Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Daughter Bullied At School

Michael Jackson's 14-year-old daughter was bullied when she started school.

Paris Jackson - the only daughter of the late 'Thriller' singer - used to be educated at home alongside her brothers, Prince Michael, 15, and 10-year-old Prince Michael II, who is known as Blanket, but following their father's death in 2009 it was decided they would attend school.

However, Paris - who is trying to carve out a career as an actress - admits their enrollment didn't go down too well with the other students and says she was picked on, but refused to let them upset her.

She said: ''People try, but it doesn't always work. At school, and some people try to cyber bully me. They try to get to me with words, but that doesn't really work.''

Paris also revealed she is wary of making new friends as she's not sure if they like her for her or because she's famous.

She told talk show host Oprah Winfrey: ''If I feel someone is being fake to me, I will just push away.''

Paris also spoke about her childhood and said her father - who died of acute Propofol intoxication in June 2009 - wanted her and her brothers to have as much fun as possible because he felt he had missed out having become a singer at a very young age.

She said: ''He told us that when he was younger he didn't really have a childhood. He would always be stuck in the studio singing while the kids were out playing. He wanted us to have that.''

Paris and her brothers are now in the care of Michael's mother Katherine Jackson.

It was a her choice to go to a private school, if this it's true, because it just seems invented ad hoc to gain the sympathy she needs. Seh went there to promote herself and Oprah used her to raise ratings. Careless of the fact that Oprah ENJOYED calling MJ a pedo for years and every time she has the chance. Michael Jackson did not want this for his children, he wanted them to have a normal childhood, a thing that he couldn't have, he loved them dearly the filth it's happening and would be HORRIFIED!!

There are crule people in this world today so much Jealousy. Paris you are a beautiful young lady. You keep you're head up high. And keep going because at the end it's going to fall back on them. What could they possibly say about you. You're beautiful I can tell that you're very smart but most important is that you're a human being and one of God's children. Just always remember when they act ugly that God loves you. that's all that matters. As you're Father would say, "Love You More" Angela Culberson, Cincinnati, Ohio. culbersonangela@ymail email me Paris. would love to hear from you.

It was a very good interview and this young lady handled herself very well. I'm a little worried about Ms. Katherine though, she still has such a heavy heart (understandable) about losing her child. Her face told it all, and ANYONE who questions the love she had for Michael are just stuck on stupid. Michael would be so proud of how his children are blossoming and how respectful and smart they are showing every skeptic. They were raise right what else can we expect??
