The daughter of the late pop legend Michael Jackson got candid about her sexuality and her family’s reaction.

In her new Facebook Watch series titled Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn, Paris alongside her boyfriend, Gabriel, recently discussed intimate parts of her private life, including opening up about her sexuality to her father, E! News reports.

During the series, the 22-year-old says that because she had dated more women than men she “never thought I’d end up with a dude”.

“[I] thought I’d end up marrying a chick . . . I've dated more women than men,” Paris continued.

Paris also mentioned that the only relationships she’s publically announced, are the ones she’s been in with men, PEOPLE reports.

“The public only knows about three long-term relationships that I’ve been in and they’ve been with men. The public don’t know about most of the relationships I’ve been in,” she said.

The musician also got candid about her sexuality, “I wouldn’t consider myself bisexual because I've dated more than just men and women,” she said.

“It has nothing to do with what’s in your pants. It has nothing to do with what your XY chromosome makeup is, it’s literally just what you’re like as a person.”

Paris recalled the support she received from her father when she was younger, although she’s still confused about what it all meant.

“I didn't know that it was a thing and so, I was a little conflicted about it because all I’d ever seen were men and women on TV together and so, these thoughts didn't really make sense to me,” she said.

“My dad caught on pretty quick. I think he just felt the energy and he would like kind of tease me the same way that he would tease my brothers, like 'Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend’.”

“I’m very lucky to have that, especially so young – I think I was like 8 or 9,” Paris said. Not many children have that experience.”
