“This is f**king ridiculous. i am expected to literally sit on my a** all day replying to comments people leave me (positive and negative)? i have aa meetings to go to. family obligations. PERSONAL obligations. its so f**king selfish that i am literally attacked on every f**king thing i post just because people that i DONT EVEN KNOW aren’t getting what they want. I don’t know any of you. I appreciate the love and support, but the expectations are f**king ridiculous. the expectations for my DAD were f**king ridiculous. he didn’t owe you anything, yet he was ripped to shreds DAILY. i will not let that happen to me,” she wrote.

    The Jackson family are still the worst family in history. This girl Paris Jackson is only a 17 year old minor and they allowed her to underage drink alcohol becoming a drunk.

  • xica

    Now we’ll know where that fortune will go: it will go to bars, supermarkets and rehab facilities to fix her problems

  • ImOpining

    Poor kid, never had a chance being born into all of that chaos. I wish her well.

  • SquidBillie

    She needs to get off social media.

  • Michael S.

    that’s the least of the family problems.. wasn’t one of the kids raised with a bag on their head?

  • KTQ

    So? It’s her money, she can do with it what she likes.

  • KTQ

    pffft like you never had a drink as a teenager.

  • rs1981

    It was actually a blanket for when he was in public, hence the nickname Blanket. I don’t even remember the kid’s name.

  • rs1981

    Oh please. You want to talk bad ? When Robert Downey Jr was just 7 years old, his father gave him a joint, because he thought it would be funny to give him pot. That started him on that long harrowing journey of self destruction with drugs and alcohol. Drew Barrymore’s own mother made her hang out with adults at parties, where she learned how to drink & was exposed to drugs. By the time she was 16 she had already been in rehab. Lindsay Lohan and her mother used to drink & get high all of the time. What’s happened to Paris is more common than you think. I had friends in high school whose parents let them drink & do drugs, because they figured “Hey they’re doing it at home, so I know where they are.” The Jackson family is far from the worst. They’re one of the worst, but still not the worst. I’ve read of people who were way worse.

  • John

    Huge fan of her father’s, so i’m really rooting for her. But I do wish she would get off of social media. The haters are never going to leave her alone.

  • mick

    Go to meetings and don’t drink.

  • xica

    Yes, but what a waste

  • Taste My Bud

    Who GAF what she says or does? I’ve never even heard of her.

  • distachio

    It won’t stop until you get off ALL social media, Paris. Do yourself a favor and stop exposing yourself to the crazies who are just looking for an opportunity to tear you down. Your fans will continue to support you.

  • distachio

    You don’t know what they “allowed” her to do. Teenagers tend to get into more trouble when they’ve been too closely monitored by “helicopter parents.”

  • distachio

    They all wore blankets.

  • Colin McGregor

    Who GAF what you say or do? I’ve never even heard of you.

  • Do Tell

    If I were famous, I wouldn’t give anyone anything… maybe a short magazine interview now and then. That’s all.

    MJ, the King of Pop, was one of a kind. We’ll never have another MJ. He was very special. I believe he was abused by his father and possibly another and that the shame and secrecy made him unable to handle fame successfully. I think he internalized feelings of shame &, in turn, became self loathing & self conscious–leading to drastic plastic surgery to change who he was. He may have done inappropriate, childish mistakes, but I don’t believe he was ever a “predator.” I think he has found peace on the other side because he was good.

  • btpuppy2

    Alcoholism already? How sad. I do not know why she is a target, Most children of celebrities are treated well, especially after what happened to her father. She is a beautiful girl that you think people would treat kindly. I don’t get it.

  • Streikes

    The worst part of the Jackson family is the mother, shes a money hungry succubus, shes used and controlled her family since they were little

  • TheresaJenkins

    you know I don’t feel sorry for her, I feel sorry for the rest of us because her generation will be running the world when I’m OLD. and if f**king is the only adjective she has retained from all her years of schooling this country is in for a world of hurt

  • Mackie

    If you’re attacked on everything you post…. Stop posting.

