Paris Jackson is sending love to her late dad Michael Jackson in his birthday. The model took to Instagram to share a cute picture of them together and heartfelt words for her dad.
Paris also recently stood against white supremacist during her speech at the MTV Video Music Awards.
Sending lots of love to her dad
Today, August 29, would have been the late, great Michael Jackson‘s 59th birthday.
Eight years after his tragic death, the legendary singer’s absence still hits hard. It goes without saying that his beautiful children are still mourning the loss of their beloved father.
Paris took to Instagram to share an emotional message along with an adorable throwback photo.
“birthday wishes to the love of my live, the one person who showed me what passion truly was, the one that gave me solid morals to live by and how to dream,” Paris captioned a photo of herself kissing her dad.
“i will never feel love again the way i did with you,” she said. “you are always with me and i am always with you. though i am not you, and you are not me, i know with all of my being that we are one,” she added.
“and our souls will never change in that way. thank you for the magic, forever and always.”
Paris was 11 years old when Michael died at age 50 in June 2009. She has paid tribute to her dad in interviews and social media posts since, and got a new tattoo in his honor in June prior to the eight-year anniversary of his death.
“my angel, my king, my universe. 8 years without feels like a lifetime,” the actress wrote June 25.

Standing against racism
The teenager was on-hand to present the award for Best Pop Video, but she used the major platform to try and inspire young viewers to fight against white supremacists all over the country.
Paris’ speech was a direct response to the violence in Charlottesville earlier this month, and it was incredibly powerful.
“We must show these Nazi white supremacist jerks in Charlottesville and all over the country, that as a nation, with liberty as our slogan,” she said.
“We have zero tolerance for their violence, their hatred and their discrimination,” the star said in her speech at the awards show. “We must resist.”
