Paris Jackson Then and Now — See How the Pop Princess Has Grown Up! (VIDEO)
Paris Jackson is just 16, but she's already lived a lot of life. In the video above and text below, we chart this pop heiress's life so far — from 1998 until 2014!
The only daughter to the King of Pop, Michael Jackson, Paris was born on April 3, 1998, in Los Angeles. Her mom is Debbie Rowe, whom Michael met during her time working for his dermatologist.
After splitting from Debbie in 1999, Michael raised Paris at Neverland Ranch along with her two brothers — with Elizabeth Taylor and Macaulay Culkin as Paris’s godparents — until his tragic death in 2009.
At Michael's televised memorial service, the whole world watched as Paris eulogized her father, saying, "I just want to say… ever since I was born, Daddy has been the best father you could ever imagine. And I just want to say I love him… so much."
After that horrible time, Paris's life seemed to settle down. She stayed with her siblings in the care of her grandmother Katherine Jackson. In 2012, she made People's Most Beautiful List.
Then, another turbulent period; Paris attempted suicide on June 5, 2013, and has since been undergoing therapy.
But by all reports, Paris is doing much better now, so we're excited to see her life and career go onward and upward. Check out the video above for a visual chronology of her life!
