on your birthday.

  • louise

    Awwww so cute!! And stop calling MJ a freak people, you don’t even know him. To the person who said they don’t go to school-Yes they do, MJ has said that. And the mother wants them to wear things to cover their faces too, she was the one who gave the idea to MJ.

  • aveeno

    They grow so fast! its been 9 yrs already! Paris is such a daddy’s girl.
    Its Debbie’s choice to have the kids covered.
    That choice affords the kids privacy to go out without their dad and not be noticed.
    If you don’t like it… shoot yourself. :) your opinion certainly doesn’t count they do what they need to do…… it is the way it is. The moment those kids are uncovered they’ll be followed around like Nicole Richie, Britney, Linsay Lohan, Brangelina kids are followed around… every single moment….

  • http://- BC

    Hey please, why do have to be so rude?
    Why is so important to YOU where his children come from? He is happy with his children and he loves them.
    And damn he’s not a freak, you still think that he bleched his skin, that’s why you always say that’s he’s a freak. But he has VITILIGO (, it’s a skin disease.

  • Christy


    Their mother wants them to cover their faces???? Last I read…she’s not even allowed to see them! She was going to court to get visitation…ANY kind of vistiation…cause she wasn’t allowed to see them. Had supposedly taken some money to stay away from them at some point…so the FREAK could raise them to be the craziest, most messes up Hollyweird kids ever…without her interference. Or has this changed? And if the average parents had their kids walking around in malls with hoods (that were not relgious in affliation)…you’d better believe somebody would be investigating it. ESPECIALLY if the parent in question had been tried on sexual abuse charges.

  • J.H.

    My nine year old son would never agree to wearing this outfit! Boys don’t like attention drawn to them generally. This is outragous!

  • michaelmaximus

    Those that complain about the kids wearing veils do so because you want to be able to comment every little thing about those kids.You would like nothing more but to be able to disect every little detail of their face….Michael won`t give you the satisfaction so learn to deal with it.And for those who say that Michael should be investigated let me tell you that he was….they found NO REASON to take his kids away from him so you can cry all you want.

  • becs

    Some people here seem to assume they know exactly how those kids live and feel.

    They only wear those veils when they’re with their father. Because they do that, the public are not really familiar with their faces. So they can go about freely when they’re not with him. It’s a very clever plan……this way, they get a CHOICE.

    When they grow up, they don’t have to be called “freaks” or made fun of. They can go out and do normal things now without him.

    If you just engage a few brain cells and put some thought into it (instead of the knee jerk reaction to bash everything he does), then you will see that it’s the best thing he could do in his situation.
    And you people think travelling around is bad for the kids?? What about Angelina & Brad’s kids??

    Well people ignorance is showing!


    1. Michael’s children nanny tutors them- so they are getting an education! Michael helps as well!

    2. He covers their faces for their safety – the media would print their faces all over the world if he didn’t. There are some freaks out there who would do anything for money and use his children in an evil way!

    3. Whether those kids are his biologically doesn’t matter – he is still the father to them and they love him dearly. I’m sure Michael is a wonderful father!

    Now stop JUDGING someone until you know them!

    “Ignorance makes you dull!”

  • Truth

    I know you want the faces uncovered so you can then ABUSE the children yourself. Those kids are very happy and very loved.Paris is out with her daddy enjoying her birthday. I’m sure she got whatever she wanted.And I know you are your kids can’t say the same.Don’t be envious of kids!

  • Truth

    PARIS IS A GIRL YOU IGNORANT FOOLS!!! And some of you are worried about the kids educations? Maybe your parents should have cared enough about you to make sure you had common sense!

  • Anne

    That doesn’t cut it. Nobody knows anything about the kid’s education – neither fans or non-fans. Nobody knows what Michael Jackson is like as a disciplinarian, father or teacher. The Jackson camp has got a strategy to give nothing whatsoever information about that to the public in order to insist that this is nobodys business. BTW, Jackson hasn’t said a word about the kid’s education in years by now, so nobody can claim they know something about it. It goes both ways.