  • 55vineyard

    She is such a pretty girl, hope she gets what ever help she needs, sad she is drinking hard at her age.
    I do agree with the comments about getting off, or at least taking a break from, social media. Don’t use it myself but have seen friends get so consumed with Facebook that they are on it from breakfast on, even on vacation.

  • VICTORIA

    Instead of being on Instagram, Paris Jackson needs to find out who her real biological father is because in the words of Maury-You are not the father. Meaning Micheal Jackson is not her father. She is a test tube baby and for medical reasons she needs to find her real father. Paris Jackson has serious issues and she is a spoiled brat. A few years ago Janet Jackson was trying to help her and wanted her to stay off social media and the little brat took this to the public and they sided with her because she said Janet Jackson slapped her if she did she was trying to slap some sense in her and guess what happen a few years later with Janet Jackson out of her life, she tried to commit suicide because her mother Debbie Rowe told her the truth that Micheal Jackson was not her father.

    OK – Give back all the money and you can go free.

    Another Bobbi Kristina but the sad thing is Bobbi Kristina was Whitney Houstons legacy because Bobbi Kristina was Whtiney Houtons real biological daughter and although Bobbi Kristina may have not inherited Whitney Houstons talent, who’s to say that if she had lived and had kids that Whitney Houstons talent would have been passed on to her grandkids. Paris Jackson is of no relations to Micheal Jackson because he was a sick man that he asked some of his male friends to donate sperm to impregnate women to be a surrogate to have his fake so called kids. They have no black features and you can not compare them to pictures of Micheal Jackson after the late 70′s because that’s when he started having nose jobs and in the 80′s started bleaching his whole body to appear white and using tha fake excuse that he had vitaligo. When he died they found a whole stash of skin lightening cream. So all you delusional Micheal Jackson fans need to take a seat. Paris Jackson is just like any stranger from the street who got lucky that she became his adopted daughter. She was created in the lab because Micheal Jackson did not have sex with her big fat ugly white mother who was just a obsessed fan who would do anything like give her kids to a child molestor. He liked little boys and had a type and paid millions of dollars to many boys. He was disgusting and is burning in hell right now because he should have been convicted but many people lied to save him from going to jail like Wade Roboson who is now saying Micheal Jackson did moleste him for several years and I believe he messed up Macauley Calkin who was never the same after sleeping in Micheal Jackson bed. It will come out that he used three different men’s sperm to create his test tube babies and to all of you say it does not matter because he raised them, It does matter because Michael Jackson was so insecure with his looks that he did not want a kid to have his dark skin and big wide nose and he could have passed his genes and musical talent on to them and the world could have had another Micheal Jackson but that won’t happen with his current fake adopted kids.

  • VICTORIA

    Micheal Jackson was a evil person who put on a fake persona and what he did to his friend Paul McCartney should tell you all you need to know about his character when he out bidded Paul McCartney for the Beatles catalog when it was Paul McCartney who gave him advice about the music business and he stabbed him in the back. It just came out this week which many people knew that he was obsessed and jeolous of the real King of Music PRINCE. He was sitting around obsessing about the Singer Prince and up until the day he died he had Prince on his mind and the sad thing is Prince was and is living his life and still making music and enjoying himself.

  • pontifixmax

    I’m an alcoholic in recovery (have been for more than five years) and I took my first drink when I was 12, although I did so without my parents knowing. It wasn’t until i was 40 that I couldn’t hide my drinking any longer. I congratulate this young woman for having the courage to address the problem early in her life.

  • Do Tell

    I don’t believe he was evil. He was human. He made mistakes and I think his isolation added to his troubles. I can only imagine what the entire family went through being headed by Joe Jackson.

  • Mr. Joekzalott

    Oh, please. Michael was competitive from day one; he was trained to be by his father. So was your idol Prince. He just kept it more under wraps because he spoke about nothing to the media because he was reserved and secretive. Has Michael done a lot of dumb things? Yes, because he was a child at heart. So has Prince, and any other celebrity.

