Los Angeles - Paris Jackson has defended her father Michael after police reports painted him as a "sex-crazed predator".

The 18-year-old aspiring actress has come to the defence of the late Billie Jean hitmaker after a police report from 2003, which surfaced on Tuesday, documented a list of seized items allegedly from his Neverland property.

She wrote on Twitter: "Unfortunately, negativity will always sell. I urge you all to ignore the trash and the parasites who make a career trying to slander my father.

"The most pure people are always torn down. It will continue to be proven that my beloved father has always been and forever will be innocent."

And Jackson's estate has also come to his defence, insisting his name has just been "dragged through the mud" now he was unable to defend himself.

They said in a statement: "Seven years ago this coming Saturday, the world lost an amazing artist and humanitarian devoted to helping children in need in all corners of the world. Michael Jackson's fans, including the Executors of his estate, prefer to remember the wonderful gifts Michael left behind instead of having to once again see his good name dragged through the mud by tabloid trash.

"Everything in these reports, including what the County of Santa Barbara calls 'content that appears to be obtained off the Internet or through unknown sources' is false, no doubt timed to the anniversary of Michael's passing.

"Those who continue to shamelessly exploit Michael via sleazy internet 'click bait' ignore that he was acquitted by a jury in 2005 on every one of the 14 salacious charges brought against him in a failed witch hunt. Michael remains just as innocent of these smears in death as he was in life even though he isn't here to defend himself. Enough is enough."

An investigator on the case alleges they found "disgusting and downright shocking images of child torture, adult and child nudity, female bondage and sadomasochism" at Jackson's home.

Jackson was acquitted of seven counts of child molestation and two counts of giving an intoxicant to a minor in 2005.