    Actually, photos that were taken in January 2007 do prove that Jackson’s kids look nothing like him, so it doesn’t play a role any longer whether they are covered or not. The only reasons why they are is that nobody can make some money with photos without Jackson’s approval. Furthermore, Jackson’s kids only attract public interest if Jackson is with them – small wonder.

  • Jason

    Dumb A$$eS!

    Michael covers their face so they won’t end up like Britney Spears…. Lindsay Lohan…

    He is protecting them…. keeping people like you out of their lives… keeping the media from knowing how they look…

    ANd thats another reason why they won’t leave him alone. He doesn’t do what they want him to.

    It sucks they have so many people brainwashed. If only yall could take the time and look up some stuff on MJ, like REALLY research, you’d feel like jacka$$e$ afterwards. Stop being so evil and negative. Its not nice to do that to any human.

  • mmyers

    I think they’re followed because they wear the veils. It’s like wearing a Krusty the Clown mask when it’s not Haloween, I think it’s sick and these kids should be taken away from him even if the parents do think it’s a good idea for them to cover their faces. Clearly, it’s child abuse! He probably sleeps with them too, and God only knows what else he does to these kids!

  • Jessica

    Happy Birthday Paris…hope you had a wonderful birthday!!!

    Fuck off you haters….

    this kids have sure a better future than a lot of other children out their. I have met them, they are normal well educated children. The are very smart and have a private teacher.

    I live on this earth to live my life like I want to, and not like you want me too.

    fuzz brain Beat it!!!

  • aristea

    many of you here don;t even know who MJ is so stop complaining,if you don’t like him,then why you take the time to critisize him?just because you think he’s a freak doesn’t mean that it’s the truth….you don’t freakin know what his contributions to charity are!and for christ’s sake let the man alone,he just went for shopping with his daughter!he cannot even do that now??and if the kids want to pull off the veils,i’m sure he’ll listen to them….to say that wearing veils is a child abuse really it’s crazy!!!you are the sickos for thinking that way not michael!!!MJ tries to protect his children by sick minds like you!!

  • brooklyn

    LOL! Look at all of the people waiting for Michael to come out of FAO Schwartz Toy Store. It continues to amaze me how folks react to him, whenever he is out and about. I also noticed the older couples waving and looking all happy to see Michael. That was really cute!

    The media can say whatever they want to say, it’s apparent that folks STILL have love for Michael Jackson. It’s confirmed everytime he is out in public, any where in the WORLD!

    Living in Las Vegas must really agree with him, he looks so happy. It’s very nice to see him and his children enjoying themselves.

    I look forward to his new projects.

  • mickey

    The veil is a nice touch. It will definitely help obscure the fact that the child is completely Caucasian and thus obviously not your biological child as you desperately want the world to believe. Mike you were Black once–you may be ashamed of that–but many people certainly haven’t forgotten it.

  • sue

    MJ is probably one of the greatest entertainers of our century. To bad he had to turn out so crazy! MichealM., any legal system that would allow a murderer (O.J.) and a pedophile(M.J.) free is effed up! The difference between these two and the average Joe is MONEY and FAME! It’s absolutely discusting.

  • Victor

    RE: Anne

    Most of the women you see around Michael’s children are all nannies and private tutors as well. Sure, they don’t go to regular elementary school but they are educated.

    You have to remember that Michael was investigated by the child services department back in 2002 and 2003 and they concluded that his children were well taken care of. If they weren’t educated and weren’t getting an education they wouldn’t have approved of it. That aside, Michael has been said to be a good parent by everyone and anyone that has ever been around him and his children.

    Secondly, you are right. They only attract attention when he’s around and that is the only time you’ll see them with scarfs covering their faces. The photos that surfaced in January are not the only photos of them unmasked. There are plenty of them. I don’t know why people have such a hard time understanding that they don’t wear them on a regular basis.

    The major downside that they will probably come to terms with when they are older is not having a lot of friends their age. They travel so much that they couldn’t possibley have time to make any lasting ones. Their friends probably only consist of each other and other family and that’s just not good.

    Michael Jackson seems to be over protective of them. I understand concealing their identities, but they should have more contact with other kids. Michael himself didn’t have that, so he should know what that is like.

  • mmyers

    It’s like the bearded lady in the circus, no one’s actually in love with but boy do we like to look at her! It’s a phenom. Same concept.

