Michael Jackson - Paris Jackson: Dad Wanted Us To Have A Childhood

Paris Jackson says her father wanted her to have a childhood.

The 14-year-old daughter of the late Michael Jackson King of Pop understands why he covered their faces when they appeared in public although she wasn't aware of why at the time.

She told Oprah Winfrey on 'Oprah's Next Chapter': ''I was really confused. I didn't get why I was wearing a mask. I understand it now. My dad wanted us to be covered [because] he wanted us to have a childhood.''

She added that the decision enabled her and brothers Prince and Blanket to go places other children could, like restaurants.

Pairis shared: ''Chuck E. Cheese was one of our most favorite places to go.''

Michael's only daughter with ex-wife Deborah Rowe opens up to Oprah in an interview on airing on Sunday in the United States.

She speaks about life with her father, who died aged 50 at his home in Los Angeles due to an overdose of the powerful anesthesia propofol.

His physician, Dr. Conrad Murray, was sentenced to four years in prison after he was convicted of involuntary manslaughter for administering the drug.

She said about his passing: ''It never gets any easier.''

The article says Paris is the 14 year-old only daughter of Michael and Debodrah Rowe, which is correct. It doesn't say she is the oldest.