    To all the people who say the Jacksons are doing a bad job raising these spoiled rich brats, I disagree because they are doing the best they can with the mess that Micheal Jackson left them with. You guys seem to forget he was like a drug addict junkie when he died and theirs no telling what those kids saw. He was bankrupt when he died at 50 years old and he was around 400 million or more in debt and was about to lose his never land ranch and he was doing the O2 London shows not for his fans but because he was broke and needed the money. I believed if he lived he would have never completed the shows and would have embarrassed himself. If Micheal Jackson was alive today it would be chaos with his kids because like most any adopted kids they want to know who their real parents are and this Paris girl strikes me as the type who would have been rebellious with Micheal Jackson and gave him hell like most teenagers do and he was so weird that I also believe like most celebrity kids, Paris Jackson would have turned on him and do things like write a tell all book and do interviews spilling his secrets. So all you hardcore Micheal Jackson fans who think it would be different if he lived and that everything was going to be roses and unicorns, I don’t think so because even if he lived, completed the London shows, he had to pay taxes, pay off his existing debt and he would have been bankrupt again because he spent his money on stupid things and was spending more money than he made. Those kids benefited from his death because like most dead celebrities they make more money dead than alive and yes his estate has earned at least 2 billion dollars but Micheal Jackson is dead, he can’t spend that money so it does not matter. His family and his fakes kids are living it up at his expense so in the end who won and by the way who ever is saying they feel sorry for this spoiled rich brat who just wants attention then you are dumb because she’s about to get 100 million dollars in a few months when she turns 18 and all she is going to do is waste it and do nothing productive with the money because she did not work hard for it,

  • James D

    I didn’t even know Michael Jackson’s had a daughter. Who is the mother?

  • Mark Williams

    Her dad was a child molester and a monkey fucker !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Prince is doing great and yes he is amazing and at 57 years of age he is a handsome man and looks so good that if you do a side by side picture from now and the 80′s, it’s hard to tell which one is 2016 and which one is from 1984. I love the fact that he did not need to hype himself up to self-proclaim himself the King of anything like the late Micheal Jackson because like he said in one of his songs there is only one King and that’s God. Prince knows he has great talents and where it comes from. He can stand alone and play dozens of instruments and create music by himself. He did not need a Quincy Jones or a string of other producers like the late Micheal Jackson and he said at the beginning of his career he never wanted to be compared to Micheal Jackson but rather the greats like Miles Davis, Jimi Hendrix the real musicians. Prince and Micheal Jackson are different. I feel it’s a insult to Prince who plays the guitar out of this world,the piano like Mozart other instruments who sings live to Micheal Jackson who did not play any instuments and lip synced at his concerts and some of his fans say he played instruments but I never seen a live video of Micheal Jackson in concert behind a piano or playing the guitar because he could not. I’ve seen still pictures of him sitting behind a piano miming. Prince never felt he was in competition with Micheal Jackson and back in the eighties he turned down a lurcretive deal with Coca Cola because he felt they were trying to pit him against Micheal Jackson who was with Pepsi at the time, The competition thing was always in Micheal Jackson’s head because he was jealous and obsessed with Prince. The purple one Prince did not have a care in the world but like Chris Rock said years ago Prince won the battle.

  • Hata H. Zappa

    Man, bleep all these haters. They’re not paying her bills, so why should she even give them any of her mind.

  • Hata H. Zappa

    No. That’s exactly the WRONG thing to do. Because no matter what a person posts, there is potential for it to get attacked. What she should do is stop caring.

  • Do Tell

    I never compared the two men bc they were so different. MJ was the result of an unhappy childhood with a mean father. I thought MJ was a great singer (his voice) and entertainer. His body of work is incredible and his songs really make ppl want to get up and dance. I loved more songs by MJ than Prince. Many more. It’s great that Prince plays so many instruments. That’s his thing. But imo some of Prince’s songs are a bit messy-like some stuff with “The Time.” I thought the instruments sounded clangy and noisy-not such great arrangements.