  • Maz

    Some people’s comments here are soooooo stupid! Unless your father is as famous as Michael Jackson…don’t judge him! Look at all these famous people now in rehub and drugs, crashing their cars and been arrested almost daily! Please!! Like that’s normal! So what if the kids cover their faces? What is it to you? If you don’t like it…you don’t have to look at them!LOL! Abuse! many ‘normal’ people everyday beat, rape and kill their kids and others?! Its always easier to judge others than to look at your own life first! P.S. Happy birthday Paris! Michael looks great! Can not wait for your album dude!!!XXXX

  • Anne

    Actually, at this point, with so little or no info, I would not trust anything what the Jackson camp or Jackson himself have said in the few, edited interviews that exist. As far as I know Child Services in California are underpaid and overworked and have little or no means and no judicial base to perform a thorough investigation. Perfect for camp Jackson to present to the public what they want to. About some fans meeting the children in controlled situations, well, it is plain ridiculuos to think that they could even tell how the kids’ real personalities are. About the kids not meeting friends their own age – small wonder. Until today it is not even known whether their father is able to have a steady, trusted friendship to anyone, be it man or woman. Showbiz friendships just for the image don’t count as such.

  • Bear

    It’s clear, Michael makes his children hide their faces because the children look NOTHING like him whatsoever and the media will pounce on that fact! And his children’s faces will be plastered on every tabloid in the world, debating whether their his biologicial children or not!

  • Lindsey

    Looks like the family had a great time, i like Michael’s watch. Glad to see a set of photos where they don’t look angered by the press maybe it’s because these people are respecting them and staying further away so that they can still enjoy themselves.

    By the way the kids have a choice as to whether they want to wear any masks, when they feel safe enough not to wear them they will not wear them.

  • justme

    Great pics! Looks like Paris is having fun on her birthday with her daddy! I hope it was a special day for her.

  • Michaels#1Fan!

    Michael is looking so good! He’s such a good father! The reason he covers their faces is to protect them and because Debbie asked him to! He wants his children to be able to go out in public without everyone knowing who they are! All you haters….why do you even take the time to look at photos of MJ and post comments about someone you supposedly don’t like, you are all morons!! Just look at all the people who flock around him wherever he goes, and if any of you haters were there you would do the same thing!!

    Happy Birthday Paris!

    We Love You Michael!!!!

  • Bone-crusha

    Its funny how you SAME haters continue to jump from website to website, looking foir news on Jackson, then doing the same bullshit the media pigs do, bash and ridicule. Tell me all you nonthinkers, how many celebrities try to PROTECT their kids from the glaring eyes of the media? How many have gotten PHYSICAL with the paparrazzi bitches to help them understand? Your rude comments show that you lack self esteem and are nothing more than a bandwagon follower. Jump on the boat with the folks you perceive to be “cool” and do what they do. Jackson will always have support regardless of you punk ass bitch marks and your snide potshots. Its nothing new. Played out and old as acid washed jeans. If you met him personally your shit talking would bite the dust and your true feelings would break the surface. Those kids will be outstanding human beings, that just might have to help you one day. You never know.

  • justme

    Michael is SMART to cover his kids faces. Hundreds of THOUSANDS of images of michael from babyhood to adulthood exists. He doesnt want the same for his children. He doesnt want the public scrutinizing their looks, and watching their emotions for their amusement. Yet, he does want them to go out with them, and this is how it’s done. His children can go alone to a park with a nanny and not be stalked or bothered, if he isnt there. He’s concealing their identities.

  • Lindsey

    he’s not making them wear masks, its the kids choice.

  • brooklyn

    LOL! Look at picture #6. Look at all of those people following Michael. Now that’s down right priceless! It’s not enough that they got a glimpse of him, they are actually following him. It looks like that Verizon commerical. Michael got them folks in a trance.


