Paris Jackson Defends Father Michael Jackson Against Sexual Abuse Claims In Unreleased 2012 Interview
Singer/actress Paris Jackson defended her father in a recently unearthed interview from an unreleased 2012 documentary. Then-aged 14, Paris Jackson confidently stood up for Michael Jackson when asked about his several child molestation and sexual abuse accusations. She told interviewer Sonia Lowe:
“I mean a lot of people are jealous of him. They will do anything to put him down, whether it is make up rumours, take him to court with lies. Everyone wants something. I will always defend him.”
“He told us that there were a lot of bad people out there, and he taught us a little about conspiracies and things like that. The older we got the more we figured things out and stuff. Not a lot of people really did not understand him.”
A spokesperson for the documentary the footage stems from, titled “Jacksonology,” gave this statement on Paris Jackson’s rare interview:
“These clips are taken from an exclusive and unprecedented series of interviews conducted by Sonia Lowe, who collaborated with Mrs Jackson on an unreleased documentary that tells the story of Michael Jackson, the artist, and the humanitarian, by the people who knew him best…Paris speaks directly about the allegations with Sonia in her first ever recorded conversation on the subject and speaks from the heart, without it being a forced or abrasive questioning…You can really see her sincerity and how ferociously she will defend her father.”
Child molestation claims resurfaced last year with the release of the HBO documentary, “Leaving Neverland.” In it, Jimmy Safechuck and Wade Robson detailed accounts of abuse at the hands of MJ over several years.