  • VICTORIA

    Micheal Jackson was no child at heart. Stop with your nonsense. That was all fake like the wig he wore, his fake nose that was falling off from his multiple plastic surgeries, etc. He was a grown adult man who used the excuse all of his life that he did not have a childhood but behind closed doors people who worked for him said he had a deep man voice and was faking when he talked soft like a little kid. That’s mental and the public like you fell for it. It’s was not normal for a grown black man to sleep with boys and admit to holding baby dolls. There’s a difference to doing dumb things and crazy insane things. Where there’s smoke there is fire. He paid off many boys and settled with millions of dollars to avoid child molestation cases. How can you defend
    This dead man when he took a baby and held it out the window. That’s not dumb that’s insane. He looked like a clown with his red lipstick when he was taken by the police for his mug shot photo when he was charged with the child molestation allegations. He had both adult magazines and naked boy books that were found in his home. He is just like OJ Simpson, he was clearly guilty but got off but like they say just because a jury does not convict you does not mean you are innocent and you know Micheal Jackson molested those kids because how could they describe in detail what his private part looked like. Come on now. He clearly was a child molester. All the signs were there. We joke about it but it’s sad. He lured little boys and their fanatic parents with his money. He had the amusement park, candy, animals etc. Instead of taking women on romantic trips it’s known that he took Jordan Chandler the boy to Europe and stayed in hotels together locked in the room doing god knows what and his manager at the time told him it’s not right and he told him he did not care. In the end karma came back to both OJ Simpson and Micheal Jackson. One is dead and the other one is in jail. Both Madonna and Brooke Shields outed him by saying they never had any relations. Tell me who was his girlfriend when he died. You can’t but you have Prince living it up like the red blooded male he is by dating beautiful women like Kim Basinger, Vanity, Sheila E, Troy Beyer, Apollonia,Jill Jones, Models , etc the list goes on and on. So when Prince sings about love, sex and relationships, it’s real and comes from the heart and life experiences. If you notice in most of Micheal Jackson love songs he sings about talking on the phone. It’s not real because he clearly was not into women but this week we found out he was obsessed with watching Prince performances and movies which was revealed by music mogul L.A Reid. Can you imagine being on a date with Micheal Jackson and you go to his house to watch videos of Prince. That’s crazy because if you are a woman lucky enough to go on a date with Prince and go to his home, It’s going to be very romantic and you will be doing things that won’t include having your cloths on. So hell yeah, I’m Prince all day. One he’s alive and two he’s into the ladies.

  • rs1981

    Same here where she’s concerned… As for you, at least you acknowledge you have a problem. That’s a step in the right direction. I hope you’re able to overcome your addiction. I am the child of addicts, and I am the only one, who doesn’t touch drugs or alcohol. I tried alcohol on a few occasions, just to test my tolerance level. My level is half or less and I am sick. I got lucky.

  • rs1981

    True, but the youngest one was the only one referred to as Blanket.

  • Mr. Joekzalott

    I ain’t reading all of that. You obviously have a vendetta.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    Probably your parents are paupers because I get nothing.

  • pontifixmax

    Thanks for your thoughts. I feel pretty secure in my sobriety, which I am grateful for. One thing I’ve learned is that being sober has to be worth it, as in it has to offer me more than drinking did in order to keep with it. That said, as someone who got sober later in life, I feel that I’ve had an easier time with it than people as young as Ms Jackson since I no longer feel that I’m missing anything by not drinking. If anything, my social life improved rather than woraened when I stopped drinking. However, for those in their teens and 20s, alcohol is so much more central to their social lives so im sure the pressures to drink are far stronger

  • http://www.howimbetterthanyou.com/ yeknomgod

    Agreed on the latter. Clearly you get nothing. Only one of my parents has passed and the inheritance doesn’t go into effect until both are no more. They wanted my sister and I to be independent so we didn’t end up as teenage drunks paying our PR departments to tell everyone how horrible our lives are and to quit being so mean.

  • Stanley

    The Dynamics -or the lack thereof- are quite evident here. No one should take blame more than Michael Jackson and the baby factory Debbie Rowe. Add in the most dysfunctional extend Jackson family, and you have the perfect ingredients. AA meetings at 17? Who on God’s Earth is provided the booze? This whole sham ( Michael “wanting to be a father”) is an absolute shame. There’s more to come. Stay tuned.

  • Stanley

    I don’t know about he monkey part.
