Celebrities often have their days and nights booked for events, interviews or projects. It takes conscious time and effort for a celebrity to take take time off work and focus on their families. Sadly, this is why many of them miss out on the experiences that their children are having.
However, in recent years, many celebrities, who are categorically workaholics, have been able to separate work from personal life and balance the schedule. One of such celebrities, was Michael Jackson and his child is a testament of that fact.
According to Paris Jackson, her father was attentive to the extent that he figured out her sexuality quickly. Many parents, who are also popular people or workaholics have the tendency of missing the signs in their children’s sexuality. This can last for many years, until the cat is finally let out of the bag.
Fortunately, Michael was nothing like that. During an episode of Paris’ Facebook Watch series titled “Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn — Paris,” she revealed special and amazing things about her dad.
The most amazing part of her revelation, was when she said that Michael not only caught on pretty quickly, he also found a way to make her feel loved.
He would occasionally tease her about her romantic opinions and interests. She said that he was always excited when any of his kids had a girlfriend, as he always got to tease them about it.
Many may have pictured the legendary Michael as a work-obsessed person, but there was a part of him that always wanted to make his children feel the best way possible.
Michael Jackson was born on August 29, 1958 and sadly, he died on June 25, 2009 at the age of 50.
“The King of Pop” as he is popularly known as, became active in the music industry in 1964 and till his death, Michael was always on his game, when it came to music. The songwriter and dancer released dozens of records and made a fortune out of his career. He was not only a great musician and dancer, he was an attentive and supportive father for his kids, especially Paris.
Paris was only 11 years old when her dad passed away and 11 years later, she cannot stop thanking him for his support and acknowledgement. A lot of women and men are often scared to come out to their parents or the society for fear of being rejected and cast away.
This is why some of them continue living in a lie and compromise for the rest of their lives. Fortunately for Paris, she had a dad like Michael who loved her unconditionally and always wanted to see her smile. RIP Michel Jackson.
