Michael Jackson - Michael Jackson's Daughter Speaks Out In Grandmother's Documentary

Michael Jackson's daughter Paris detailed her grief over her father's death in a documentary made by her grandmother just weeks before the teen's reported suicide attempt.

Katherine Jackson has made a film called Remembering Michael as a tribute to the late Thriller hitmaker, and the footage features interviews with all three of his children, Paris, 15, Prince, 16, and Blanket, 11.

Paris reportedly filmed her scenes just weeks before she was hospitalised in June (13) following a reported suicide attempt, and she gave an insight into her struggle after her father's passing in 2009.

She revealed her dad never fulfilled a promise to teach her his most famous dance move, saying, "He promised he would teach me how to moonwalk but never got around to it. I really hope his legacy lives on forever. I will never forget him ever. He was amazing."

Jackson's youngest son, Blanket, who rarely speaks out, also details his memories, while Prince claims he didn't find out the singer's real name until he turned six: "He (Jackson) never really wanted to tell us who he is as a person. It took me until I was six years old to learn his name was Michael Jackson - he was always daddy to me and that was it."

Katherine Jackson funded the new film project through crowdsourcing website Fundanything.com. The documentary, which is unfinished, has a fundraising target of more than $3 million (£2 million).
