It’s hard to believe that just three years ago today the King of Pop, legend, brother, son, and father Michael Jackson died. While life has more or less gone back to normal for the rest of the world since the singer’s untimely death in 2009, his children and family members are still very effected.
“It never gets any easier,” Paris Jackson recently told Oprah on Oprah’s Next Chapter. The pop sensation’s daughter also revealed she is bullied at school as well as online because of who her father is. Siblings Paris, 14, and Prince, 15, enrolled in the Buckley School in Santa Monica, California in fall 2010 while Blanket, 10, is still home-schooled.
Read on to see Paris’s Twitter tribute to her father.
This morning Paris tweeted, “RIP Michael Jackson .. Dad you will forever be in my heart <3 i love you.”
The amount of love and support she has received from fans is unparalleled! The tweets are mostly words of encouragement to stay strong and recognition of how wonderful her dad really was. Fans have supported Michael through his many court appearances and even during the trial when his doctor, Conrad Murray, was found guilty for administering an overdose of propofol, the drug used to treat Michael’s insomnia. Murray was charged up to four years in prison for involuntary manslaughter.
Three days ago the middle Jackson child tweeted a picture of her mother (Debbie Rowe) and father kissing with the caption, “mommy and daddy! <3″
Jackson had full custody of the children growing up after his divorce from Debbie in 1999. Some, including his daughter, thought it was bizarre that Michael had his children wear masks growing up while out in public, but she now understands and told Oprah, “He told us that when he was younger he didn’t really have a childhood. He would always be in the studio singing while the kids were out playing. He wanted us to have that.”
Even though their father is gone, he left them with a large fortune that is still growing. Each child is said to receive 33 million each when they reach adulthood and made almost $100,000 alone from the ticket sales of the tribute concert, Michael Forever.
With the recent hologram of deceased rapper Tupac Shakur, who knows if Michael will be next. Though one thing is for sure, The King of Pop’s legacy will certainly live on forever.
