Paris Jackson Believes Her Father Was Murdered

In an explosive new interview with Rolling Stone magazine, Paris Jackson reveals that she believes her pop superstar father Michael Jackson was murdered.

In her first ever in-depth interview, the aspiring model says, “Absolutely” when asked about the subject. She goes on to note, “Because it’s obvious. All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bullshit, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup. It was bulls***.” She explains that her father would often allude to the fact that this might be a possibility, saying that he would drop “hints about people being out to get him.”