  • allthatmatters

    Hundreds of THOUSANDS of pictures of Michael Jackson exists. Many fans, have photos of him in their homes and on their walls. Michael Doesnt want the same thing to happen to his children, and is clearly trying to protect their identities as best as he can. He doesnt want their looks and their every emotion scrutinized and followed. Michael’s children and their nanny without him can go to the grocery store, play at the park, or go to a show. He has indeed giving them a very thoughtful gift. They can decide how they choose to live their lives. So wearing the veils isnt taking away their choice, it is in fact giving them choices later on. They can be identified as his children if they wish, or they can decide not to. It is in fact VERY unselfish of him…

  • countrybabe

    He used to do it because he was afraid they would be kidnapped. It seems like it is child abuse now. I mean how long is he going to dictate that they wear these veils and. What about when they grow up? People will know they are Michael Jackson’s kids. Plus there are a lot of people out there with more money than he has and death threats, and they don’t make their kids wear veils.

  • Victor

    RE: Anne

    I’m not talking about fans, and I never even mentioned them. I’m talking about reporters/journalists, lawyers, and ever other people in the industry that have all spent time around them. Martin Bashir even had to admit that Michael was a great parent and that his kids are well behaved, and this is a man that spent over a month with Michael. I find it hard to believe that Camp MJ somehow forced them to say all those things?

    You can’t force bad, terrible, and unruley children to act in a good manner around other people. I know that having worked with children myself. If you have a spolied brat child, they will be that way regardless of who they are around. Kids don’t put up pretenses like we do. So ‘controled’ or not, it wouldn’t make a difference.

    Those children are being educated by private tutors. Michael Jackson has quite a large entourage, the nannies and especially his long time live in nanny, Grace I believe her name is, is not simply ‘just’ a nanny that sits around and tells them what to do and not to do. It’s not unheard of for a child to be home school is it?

    What it is, is this: People have become so accustomed to the thought that Michael Jackson is 1000% insane, they can’t fathom that maybe he knows what he should and shouldn’t be doing as a parent. Dangling his kid and all that jazz that happened years ago didn’t help that either. I’m not saying it’s not his fault, but that’s why.

    There are several other Hollywood celebrities that have young children too. We never see them taking their kids to school and they also travel a lot. But no one questions them. No one gasps in horror and assumes that their children aren’t being taught anything.

  • MudRocks


    simple, the media’s crazy, fans like u are crazy, haters like u are crazy. They need the elast amount of privacy they can get, and thats cool with me.


  • http://GPost Team Lara Croft

    disturbing on so many levels. if he chooses to cover their faces, fine, he is the father but why expose them to this circus then? if their privacy is so necessary that their faces have to be always covered, why take them to fao schwartz on a busy day?

    there are security threats against children of a lot of prominent people. heirs to thrones, children of presidents, children of controversial figures, children of billionaires, children of famous people – i find it incomprehensible that michael believes the threat to his children is greater than other kids’. there are absoulutely NO other public figures who veil their minors consistently as michael does.

    it is on any level ridiculous, unwarranted, and completely ludicrous. the bin laden offspring are not veiled. the bush twins are not veiled. children of billionaires are not. why paris jackson – heir to a soon to be broke pop star?

    give me a break michael.

    fyi: genetically, it is possibly for two black people to have a white child (or child who looks white). it is genetically possible for a black person and a white person to have a child that looks physically white. genetically, two whites cannot have a black child (or physically looking black child). it has to do with the law of recessive genes vs dominant genes and how they cancel each other out.

    example: two dark skinned blacks can have a blonde haired blue eyed child but two blondes cannot have a dark skin dark haired child. the child may be white with dark hair but not dark (black) skin.

    who knows if the child is michael’s (probably not) given that michael is too narcissistic to have children of his own i bet.

    but the idea that the kids can’t be his because they “look white” is inaccurate.

  • Mason

    You guys are frickin’ retards. The kids obviously cover their faces in public when they’re WITH Michael Jackson so that they are able to travel WITHOUT masks when they’re with his nanny or someone else, since nobody except the mad stalkers will recognize them without masks and without MJ. Nobody that has actually spent time with Michael Jackson has said anything bad about his parenting, and child services deemed him a fit parent twice when they investigated him, which is why he still has the kids. Even Martin Bashir couldn’t stop praising him on his parenting in the outtakes from his documentary.

    And yeah, check out that mob scene that follows him wherever he goes in the world :)
