Paris Jackson Thinks Michael Jackson Was Murdered

Paris Jackson made a slew of harrowing revelations in her Rolling Stone profile, which was published online Jan. 24, 2017. The 18-year-old opened up about everything from her suicide attempt to her belief that her father, legendary singer Michael Jackson, was murdered.

Paris told the magazine that she "absolutely" thinks her dad was murdered by Dr. Conrad Murray and that concert promoters AEG Live worked her father "to death." Paris recalled her father's "exhaustion" as rehearsals began for his This Is It tour in 2009, the year he passed away from a propofol overdose. "I'd tell him, 'Let's take a nap,' because he looked tired. We'd be in school, meaning downstairs in the living room, and we'd see dust falling from the ceiling and hear stomping sounds because he was rehearsing upstairs," she said. "AEG Live does not treat their performers right. They drain them dry and work them to death."

AEG Live has denied those claims, and Michael's estate lost a wrongful death suit against the company. Dr. Murray was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in connection with the King of Pop's death in 2011. "The trial had focused primarily on whether Dr. Murray was guilty of abdicating his duty or of acting with reckless criminal negligence, directing causing his patient's death." reported The New York Times.

As far as an alleged murder conspiracy, Paris said, "It's obvious. All arrows point to that. He would drop hints about people being out to get him...A lot of people [wanted him dead]," She added, "And at some point he was like, 'They're gonna kill me one day.' It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bulls**t, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls**t."

Paris said her father's death both haunts her and makes her stronger. "They always say, 'Time heals,' but it really doesn't. You just get used to it," she told Rolling Stone. "I live life with the mentality of 'OK, I lost the only thing that has ever been important to me.' So going forward, anything bad that happens can't be nearly as bad as what happened before. So I can handle it...I feel him with me all the time."
