Michael Jackson ‘was murdered’, claims daughter
Los Angeles, Jan 25 (IANS) Paris Jackson has claimed her father and King of Pop Michael Jackson was murdered.
The 18-year-old suggested Michael’s death was a “set-up” and “all arrows” back up her belief that he was murdered, reports independent.co.uk.
Paris said her father would hint people were after him and at one point, even feared they might end up killing him.
“He would drop hints about people being out to get him,” she said.
“And at some point he was like, ‘They’re gonna kill me one day’,” she told Rolling Stone.
Paris said she was certain her father was murdered and it was “obvious”.
“All arrows point to that. It sounds like a total conspiracy theory and it sounds like bull****, but all real fans and everybody in the family knows it. It was a setup.”
When asked about who would want the singer dead, she said “a lot of people”. But she did not specify who.
“It’s a chess game. And I am trying to play the chess game the right way. And that’s all I can say about that right now.”
Michael went into cardiac arrest after overdosing on sedatives. He died in June 2009. His personal physician Conrad Murray was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in November 2011 and sentenced to four years in prison.
Paris also revealed she tried to kill herself multiple times and spoke about the traumatic experience of being sexually assaulted by a “complete stranger” who was much older than her when she was just 14.
She said she did not want to go into detail about the claim but explained it had been a difficult experience.
