The musician daughter of the late Michael Jackson was on Jada Pinkett Smith’s Red Table Talk discussing living under the media's glare. During the chat, Paris admitted that she’s been going to therapy for several issues, including “severe paranoia”.
“I experience auditory hallucinations sometimes with camera clicks and severe paranoia and have been going to therapy for a lot of things, but that included. I’ll hear a trash bag rustling and flinch in panic. I think it’s standard PTSD,” she said.
Paris is friends with Jada’s daughter Willow Smith, who has experienced a similar upbringing in the spotlight.
Willow explained that she met Paris on the set of her mum’s TV show, Hawthorne. And the pair bonded over growing up with famous parents, their love of music, and mental health and sexuality issues.
Paris is 23 and has dated men and women. She admits there’s tension with some of her family members over her sexuality, but says she's well supported by her brothers - Prince and Prince Michael II.
“They’ve always been super-supportive. Not a lot of people can say they have siblings that support them like that,” she says, adding that Prince even joined a student-run LGBTQ+ club in high school.
Last year, Paris had a docu-series on Facebook Watch called Unfiltered in which she spoke about her self-harming and suicide attempts.
