Paris Jackson Reveals Her “Very Religious” Jackson Family Never “Accepted” Her Sexuality

Daughter of the iconic Michael Jackson – Paris Jackson – spoke out about her experiences with her family’s reaction to her bisexuality in an interview with Willow Smith on Facebook Watch’s former “Red Table Talk” show.

In the interview, she revealed that her “very religious” family never fully “accepted” her bisexuality. Paris stated, “Most of my family is very religious, and homosexuality is taboo, so we don’t talk about it.”

Despite the lack of acceptance, Paris expressed her love and respect for her family, saying, “I respect that they have their own beliefs. I’m not ever going to be disrespectful to someone who has their own beliefs.”

She also mentioned that she has found support from her brothers, Prince Michael Jackson and Bigi Jackson (formerly known as Blanket), who have been there for her throughout her journey of self-discovery.

Much of the Jackson fam’ has a background in both Jehovah’s Witness and Muslim faiths, which may contribute to their conservative views on homosexuality. Paris acknowledged this, saying:

“I understand that it’s taboo in their eyes. But times are changing. We are getting better at inclusivity and being open-minded.”

Paris also discussed her relationship with her biological moms, Debbie Rowe, describing it as “cool” and expressing her gratitude for the opportunity to get to know her better. She mentioned that they share similarities and enjoy spending time together.

Throughout the interview, Paris emphasized the importance of being true to oneself, regardless of societal expectations or cultural norms. She stated:

“I’ve had to accept that myself. I am very lucky to have the family that I do, but it’s hard when everyone around you thinks one thing and you’re the opposite.”

Paris Jackson’s candidness about her journey of self-acceptance and her experiences with her family’s views on her sexuality shed light on the challenges faced by individuals within religiously conservative families. Her story serves as an inspiration for others who may be going through similar struggles, encouraging them to embrace their true selves and promote understanding and acceptance.

Keep being you Paris, pretty sure your pops would be proud.
