Recently, Paris Jackson, daughter of late musical legend Michael Jackson opened up about her sexuality and memories with her dad, via a premiere episode of the Facebook Watch docuseries: Unfiltered: Paris Jackson and Gabriel Glenn. The 22-year-old performer and only daughter of Michael Jackson said she "never thought I'd end up with a dude." "I thought I'd end up marrying a chick," she said in the episode released on Tuesday. "I've dated more women than men," she stated. "The public only knows about three long-term relationships that I've been in and they've been with men. The public doesn't know about most of the relationships I've been in," Paris added.

 

The star further explained that she says she's gay and does not consider herself bisexual because "I've dated more than just men and women. I've dated a man that had a female parts." "It has nothing to do with what's in your pants," she continued. "It has nothing to do with your XY chromosome makeup. It's literally just like what are you like as a person?"

 

For Paris, understanding her sexuality was initially challenging. "I didn't know that it was a thing and so, I was a little conflicted about it because all I'd ever seen were men and women on TV together and so, these thoughts didn't really make sense to me." However, "My dad caught on pretty quick," she said. "I think he just felt the energy and he would like kind of tease me the same way that he would tease my brothers, like 'Oh, you got yourself a girlfriend.' I'm very lucky to have that, especially so young—I think I was like 8 or 9. Not many children have that experience," Paris said. 

 

The musician remembered later moving in with her grandmother, Katherine Jackson, a Jehovah's Witness, following Michael's death. "Homosexuality in general is very taboo in the Black community," Paris said during the episode. "That on top of the religious aspect—it was something that I did feel like I needed to withhold for a while." Paris also shared that the first time she came out to a family member, the person didn't believe her. However, she was supported by her older brother Prince Jackson, who she found out joined the Gay-Straight Alliance at school to learn more and have a better understanding.

 

Now, Paris is in a relationship with Gabriel Glenn, with whom she found her "home" after an unusual upbringing. "It is also nice to finally have a home base, which is something that I've never really had before," she explained. "The only home I've ever had before was my dad and now I have Gabe, so I'm very lucky.

You be the best that I can be for yourself, while sharing love and acceptance with those who love and respect you. Lots of folks can't embrace what their lack does understand. The greatest requirement is to love one another with love greater than ourselves. If u can't do that. Pray for your self, for them, and walk away.

Paris you are a mixed up young lady and your equally mixed up father was no help. Nor was he much of a father. You need prayer and lots of it.

I guess u are the one in need of prayers for judging without knowing the facts. Just remember, there’s always a reason why and I believe that u have to respect that.

Though prayer is the foundation of wisdom, morals and understanding, we as believers are in no place to judge people based on their lives or preferences. I believe that too many "Christians" are caught up too much on satisfying man-made entities of theology rather than the spiritual aspect. The bible does say "Don't judge or you will be judged even harsher", gives God's light to those that are willing to recieve, NEVER force it on anyone!

1. Who are you to judge anyone? 2. If you weren't raised in their home, how can you say anything about how these kids were raised? You have no right, and I'm quite sure no invitation to criticize Paris in any way. Step off your soapbox and mind your manners and your business.

You should really be ashame of yourself texting this to Paris and people like you shouldn't judge and say things that they hear from others and the evil Media. I'm a white 62 yrs old woman and always loved Micheal's music and his dance choreography,including my children which are older now and have children theirselves. I'm happy to see my grandchildren listens to MJ music. He a legend now. To sad Paris and sibling had to lose their father at an early age. At least she's honest and very intelligent. And not hiding ghosts in her closet what's your excuse?
